These? What are these? Rodents? Cartoons with rodents?

 

 

I'm really curious. They look horrible, but there are quite a few of forum members who copy each other and use this "character" for whatever reasons, only they know. So un-imaginative to copy someone else, but whatever. Not everyone has the gift of imagination and individuality and uniqueness...

So please enlighten me at the cost of some neg repping on me (of which I couldn't care less), what the heck are these things?

 

When I 1st learned about MLP I thought I was getting old, but now I'm sure I am...

They're seals. That's really all there is to it.

That's a seal:

 

Those above in my post are rodents! They look more like Splinter from Turtles Ninja than seals...

Nope, no trolling this time, just my frank opinion that they are ugly and asking what they are supposed to be.

Noted. Your opinion and the opinion of the hundreds of people using them are obviously not the same.

Seals. That's what they're meant to be, that's what they're designed to be and that's what they are. By standards, yes, maybe they look more a rat or some other assorted rodent, whereas someone else may indeed perceive them as a seal. Dependant.

Well now I can die happily knowing that I know what they are. Thank you.

 

Still doesn't change the fact that they look ugly. :smiles:

 

P.S. And don't even dare to say: "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". If ugly is the new cute, that doesn't mean it's right. The seal picture I posted is cute, these so called "seals" are just plain ugly. There's no debate here whatsoever.

Cartoons. They are cartoons. They don't have to look like an actual seal. For you info, this is also a seal:

I had the same question a while ago.

 

They are not simply copies of each other.

Sure they all show a seal in some situation.

What makes them uniqe is the fact that they all were derived from the user original avatar.

The artist is very capable of getting the key elements in their avatars and make them a seal avatar.

 

In my case this would be something female looking with an red eye blind.

In your case, hmm difficult since it is machine, rather than something "living".

If that actually was the case, I would agree. But they are all made by one guy, bowser_nl.

The real Elephant Seals are actually pretty funny looking, even cute in some poses, but these avatars on forum are plain ugly looking and they look more like rodents than Elephant Seals.

Since it's sorta kinda on-topic here: what's with your new(ish) avatar?

 

No offence (I mean it), but I've always somehow associated this kind of icky avatars with a very, very bad posters - and you've always been an epitomy of a level-headed one to me (the avatar doesn't change this opinion, ofc:tongue:). I'm just curious for a story behind it - if any.

I too was confused!

 

I thought there were little rat monsters from a cartoon or something!
