Avatar album

When Sprite saw that I had photo albums for my children she naturally wanted one of her own.
And as we had been discussing Voki and avatars on Serendippity http://johart1.edublogs.org/
and made a pact to each create a Voki http://www.voki.com/ before next week I went on an avatar creating spree on Sprite’s behalf.

I played with avatar creation (and paint) at Create a Simpsons Avatar http://www.simpsonsmovie.com/main.html and produced this

Sprite did not like it all and we had a rehash of the cartoon realism levels and anthropomorphism debate – see https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2009/08/14/elephants-in-the-waiting-room/

We tried My Avatar Editor http://www.myavatareditor.com/ and paint and produced

… surprise, surprise… she didn’t like that either – she said it looks artificial!

She didn’t like the  Doppel Me http://www.doppelme.com/  and paint picture for the same reason

So then we used Pocoyize

http://www.pocoyize.com/online/

and paint and produced this

and she liked that better  and we made a couple more


And she liked the avatars we made with paint and WeeMe from http://www.weeworld.com/ She was even able to show off her laptop and Twister game and Caramel Cat and one the Black Dogs got into the picture too

I liked the ability to show different emotions but Sprite was very cross that I captured her in tears. She said that was Black Dog’s fault and insisted I also capture a happy angelic behaviour moment to balance it.

So then we tried Mini-Mizers and paint

and she loved the resulting avatars and their backgrounds so much that we made her a whole album

And she had so much fun dressing up as a mermaid that we even looked at Build Your Wild Self

One thought on “Avatar album

  1. Hi Jo

    Love these! They are terrific illustrations of some of the different avatar creators that are available

    I hope Sprite continues to enjoy her photo album and will be looking for a Voki herself soon 🙂
