Been using Len as my avatar for nearly a decade (fuck has it really been that long?) and Punkish Len is probably my fave Project Diva module, so...

My avatar was this shot of Majin Vegeta for a while:

However, I felt like challenging myself and doing some art stuff, so I traced and corrected it (with my mouse, since I have no tablet at the moment) into Yamamuro's Buu arc art style:

Colors are the Dragon Box, but with a bit of extra contrast, and the outlines are thick so that they will stand out at 100x100 pixels. I'd like to think I did a good job of capturing Yamamuro's likeness, as I used several screenshots for reference.

Really great work! It looks straight out of the show.

Decided to go back to an old classic. Didn't feel right without it.

Always thought Freeza was a cool villain since I was a kid, so an avatar of him was a no-brainer.

Decided to look up Midorima and Takao yaoi since the vibes in the TV series are so strong.

I drew mine lol. It looks like Goku but it's actually not, it's based on a fan character I made.

I think Touhou is neat. I choose my pfp depending on my mood tbh. But it's mostly going to be vibeo games.

The name, the avatar, and the dumb tumblr joke kinda came to me as a set. I ran with it, and shall now change nothing (unless it's a different image of Monaka's nipple, I guess).

Well, my username is meant to represent Ma Jr. in all of his evil glory from the 23rd Tenakaichi Budokai. And to me, the full body shot of the moment he first locks eyes with adult Goku is a striking image. Piccolo really was scary back then, and (other than Frieza) is probably my favorite villain from all of Dragon Ball.
Training myself to drop the "Z" when referring to the adult portion of Goku's story from Toriyama's original manga. The story, from the moment Goku met Bulma through Goku flying away with Uub, is all DRAGON BALL.

I actually prefer the Goku vs Tenshinhan and Goku vs Piccolo Jr. rivalries to the Goku vs Vegeta rivalry.

The current Piccolo Jr. avatar I have is from my favorite artist in Dragon Ball, Minoru Maeda. And it is such a piercing stare, full of hate and malice. In particular, I love how tiny Piccolo's pupils are; that adds a ton to his demonic, evil look, whereas when he becomes a hero, he tends to have larger pupils. I love hero Piccolo, but I'm nostalgic for his villanous days also, hence my avatar. :D
