You need to be careful when posting picture of yourself like that, it's the best way to end up in the "House Of Mirrors" by Pollyanna ...

You've been warned ... :)

Hey everyone...

Which one best suited? ...A? ...B? ...???

Pick G! Pick G!! :)


Funny stuff, Henri. C is a classic lol

The vampire one worked pretty well as a BD head ... I mean, no one in their right mind wants a deadly screaming creature on their reso ... apart from Bermuda ...

Bermuda's reso is 3 down ... http://www.ghostnote.net/vbforum/sho...-of-10-16-2011

It's for the tour to support Weird Al's Alpocalypse album:



Point is, I like the 3D effect with the green vampire in on the drum head - it looks like the head is coming our of the bass drum's inky blackness (wooooo). But a less bizarre face with more character could be sensational IMO

BTW Henri, hate to say you missed a perfect opportunity ... with H, instead of "look at me" the logical sign is "I'm with stupid ---->" ... and point it at the guitarist hehehe

I take it you've seen the Drumming Cartoons thread, Luke? Not photos, just p1ss take caricatures.

Happy to engage in silly photos if others are ... maybe when you finish your tripod drumming practice you can give us a photo :)

I hadn't seen that thread before now, just went through the whole thing! I now understand some of the members' avatars much better, haha! I attached a couple pictures of myself, but I think no matter what you do, it would be an improvement ;)
