Hello and welcome to the avatar theme thread. Here we'll have a different theme each week and then anyone can post OOTS style characters within that theme. The only rule is that each member can only post 5 characters for each theme, also DONT post any requests here or on Veeras arts and crafts thread. We've said it before but please PM the request to the member you would like to create your avatar, be that myself or any of the other avatar makers on these forums. If you wish to add more characters later please edit your post onn the current theme instead of posting again.

Now Iíve gone through the rules you can start having fun. It doesn't matter if you've never made an avatar in your life or are an absolute master, the theme and style is the only important thing. I'll archive each theme we have and the avatars made for it here on the first post. These themes will start and end each Sunday, so you have a week to create these things. If you have an idea for a theme please dont post it here, please PM whatever ideas you have to me. I'll of course give credit to any that I use.

This weeks theme: Webcomics
Summary: Recreate a character/s from any webcomic of your choice other than Order Of The Stick.

HAVE FUN! ;D

Spot reserved for.....8-Bit Theater! *I'll edit them into this post when I'm done. *I'm also thinking of a tagline for all of them.

Thief:
http://img206.echo.cx/img206/7317/thief1px.gif
Tagline: Your GP or your HP!

Black mage:
http://img138.echo.cx/img138/1451/hadoken5zp.gif
Tagline: HA-DO-KEN!

Red mage:
http://img63.echo.cx/img63/9931/redmage6od.gif
Tagline: Let's take a look at the character sheet...

Fighter:
http://img142.echo.cx/img142/7079/fighter4ea.gif
Tagline: Swordchucks, yo!

And I don't feel like doing Black Belt or White Mage. Besides, they're not in the Light Warriors anyway.

2005-06-05, 02:57 PM
Wow, the response was very quick. Thanks for the entrants. I should probably add that if you want to add more characters, edit your post for each theme like you guys have done. A minor detail though Sneak. You were only supposed to enter 3 characters, but i've increased it to 5 considering your crime (kiddin! ;D) i'll post more of my own soon. Keep the avatars coming!... ;D

I actually did this when I first started here, but it'll probably be my only OotSatar. So, here's Grim from Life for Death.

2005-06-06, 03:32 AM
I like your avatar Wukei. Why is Grim (being the ultimate personfication of death) so worried about something. The purple background makes him look like Ville Valo or some other modern goth rocker. Nice jorb!.

Also if you guys have any ideas for themes you would like to see, please don't post them here. PM me. I'm sorry if I seem like I'm being a bossy SOB but I wanna keep this thread organized. Feel free to post if theres anything you wanna say, just make sure you edit your avatar posts if you wanna add more.

EDIT: I like Mary and The Quantom Cop pumpkinetics... ;D

If this really belongs here, this spot reserved for Nodwick theme.

I have two younger twin sisters but I dont worry about my family that much, guess its my age or that I spend more time in my own thoughts than focusing on reality. I could understand how would be bad though... ;D

You guys do know that you can pick more than one webcomic, i've used Loraod75, ALP and A Modest Destiny...

Well this Div is a disgrace to Eh' Steves race... :P But while we are on the subject who has been your favorite avatars thus far?. Mine has been Pumpkinetics Satan and the Sneaks Black Mage. Keep up the good work guys... ;D

He's their Henchman! He was hired to haul their loot around, not fight. And since when do you give your cannon balls weapons?

I know this might seem that this thread is being neglected but it isn't. The theme updates Sunday so keep an eye out for it. If you want to add your webcomic characters you'll have to enter them soon. Thanks for your time... ;D

PS: I'm fully aware that this is a badly disguised bump... :P

An idea for next weeks could be something hard. Like....mythical creatures, or something. Or maybe characters from games.

Balrogossah
2005-06-12, 02:39 AM
Thanks for the all the lovely avatars that last week produced. This weeks theme was an idea by Sneak, so thanks for that... ;D

This weeks theme: Computer Game Characters
Summary: Recreate any character/s from any computer game/s you can think of, from any system or time.

Just thought i'd tell you most of mine will be from horror related, you've been warned... :o ;D

2005-06-12, 07:13 AM

Oh, and maybe next week it can be movie characters.

Ok, I'll give it a quick shot:
Going way back to one of my favorite C64 games (!), it's M.U.L.E!
Here's one of the colonists:

An annoyingly predictable AI fellow colonist:

And the title character himself- You need him. You hate him. The one and only, M.U.L.E.!
http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a358/GreyRat/MULE.png
(For those of you who are curious, MULE was an early strategy game; try to make your colony self-sustaining within a limited time period. Simple game, but I liked it. :))

From Planescape: torment (best game ever!) the Nameless One with Morte, Dak'kon and Fall-From-Grace.

I had some trouble with finding clear reference pictures of the Nameless One, so I've been a bit creative with his clothes. *;)

[edit] I couldn't leave these two out of the picture:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/muizenstaartje/annah.gif http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v636/muizenstaartje/ignus.gif
Annah (her clothes were hard to draw in this style) and Ignus (who was really easy).

:o Ohhhhhh YES! These are so cool. My most favourite game ever. They all look excellent. Got the poster for the game in front of me right now and they look pretty accurate. Very cool.

Sneak
2005-06-14, 10:48 AM
Yeah. *That Nameless One looks so cool. I would ask to use it as an avatar, but that would be really dumb, because I've never played Planescape: Torment. *I want to, but it is only for PC, and I refuse to buy a PC. *Macs are much better, and although Windows has a lot more games, still...dammit, so many good games aren't for Mac! >:(

Muisje
2005-06-14, 10:55 AM
Anyone can use the avatars I make, except for the one I'm using right now (the girl with hat and green coat). The only thing you have to do is PM me about which one you would like to use and store it on your own web space.

Sneak, can't you borrow someone's PC? ;)

Sneak
2005-06-14, 11:07 AM
Anyway, now I have some more:

Yes, I got reminded of this because of Morte.

Just trying to think outside the X-Box. I'll answer anyone's challenge to hunt mountain wampuses anytime! (Anyway, my graphic art skillz ain't that l33t, so I needed to start simple.)

Nice rendition of Murray, Sneak. I loved all the Monkey Island games, but the last one I tried to play kept crashing on me. :'(

Thanks for all the wicked avatars guys. I can quite safely say that Shirwill Jack's are some of the most awesome tjings i've ever seen!. Fall-From-Grace and the Nameless One are my favorites. I now need one character then i'll have 5 characters, But who?... ???

Amazing Rendition of Annah there :D

Planescape had one of the weirdest DnD parties that I've ever seen in a game- even better than Baldurs Gate I!

And Morte is a force to be reckoned with-

What about the walking TV though? :D he didn't translate to the OOTS style as well?

Of course anyone can enter ;D. Just make sure that you stick with the weeks theme (incase you dont know its Computer Game characters ;) ) and that you don't create more than 5 characters for each theme. I'm looking forward to see what you create... :)

Gorbash Kazdar
2005-06-15, 08:42 PM
The Magus one definitely was, 'cause I forgot to save and upload the final version :-[ Anywho, Crono is harder... he's a kind of cluttered character design anyways...

Actually, it's Xbox as well. And I can get you screenshots, though they won't be as good as if you were actually playing the game.

Sneak
2005-06-19, 07:53 PM
Yeah, but I don't have XBox either. And the thing is, I don't really want to get XBox (or GameCube, etc.). I have a PS2, a Nintendo 64, I used to have a SuperNintendo, and that's it. I barely play on my consoles anyway, usually I just use my comp.

But if you give me some screenshots then I can try to make them in OOTS style.

Yeah, I think I found that one, but not having played the games, that is not a very good screenshot so it doesn't help very much. *And about the URL, here's how:

Right. Here we go. This one's a bit more DnD related, but:

PARTY 'TARS

Summary: Recreate one or more of your DnD groups characters in usable avatar form. If you like, you may also post a brief description of them.

If you don't play DnD, any non-computer rpg will suffice.

EDIT: Also, if you party has more than five people, FOR THIS CONTEST ONLY I am raising the avatar limit to 6, as long as all your avatars are from the same party.

Hi guys. I'm sorry that I didn't post a theme but i've been very busy lately. Actually i'm not sure if i'll even be able to post on the forums for a long while. If you wanna carry on the thread feel free, i'll change the title of the thread just to avoid confusion. Thanks for the good times... ;D

The_White_One-

Any chance that you could maybe give an explanation as to what they all are?

The first one looks like a dragonmarked- sorcerer, the third appears to be a warlock and the second to last appears to be a warrforged--- did I gess correctly?

...Very gritty drawings there.

Annex
2005-06-22, 08:53 PM
Sure..The first is a Sorcerer with a blue dragon bloodline, the second is a pair of gnome wizard brothers, the third is an arcane archer we had, the fourth is a half-orc fighter, and the last one is a human ranger... and as for the dragonmarked, warlock, and warforged guesses, don't expect those from me, sadly my friends and I dont even have access to the books those are in...

and wait...gritty??

2005-06-22, 10:25 PM
Heh...I like them! Especially the gnome.

DarkCloud
2005-06-22, 10:33 PM
gritty- as in tough and meancing and dark and forboeding and dangerous and like Vampire the Masquerade or an evil eberron campaign.

oh well, so much for my guesses...

The White One those are sweet avatars. Out of curiosity what are there alignments?

Annex
2005-06-22, 11:40 PM
Uhh...It was from a campaign about 2 years ago, so I dont have the exact alignments..but I think we were all on the good side, except for the ranger maybe, the person who played him is almost always neutral...

White One....I'm not a massive fan of the custom avatars buzz here but those are really good just as striking visual imagry. I commend you for the way you capture a real "presence" to each one particularly the Arcane archer, Ranger and Blue Dragon Bloodlined Arcanist.

From left to right: Shirwill Jack (as I played him in a Ravenloft campaign. I've also played as Shirwill Jack at several LARP events, but then as a woman ;) ) Yrah, rogue/druid with her dire weasel that has weird pilot goggles and Felmin, Yrah's hencman. It's a pain to keep you Neutral Good henchman happy in a mainly evil group.

I've made several other avatars of characters I've played in PBeM and LARP, but those are already somewhere in the old arts and crafts topic.

Mod Goddess: Hey Nixie...You can modify your posts to add more pictures rather than triple posting....Also, these may be better suited to be posted in the Oots Arts and Crafts Thread (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=comics;action=display;num=1119405459 ). This thread is really for variations on the specific theme of the week, currently avatars of your gaming group.
Thanks! :)

Also....I plan to get ones of my Exalted group up here pretty soon....I just got illustrator, so I'm excited to start playing with it. :) Expect to see them next week, cause I'm going out of town in the morning.

2005-06-24, 06:23 AM
Finally did my 6, (See my post on previous page for special rules for this week) and now they is ready for the showing.

(Note: all avatars in this post are CLOSED unless stated otherwise)
[hr]

Calair Icebrook (Elven Druid)
http://members.optusnet.com.au/da_rat/pics/CalairS.gif
OPEN

A druid from the cold south, Calair has the tendency to happily stab anything that moves for X.P. warmth. Does not get along well with her parents (Not violence, but "Darling, when will you settle down and find a nice young elf to marry?")

Will totally deny the fact that she was once married to a dwarf.
[hr]

Cheleth of Oloroff (Half-elf Sorceror)
http://members.optusnet.com.au/da_rat/pics/ChelethS.gif

A young sorceror with a knack for bad humor, Cheleth continually talks about running away prematurely, but has never actually done so. Claims to be slowly turning into a copper dragon, though we all know he's just imitating a Kobold.
[hr]

Neil the near-sighted not so good (Gnomish Kobold Paladin)
http://members.optusnet.com.au/da_rat/pics/NeilS.gif

This little paladin has always been trouble. From his very first day he's been trying to twist the code of conduct to his favour... and every time he fails. His most recent piece of naughtyness meant he must live as a kobold to understand their way of life. Has been swallowed numerous times, and nowadays does it on purpose.

(The player is also the most frequent of us to roll ones. If he touches our dice they must undertake ritual scrubbing before the game)
[hr]

Maria Bladestorm (Human fighter/tempest, my character)
http://members.optusnet.com.au/da_rat/pics/MariaS.gif
OPEN

Maria is a bit light-headed, and doesn't think things through. She it, however, very dangerous in combat, and has felled a vampire with a second's sweeps of her scimitars. (She brags about this all the time)
[hr]

Meyv (Half-Orc monk/ex-ascetic)
http://members.optusnet.com.au/da_rat/pics/MeyvS.gif

Meyv was brought into the temple of Heironeous at an early age, and has served him devoutly... until now.

When a mass misunderstanding with fatal consequences (Maria was temporarily kiilled) occured, Meyv was stripped of her ascetic powers. Currently we're on a big planar quest which, if we succed at, Meyv gains back her powers. I don't think she deserves it, but we're getting schtoof for it.
[hr]

Pip (Elven cleric. Reincarnated from halfling)
http://members.optusnet.com.au/da_rat/pics/PipS.gif

Pip is the main healer in the party, and also does some considerapbe divine Ass-whupping. He's rather snobbish about his healing, possibly due to the fact he was once Neil's... religious support. (And very glad that's no longer the case)

left to right fist line:
1. Khonar: party "leader" (more like spokesperson) gold-dwarven prince in exile and enchantment specialist

2. his cohort, elite royal guard captain and packing mule, Patsy

3. Second man and Halfling arcane trickster; Moreaster the Magnificent

4. Primairy fighter, Jacob (half-giant Psionic warrior/ some floating Prc) wielding a Large deep-crystal greatsword

second line:
1. The party bandaid kit, also does banishments and turrnings, Balar

2. Heres, Human Devoted Defender, no attack to speak of, 32 ac. Here seen on defending duty

and then there is Flits, the shifter, constantly changing form (preferabbly 12 hearded hydra) doesnt even remember what race he belonged to before, therefor no pic

2. in stead there is Fazzumar, powerbuild epic sorcerer/paladin specializes in fire, recurring NPC (three levels paladin would give him his +11 charisma to saves, my dm is minmaxer)

oh and to round it up, the whole group gathered toghether for a grouppic

http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b135/Light_Dragon/the_party2.gif

Kalen- Kobold Paladin

*Onwards, Friends!
*If Evil Vanquishes Good, the Good Cannot Vanquish Evil, so therefore- I think- the logical step would be that Good should Vanquish Evil before Evil Has a Chance to Vanquish Good- Therefore A preemptive Strike is in Order!
*Philosophically, I have no problem with doing that- but practically, my good friend barbarian- it is impossible to kill a man twice.

Blunt- 1/2 Orc "Thief" (Think- Arnold Schwartzenegger")

*I tutor under Highwayman for seven year. Then to grad sklll- In dat, I cat burglar. *In doing so- I destroy half of house- but still steal cat.
*Me Not NEED Stealth
*Me Not 'Rogue' - Rogue is Pansy Girlyman
*Me Strong, ME Not Suave- Me BLUNT
*Me wear not LIGHT, but HEAVY armor- Only Best for BLUNT!
*Wait- You want me to Loot, Pillage, and Rapier? HA! I THIEF, me not use Rapier, Rapier too Small- Mee Use Sworpier!

(Note: If requested, I will detail the Sworpier... a behemoth of a blade, the likes of which has not been seen by mere mortals.)

Yieellorien- Elven Barbarian (Quite a story there, he was found as a babe and raised by Barbarians...)

*Eat Flowerstar of DOOM!
*Me Bash with Ancestral Bow!
*GNOME? What is 'gnome?' Is it type of food?
*Me LIKE tattered cloth
*IEEEEELLIELIURIEEEELLL! *cough* something in throat, apologies.

"Theo" Thyeovyxxixxallieenxix- Myxyzl Wizard

*18 tentacles of DOOM!
* My people weren't meant to walk the earth, but by Pahedraaghg, that's what evolution's for!
* Unleash the Magic of War!

Gilthanas Glowingheaded- Gnome Cleric

*Oh.. hmm... now I remember- greates of the greates who was ever conceived to exist in the land or on the planes and who could be said tobethesaviorofourpeoplepleasesmileuponousandgrant usmercyforweareatroubledlandandaterriblepeopletoha vedisregardedyourwordsanddeedsforsolongwithoutoffe ringmuch.

2005-06-25, 07:19 PM
...and that's my party *;D. I orginally created them in January 2004 (in sketch form) shortly after discovering this comic.

I drew about 55 different sketches of a reasonably amusing 6-frame comic- the only problem with it though is that the lettering and the drawings are a bit crude and hard to read- so they're not worth uploading until inked... and I'm a bit lazy going over lines and things...

Basically the groups stats and personalities are as follows:

[hr]
Gilthanas- Naive, Cleric of Ehlonna... Around comic 45 or so Ehlonna announces her move from Neutral Good to Chaotic Neutral and stops caring about her worshippers. Gilthanas freaks out, but is able to confront her- showing an inner strength despite a nieve exterior.

STR 10
DEX 10
CON 6
INT 15
WIS 15
CHA 12

[hr]


Yiellorien- Another naive character, Yiellorien was raised by barbarians and sheltered his entire life... well as much as someone raised by barbarians can live a sheltered life. He was kicked out of the tribe when his aged adopted father was confronted by the other tribesmen that too many of the womenfolk were attracted to him- and that with his darkvision he could hunt better than everyone else and kept on bringing home more and more meat and dishonoring the 'true barbarian humans'

STR 14
DEX 16
CON 10
INT 6
WIS 10
CHA 11

[hr]

Blunt - A 'Thief' who doesn't buy into all that 'roguish' sneaking or disarming traps or anything else. In nearly everything but name, he is a fighter. He's too big to hide, too clumsy to disarm traps, etc. But nevertheless, he gets the job done, bashing through walls and breaking traps and soaking up damage.

STR 18
DEX 6
CON 18
INT 6
WIS 12
CHA 9

[hr]

Kalen - Ran away from home at an early age after being ostracised by the Kobold Community for his love of the blade and neglect of the magic... Kalen was raised by a strange race... Kalen respects the blade and dislikes magic- seeing it as a back-stabbing way to fight.

STR 12
DEX 15
CON 9
INT 14
WIS 15
CHA 18

[hr]

Theo - His race was not meant to walk or survive outside of water, but through an enchantment, Theo managed to. Amazingly brilliant, and sneeringly superior.

STR 16
DEX 16
CON 7
INT 22
WIS 18
CHA 12

[hr]

Felicity- A dwarven Psion. Keeps to herself. Very mysterious.

STR 15
DEX 8
CON 14
INT 15
WIS 17
CHA 10

yay,
I wont go into stats, dun have m for one, dont care for two

but i do have some quotes to share:

Khonar: "Stand Still Ye Freak!" (hold monster)

Patsy: "Goh' 'm sir" (coup de crace)

Moreaster: "Come here my presious"

Jacob: "Raaah! Eat psionically enhanced bigass deep-crystal sword!"

Balar: "Begone ye foul demon-scum" (banishment)

Prinses: "oh Heres, if my brothers find out theyll kill us both"
Heres: "I'll stand in front of you, take the force of the blow. Protection"

pumpkinetics
2005-06-26, 12:39 AM
I have a couple taglines of my own. Here's the favourites for the group. (Not quotes as such, but their personalities summed up into one juicy nougat-filled line)

Calair: "Shut up."
Cheleth: "Look! A Monkey!" (More the player's thing)
Neil: "If I kill enough things, my god will be happy!"
Maria: "Solving the riddle of the dragon's all well and good but I'VE KILLED A VAMPIRE!!!"
Meyv: "At least I was trying to be useful..."
Pip: "See, there's a distinctive difference between waiting a minute for the fireball to strike and Charging in when the creature's first been spotted!"

EDIT: 1 hour to go people! Next theme up shortly.

Did this one in about 10 minutes this morning, using a bit too much of Zz'drti (I use GIMP v2, there may be better drawing tools in the current version). Need to mess with the pencil settings a bit, lines aren't that clean (you can use the area select then stroke the selection to make basic shapes, works well enough).

Any tips CthulhuChris? You manage to pack a lot of detail into your figures somehow...

Okay, after about five minutes some time thinking the new theme is:

SOAP BAR 'TARS

Summary: Recreate characters from any television series from the past 50 years. (don't want it getting too obscure) An IMDB (http://www.imdb.com/)link would also be helpful.

Also, I'm thinking from now on different people choose the thread topics. PM the current chooser (At the moment me) and nominate yourself or another (Willing) poster. I'm thinking a change every fortnight.

Okay, judging by the number of responses, I will let this theme go. Sadly, I'm rather restricted to posting access (see this thread (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=banter;action=display;num=1120376703 ;start=0#0) for details) and I don't think I'll bother putting up a new thread myself. So people, you have 2 choices:

1. Let this theme continue to sunday, or

2. Someone posts a new theme in the next 24 hours. (No later) That person will be thememan for the next fortnight.
