I just drew it when I realised how not-cool my last one looked. Who gives a damn?

Because i love the medieval period.

Although this image in particular is borderline Renaissance, there weren't any particularly interesting and colorful Crusade era illustrations so I choose this. Part of an illustration of the War of the Roses.

I won the Abobo's Big Adventure contest, hosted by Deathink. He made me art, I cut out the part with my face for the icon. Boom.

Honestly it was part of a painting I liked, and one that was one of the few I had saved. Interesting artist, can't seem to find his site again...

My icon is the ship shield indicator from the Descent game series. I love the game so naturally I chose this. Was easy to crop with MSPaint.

I had a rooster as my icon ever since the last redesign. When the new redesign came up, I lost that icon and I couldn't find the picture again, so I just took a different picture of a rooster.

The little hand sign has meaning to me that goes all the way back to like 4th grade. I took an old picture and messed around with it in photoshop. Now it's become my little Newgrounds logo thing I guess lol

Because the Persona comic is pretty cool.

I was going to use a furry picture, but most of the furries on these forums love yiff.
