Virus or Humongous big. Virus has some potential, but humongous is widely known. Tie it in with some "Why you" memes and I finally think Bryz may be worth his contract

Go Humongous Big or go home. I like the virus idea.

Philadelphia Flyers- Free Fruit- Picture of Simmonds.

We could have pictures of sieves, buckets/baskets with holes in them, giant craters and something like "can you find the hole?"

I like the virus idea. Also think that something could be done around jam.

Maybe a parody of those old got milk adverts, but 'got jam?' instead.

Heck, combine the two.
Lavi wanted more jam? Diabetes. It's a virus.

why would you want a playoff avatar of something negative? Why not have positive attitude towards your team and avatars. Just sayin.. Virus / bryz are all kind of negative.

Why not combine the Humongous thing with the Virus thing?

Pic of JVR: "Humoungous Concussion"
Pic of McCrossin: "Humongous virus"

Pic of Hartnell: "Humongous Hartnelldown"
Pic of McCrossin: "Humongous Virus"

Pic of Bryz: "Humongous Five-Hole"
Picture pans to Bryz from winter classic with hilarious look on face: "Humongous Bench"

I wont even be asking for an avy since I dont post here enough, but I like this idea. However, I think the McCrossin pic should be captioned "Just a virus" so Humoungous doesnt get overused.

Just my .02

Little early for this kinda talk imho, especially since we're still a ways away from the playoffs and the Flyers haven't been exactly tearing it up lately and they're closer in points to the 9th spot than the 1st. Then again the Rags probably won't be caught for 1st in the East, and the Flyers are only 2 points away from the (probably best attainable) 4th spot and have a game in hand on the Pens as I type this. But, it never hurts to be prepared early.

Anywho, read the various posts, liked some ideas. Humongous/Virus seems to be the favorite so far. Here's an early first effort I came up with.



Thoughts and constructive points welcome, as long as you don't use overly technical drawing terms. And FYI this wasn't made in photoshop, but my cheap-ass downloaded freebee GIMP imaging.

This with "JUST A VIRUS" is my vote as was said above.

Humongous is getting overused.

Yeah, I myself didn't really like combining both "Humongous" and "Virus" themes. True, they're probably the 2 biggest memes of this season, but they don't really have any common ground and to me, they don't mesh.

Side note, I couldn't quite get that last sample under to 20kb or less without completely ruining the quality of photos, so I'm going to tinker with a slightly larger border that works on both frames and hopefully that cuts down on it a bit.

IMO it has to be "HUMANGOUS" with an 'a'

Played around w/ the border. Went with a WC kinda look.



It's still giving me grief though. It's both 20kb and 125x125 and isn't able to work because "remote file is too large." Looks like I'm still going to fidget with it.

Yeah, not a whole lot I can do with that in GIMP. It's got some decent effects, but its text tool is pretty bare-bones. I had to manually create the 3D shading of the black under the orange.

Finally got the border large enough to inversely lower the file size under 20kb. Modeling it now. Maybe the text looks a bit better.

I love it. Text could be better, but in general that's exactly what I was looking for.

Nice job.
