I have decided to change the picture that represents all that is Troggy. The default triangle square design has served its time. It is time to put something up that defines Troggy across all the sites. So, what should I change it to? I have a few ideas, but haven't come down to a solid decision yet. Maybe a picture of burning peasants or a Chuck Norris beard/fist?


I might need to borrow some artistic talent from you guys. I can code, I just can't draw.

Decisions decisions...


Trogdor on paper wins unless someone does make some awesome bear dragon beard fist man. Trogdor does have the beefy arm fist. So got the dragon and fist part taken care of.


There we go. Thanks goes to waffles for the fine photo. Now you all can stare in awe at him. Flex it troggy!

    @Troggy, I cut you up an HD image of trogdor, in case your prefer it to the black and white one ... it will render better when its small – waffles Nov 23 '09 at 20:28
  • @waffles: That would be cool. I do have a cool color version of trogdor somewhere. You are right though, the ouline BW version would be more ideal for a small image. – Troggy Nov 23 '09 at 20:36

    @Troggy, I edited cigars answer and chucked it there, it may need to be cropped a tiny be tighter ... also the V shaped eyebrows may need a bit of bolding so they are not lost when small. – waffles Nov 23 '09 at 20:42

    This would make a good tattoo. Come to think of it, the dragon should have this tattooed on his arm. – Bill the Lizard Nov 20 '09 at 22:02

    @Cigars: almost... but to be truly self-referential that dragon needs the same thing tattooed on his arm... – quack quixote Nov 21 '09 at 16:31

    @~quack: But then the dragon wouldn't be Trogdor ... Trogdor doesn't have tattoos! – John Rudy Nov 21 '09 at 17:00
  • Alrighty, you win. Unless someone does make some awesome bear dragon beard fist. – Troggy Nov 23 '09 at 17:34
  • W00T! (plus 15) – John Rudy Nov 23 '09 at 17:41

Here's some more ideas to choose from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troglodyte

  • Interesting idea, not sure if it would work great in a little icon though. – Troggy Nov 23 '09 at 17:49

... there is only another fist.
