What does your avatar say about you?

SienaSiena Posts: 15,493 Skive's The Limit
Heyy

So a picture can say a lot - a thousand words apparently. 

So whatever your picture is atm - why have you choosen it? And does it mean anything to you? Would be interesting to read :)

I change mine a bit - but at the moment i just have it cause i just like the look of it and the colours and shapes of pinkish &  black & triangles and Not over done but still looks interesting and nice
“And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    I have no idea what mine represents, i really love the pastel goth lifestyle and this art was based on that. i guess the picture spoke to me most because of all the flowers and hearts especially the black one, which could represent wearing a front, when in reality you're kind and loving deep down but maybe don't show it outright so you don't get hurt?

    or maybe its just a nice picture haha x

    I change my avatar way too much. I tend to go for cool pieces of digital art - nothing with any deep meaning, just anything visually pleasing. I ran with this one for a very long time, which is probably still my fav:

    my avatar is the view from the air ambulance on one of my trips to hospital, we landed at an out of use airport and we had to fly between 2 bridges to land and it was quite spectacular, and not many people can say they've done it lol, I just picked it cause I liked the  view :)

    My profile pic is generally a picture of me, or a drawing I did. It's a picture of me right now obviously, but I can't say why I do that. I guess I just want people to know what I look like :sweat_smile:

    That and I kind of want to show off my cool coloured hair since I'll be getting it changed in a couple weeks. 
    What do you mean I have to think of an intelligent signature?

    I haven't changed mine in a 2 years? In december. Mine represent that music allows me to be free from all life's roles
    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    Mine is a picture I took when I was on holiday one time :heart: I thought it looked kinda cool. 
    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    I spent my summer hanging out with some cool birds of prey-the picture here is Ruby, she's a tawny owl and when that was taken she was 12 weeks old, she's much bigger and less fluffy now!

    Mine is one of my sketches I thought looked okay, I'll probably change it again soon once I loose confidence in my drawing haha

    Mine is a sloth because I love sloths, and has a cup of tea because I LOVE tea, but also it kinda represents the person I'm trying to be - calm and content :smile:

    I just like the look of it and also because I feel lonely and alone that I may aswell be on the moon or somewhere lol but Sometimes it’s peaceful being alone & observe things

    Didn't put a lot of thought into mine.... it's just the horse I ride in my riding lessons and riding is my favourite thing in the world.
