It's....

My avatar is a photograph of an ancient Egyptian artifact showing the Dynasty XVIII pharaoh Amenhotep IV a.k.a. Akhenaten adoring the Aten or Solar Disk whilst receiving the Ankh or Eternal Life. When I first registered here, my avatar was a screen capture of Shikinami Asuka Langley from Evangelion: 2.22 You Can (Not) Advance; but I soon decided a more (shall we say) neutral avatar would be wise, at least for now.

My signature is a quote attributed to the Italian Renaissance architect, engineer, painter, poet and sculptor Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni. I wish we could include small images in our signature blocks.

Here's a new avatar (a cropped snapshot from Yi yi) to celebrate the fact that my post count has gone over 1000.

"Often I get the feeling that deep down, your little girl is struggling with your embrace of filmfaggotry and your loldeep fixations, and the conflict that arises from such a contradiction is embodied pretty well in Kureha's character. But obviously it's not any sort of internal conflict that makes the analogy work. It's the pigtails." - Merridian
"Oh, Oz, I fear I'm losing my filmfag to the depths of Japanese pop. If only there were more films with Japanese girls in glow-in-the-dark costumes you'd be the David Bordwell of that genre." - Jimbo
"Oz, I think we need to stage an intervention and force you to watch some movies that aren't made in Japan." - Trajan

I might make a few adjustments to this avatar and reuse it in the future:
Image

Upon SSD's suggestion, here's my new avatar featureing Toji, Kensuke, and Hikari, photoshopped from various Evangelion art and artists. I was even able to stick Eva Unit 04 under the torn filmstrip:
Image
If anyone has followed my thinking in my latest avatars, the filmstrip suggests the character within the frame to be living in a façade, or a mask used to shield themselved from a harsh reality. Featured within the frame is poor Kensuke, as his view of the Evangelion seem to be more playful (or at least not serious at all), unlike the harsh reality that Toji and Hikari had to face.

EDIT: I should probably leave the background white, as to make the filmstrip easier to see.

Thanks!

And, um. Yeah, SSD. Eva-03. Again, I blame posting during midnight. The changing of the dates and the slow aligning of the stars must do something to my head. Either that or I'm just usually tired around this time, but who'd believe that silly story. ^_^

I have to agree that your current avatar is wonderful, FreakyFilmFan.

I like both versions a lot, but prefer the one on the left. The right one looks like it was sent through Overlay, and while that smooths things out a lot it also washes out details.

I agree your current one/avatar on the left is best.

Btw, you might want to fix this info in your sig:

Sig fixed.

And you guys are right. The more I look at it, the more I like my current avatar. No changes today. Thanks for the positive feedback. ^_^

@O7: I like!

@BobBQ: When I saw your avatar, the head of your avatar would alternate it's rising and falling with the one in your post. It looked like a coordinated dance and made me laugh.
