    I'm new to these boards, but not to forums, and I've seen signatures in the past. However, they seem much more creative and obscure here than elsewhere, so I'd like to have a general discussion on how you came by yours.

    (Hopefully I'll get some context on the quotes you all put in!)

    The picture portion of mine was inspired by the board game Monopoly and one of Unicron's lines from the 1986 movie. A friend of mine made the image based on the concept that I thought up. The text portion is a quote that I've lived by nearly all my life.

    All my signatures come from the top of my dome. It's all about being creative and having fun while making your signature. I take a lot of inspiration from the Fandom nerd rage that happens nearly every day.

    Do I really need to explain my love for Spider-Man? Or Marvel for that matter?

    I found mine on Tumblr and felt it was appropriate at the time.

    I like the character, found a picture of the character, and GIMP'd it to be a PNG file (invisible background).

    It appears that I posted this in the wrong section.

    my sigs usually are of customs or something of that sort.

    The latest one is a skewed pic of a WIP that I've yet to finish....maybe it will be in time for TFCon's Art Contest.

    I made it after Cartoon Network played a very cruel joke on the world.

    I've been cursed with a fairly good memory which often makes it difficult to forget things. As a result, it's easier to tune out the useless stuff from the beginning rather than have it bounce around my head forever.

    My sigs are generally just amusing pics I've put up somewhere in these forums that I liked enough to see/show more than just the one time. Some (like the old DotM Devcon doodle) were made specifically to be my sig.

    The Transformers Scale Project link is more for my own sake as I keep wanting to reference it without having to dig through the Toy Discussion forum over and over, though I feel there ought to be some kind of easily accessed guide to scale in TFs for those like me crazy enough to attempt it.

    Mine is just of my fave band, Hollywood Undead, I've been meaning to update it to include their remix album, but I've been neglecting it. I forget what my old one used to be, it had something to do with my toiletbot, and Ultra Magnus.

    I got inspired by a picture I found on Facebook and photoshop'd it. I'd say it's all about imagination and fun.

    I've had this for a long time now. It's a combination of things I love in life.

    - The 7000+ islands of my mother land
    - Monster Hunter
    - El Nido, Palawan
    - My skin colour
    - Our beautiful language

    I made it myself of course.

    Quotes are from textsfromlastnight.com with TF references, and the pic was taken by me at last year's BotCon. It's my car and the the guy in the BB suit came over to pose with it.

    From the TFC Herc Shades reveal... it was three panels... one without shades, then putting the shades... and a big epic pose thing.

    I thought Horatio Caine of all things, made a silly set of one-liners... and then left it at that.
