Did you create your own avatar and sig. Yah back in the day I had a backstage pass to one of the big summer festivals and chilled in the trailers interviewing random talent while they did their drugs...haha. It was my Almost Famous moment.
Yeah I created both of them. I can't take credit for the shield/crest thing though, thats well beyond my artistic abilities. I simply popped the clinched fist into the shield and added the Amat Victoria Curam text (meaning Victory Favors the Prepared).
The avatar was really easy to make, took like 10 minutes in photoshop.
