Not sure where I found it originally (SA forums? NeoGAF?) but it's Scribblenautted version of Jack Bauer. Originally it was changed to get the quest achievement but funny enough after a shave and hair cut, I sorta look like this now (right down the messenger bag).

Just because Solid Snake is awesome. And it's a nice drawing.

@simian: That's actually a really cool avatar. I should get one of those. 
As for mine, it's just a picture of me. It's a picture that my best friend took when we went to Sausalito (where the Giant Bomb offices are located!). We had a good day, but I'm sad that I don't hear from her anymore :(

A Devil's Horns picture i took in my room using my then-new webcam... I think it looks alot more epic-er than a random snapshot in a bedroom which is why i fancy it. 
You can see the iron window fence thingie through the blue curtains in a certain spot 
EDIT: if you're asking about the PROFILE picture, its a screenshot from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.

Sarcasm is hard to understand. By using the international symbol for written sarcasm I seek to make the world a better place.

Was playing Professor Layton when I first came to the site and decided to make an avatar out of it.
Changed it to the Layton 2 art when that came out but otherwise kept it same just for recognition's sake. :)

#36 Posted by iSylence (345 posts) -

Because Mario is awesome. I'm also told sometimes that I look a bit like him. In my pictures I have me dressed up as him :D I own the costume, quite proud of that lol :)

#39 Posted by jakob187 (21662 posts) -

You mean avatar, not profile picture. 
My avatar was originally Viewtiful Joe throwing a peace sign.  I said "fuck peace" and cut one of his fingers off.  It's an irony of who I really am:  I'm the asshole that will flip you the bird for any reason, but I'm also this lovable dood that kicks ass in his own little special way. 
Plus, it just looks cool.  It's Joe flipping you off!

#40 Posted by RedEyesBlueBunny (1011 posts) -
@FirePrince: i think Jimmy is a pretty good dragon name.
#41 Posted by DCFGS3 (1054 posts) -

I once imaged searched for the Joker, and put it as my MSN picture for a while when I was doing my Drama solo, which was inspired by the Joker. I just decided I liked it, plus the Joker is cool, so I kept it.
