Playoff Avatars? All avatars in post #196

Hi guys,

I've lurked without an account for a few years and just opened an account a few months ago. The previous playoff avatar thread was closed but it didn't look like any certain decision was made. I never use an avatar on any of the different forums I visit but with the playoffs just days away now, I thought I'd humbly throw these out there for you guys to bounce around. I know nothing about making avatars or gifs so someone else will have to do the final work if you like these. I wanted to recognize the team's achievements but at the same time keep our eye on the prize.

I like it. One suggestion I have is to flip the first pic so the logo is facing the correct way.

I would definitely run with the streaking dude combined with 'peaked too early'

I like the whole concept though

Done and fixed in original post. For the record, all the images are from the internet, all I did was a little editing and added text.

I like "It don't mean bup, without the Cup" better.

Everyone's got rings, only hockey's got the cup. And the use of a short hand of bupkis is pretty much gold.

OP - those are really great, I like the first one especially. I could crop and animate them for you if you'd like?

This board is not the best at being decisive (neither am I tbh) but I made these after we won the PT - feel free to use.

Okay, here's a new set using Bup.







Two options for fourth slide:

Peaking too early is a cool idea the more I think about it

I think we're a pretty good spot if we work off the Lincoln avys from here. I still think it'd be great to incorporate Mt. Rushmore with peaking to early.

Slide 1 - Lincoln pics as done
2 - a negative: PP, faceoffs, whatever else he has. The Streak-er could be one as well
3 - Peaked Too Early with the Mt. Rushmore pic, maybe with the Presidents Trophy at the top of the mountain
4 - playoff logo

Why can't we just reuse the Gotham City ones?

i think trace kuja came up with a couple of Glee-related ones which are worth posting.

perhaps our playoff theme should be everyone has a different and unrelated hawks avatar - to represent our disorganized mentality

eta: i actually really like a "win it for minny" theme. it has a nice troll-ish nature to it

I like it. Are we all going to be deciding on one set of avatars?

Hi everyone,

I'm doing a thread on the playoff board to showcase all 16 playoff teams' avatars if they've got a playoff set.

if/when you guys decide on a theme (or themes) and have some finished products, I'd really appreciate it if someone would stop by the showcase thread to post a couple of samples and explain the theme(s) for all the fans to see. You can find that thread here:

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1414765

Thanks.

I thought we had a majority of "Lincoln/Presidents" if we win the presidents cup, and peaking too early if we didnt. :S

Both are rather mehish, if you ask me. Especially considering other teams avys. But it is what it is.

I'm down for whatever. I'll go with the flow.

I agree with you. I'm not feeling either of these themes.

That only really applies to Toews.

There are some good pics in the 1st couple of posts but you have to remember, it has to transfer well to a 125X125 format and will likely be downgraded to fit size.

I like the pics and captions deytookerjaabs had in the first slide in the other thread the best. Not crazy about about the other slides though.
