    The Internet Face

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Charisma, Aug 2, 2007.

    Whenever I meet someone on the internet I sketch their face in my mind even if I see their picture simultaneously or later on. It helps me think good about them, and deal with them nicely.

    I just thought - do others have an image of me in their minds? Do others want to know what I think of them as a face? Do people have people drafting faces for them? I believe this shouldn't hurt someone or offend someone, if we remain in our limits.

    So, I'd love to know what you think I'll look like, and though many members have put up their picture here, you should try to give a picture of what you expected them to look like. I can do the same for you if you like - but you should try to state the good points and not the bad ones (where good shouldn't mean someone being white or black. Just - general features. But I guess it's okay if you state the complexion.)

    I'm sorry if I'm violating any rules. I think it's OKAY. Thanks in advance. I'm okay with a little bashing.

    Can't say I ever thought about it. Simple answer is just upload your photo solves that problem.

    I imagine you as an extraordinary intelligent Plant that can use a computer. You would have a very bendy stalk and 4, wait...3 love heart shaped petals. You also would have a couple of shiny things orbiting around you, possibly tiny scientists in crafts observing you.

    As she is in Pakistan... I find that somewhat unlikely, though not impossible.

    (Is sneaking on even though she shouldn't be on, so will poof anytime soon.)

    I do the same thing Anthrax.

    Though when I imagine someone, it's nothing I can really explain. I see people as I see their personality, I suppose.

    Like heather, before I saw a picture of her I imagined her to have very red cheeks because she is such a sweetie.

    Cogito I imagined to wear glasses because he was so smart :p

    So yeah. Rofl.

    Ok, I just squirted soda out through my nose (ouch) - thanks for the compliment though, Bick.

    I would be functionally blind without my contacts, to be honest.

    I go by the highly ridiculousunderstandable approach of thinking of everybody by their avatar, not by their real-life (Or even human) shape. So for the longest time the name "Cogito" made me think of someone shiny and bald. o_O

    There was a period shortly after I joined the forum where I thought MamaMaia's avatar was of a blue moose (don't ask), so that's how I see her now- kind of like Babe the big blue ox, but. Y'know. A moose.

    Heather- I guess it was something about her personality, but I always thought of her as a giant smily face...with rainbows....DX

    I thought of Adamant as that guy from Gorillaz...Night Haunter always seemed like he'd be a big freaky gothic bat to me...I used to imagine Hulls Raven as looking like Tom Hanks (No idea why)...I imagined Bick as a big comic-book guy drawn in black-and-white like the eye in his avatar....I see Dropbear as looking like a koala...the list goes on....

    Which one from Gorillaz?
    Stuart Pot / 2D
    Murdoc Niccals
    Russel Hobbs

    Yes, there is another, but Noodle is a girl. My guess would be 2D though.

    Actually, it was a picture of the main characters from Avatar: The Last Airbender in their album cover. Though it was small... and it would have been like all of them being on their otherwise.

    I like it :p It's simple and easy to say.

    Though I kind of just lied. Angela isn't my real name, it's just what I've been called since I was born. My real name is Angelique, but no one can say it right T.T

    Not even an inch! I, for the most, pictured you as a sweet little senior citizen, until I saw your profile. I expected you to be very, very beautiful (which you are, no offense) and maybe many freckles to make you look cute.

    *Cough* *Cough* Don't pop the dream bubble :D Yeah, this smart guy's correct.

    Hmm...cool. I first thought briefly that Cogito was a girl...but I had to correct that picture of his :) Otherwise...well...(Hey Cogito! How're you doin', girl? :redface:)
