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


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

  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 🙂
