The following is a complete listing of every hand-drawn "ES avatar" I have used since the summer of 2008. For every avatar, I have provided the title, debut date, image, characters, inspiration reference thread, and of course a description of how each avatar came to be and any other noteworthy items about it. The avatars will be posted in blocks of 25, with navigational links between neighboring parts of the anthology at the bottoms of each post.

This is a work in progress that may take me several months to catch up to the present on. When it is finished, I will post a link to the main Bored and include it in the Bored Reference Thread. Until then, preview to your heart's content....


And now.... the complete listing of all ES avatars as seen on my littlebeast13 account:


#1. "Computer Time"

Debuted: 7/20/08

Image

The very first ES-drawn avatar to ever be uploaded by me, and I would never upload another avatar that wasn't created or manipulated by me. ES had not even been on the Bored for three months when this one debuted. The raccoon was the character I created for myself before ES was even a thought in the back of my scary mind. This was also posted several weeks before I began leaking the portraits I had been drawing, so other than the few who were already in the know, this avatar probably confused the heck out of everyone. This was the first of the few appearances by my raccoon on the Bored, as ES quickly came to represent me instead as his popularity and dominance in my artwork began to explode.

Characters: LB, ES

Reference thread: None




#2. "Peekaboo ES"

Debuted: 8/15/08

Image

This avatar was a take on Fanny's memorable Peekaboo Fanny avatar she used for her handle Here's Fanny! This avatar also spawned the first ES art craze with mini's daughter Erin and Kiki's grandson Chapman getting their own peekaboo pictures.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8494




#3. "Hello Squirrel"

Debuted: 9/11/08

Image

ES's take on the Bored Hello Kitty craze that was a dominant theme of the last half of 2008.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9403&p=101995#p101995




#4. "The Artiste"

Debuted: 9/13/08

Image

If this isn't my most famous and recognizable avatar, it should be. It was my primary avatar for just over 6 months, with just a few brief one-and-dones to interrupt it. It's very much ahead of its time in comparison to my other artwork of that era. It was the first time I used tracing lines to offset the different colors in ES's fur, a major step forward in my art.

Characters: ES, Annie

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9522




#5. "Pirate ES"

Debuted: 9/19/08

Image

Just an avatar I made for National Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: None




#6. "Infinite Birthday Wishes"

Debuted: 12/3/08

Image

Avatar made for Kiki, who I have been known to rag on her age about.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12529




#7. "Good Luck Scritches"

Debuted: 3/17/09

Image

The first avatar made just for Sprots, capitalizing on what would become the biggest running joke in the ES universe, ES trying to get scritches from Sprots. A St. Patrick's Day special.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15479




#8. "Squirrel in the Outfield"

Debuted: 3/26/09

Image

Quickie drawing of ES tracking down a fly ball in response to a thread about Fanny attending batting practice with me. This very short-lived avatar has the distinction of having my very first Found It, by mini.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15770&p=174985#p174985




#9. "The Snowmobile"

Debuted: 3/26/09

Image

Ranked 7th in the 2009 ES Avatar Countdown

This avatar was inspired by the same ballgame discussion as the previous avatar, just a couple hours later. Fanny said ES must stay away from her, so she invited him to head further west to visit Sprots. Sprots objected, Fanny noted the heavy snow they were experiencing, and this avatar was born. It became the first avatar to replace "The Artiste" on more than a temporary basis, and is considered by me to be the very first avatar of my modern system of creating apropos ES avatars whenever the inspiration strikes.

Characters: ES, MBRS

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15770&p=175101#p175101




#10. "This Egg's For You"

Debuted: 4/12/09

Image

ES's Easter avatar for 2009.

Characters: ES, MBRS

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16332




#11. "A Squirrel in Every Pot"

Debuted: 4/13/09

Image

ES's followup to the Easter avatar, and the first of what would become ES's newest fascination, avatars with Hooly.

Characters: ES, Hooly

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16332&p=182112#p182112




#12. "The Icebox"

Debuted: 4/17/09

Image

This avatar was inspired by a story posted by Bob Juch about a crazy lady in Colorado who taped her boyfriend's dog to the icebox because she wanted him to get rid of it.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16508




#13. "Four Corners"

Debuted: 4/21/09

Image

A thread about the location of the geographical Four Corners in comparison to the spot celebrated as the Four Corners triggered this avatar for Sprots' amusement. Making it even better is at the time, I had no idea Sprots lived so close to the Four Corners.

Characters: ES, MBRS

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16617&p=185511#p185511




#14. "Sparklers"

Debuted: 4/21/09

Image

My quickest drawn avatar ever I believe, and done merely to test how quickly I could turn a Bored comment into an avatar.... the comment belonging to tgirl.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16612&p=185563#p185563

Characters: ES, MBRS

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16748




#16. "The Glowing Squirrel"

Debuted: 4/28/09

An avatar created in response to an article posted by PSM about glowing puppies. This was also my profile picture I used when Hooly lured me to Facebook, which is still there even though my account has been dormant since 2009.

Characters: ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16827&p=188777#p188777




#17. "Rally Squirrels Do Dallas"

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17078




"#19. Portrait in the Shower"

Debuted: 5/6/09

More of ES flirting with Hooly after she mentioned she had to take a quick shower. ES made an even quicker avatar.

Characters: ES, Hooly

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17130&p=192598#p192598




#20. "Le Squirrel Amor"

Debuted: 5/7/09

Image

Hooly posted her pictures from her trip to Paris, one of which was of some guy near the Eiffel Tower dressed like an angel with a sign that read "Free Hug" (The other side was slightly dirtier). This is ES's take on that picture.

Characters: ES, Hooly

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17170&p=193105#p193105




#21. One Bad Mother"

Image

ES's tribute to Mothers Day, featuring the first shot of ES's mom. Nobody seemed to know what the occasion was behind this avatar.

Characters: ES, Mama ES

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17267




#22. "Too Cool For School"

Debuted: 5/12/09

Image

Cute little high school avatar drawn up after Peacock noted that she found me and Hooly's "flirting" on the Bored to be amusing in a teenager kind of way.

Characters: ES, Hooly

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17299&p=195284#p195284




#23. "Whack-a-Gecko"

Debuted: 5/14/09

Image

Drawn after Hooly mentioned receiving solicitation offers from Geico after being hit by one of their customers 2 months earlier. The turned around perspective in this avatar has always made it a favorite of mine.

Characters: ES, Hooly

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17365&p=196365#p196365




#24. "Good Morning America!"

Debuted: 5/17/09

Image

Avatar made for Hooly after another sleepless night due to chat. Interestingly enough, this was the fallout of a Saturday night chat I was not even a part of since I was at work.

Characters: ES, Hooly

Reference thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=17484&p=197650#p197650




#25. "Rally Squirrels In La La Land

Debuted: 5/19/09

Image

The third and final avatar in the Nuggets playoff Rally Squirrels series. In the Conference finals, the Nuggets played, and ultimately lost to the Lakers. The prop for ES to squish this time, a palm tree.

Characters: ES, MBRS

Reference thread: None


Avatars 26-50 >>>
