Avatar Album 2

A bit over a year ago after participating in a SerendipEd webinar http://johart1.edublogs.org/2011/03/05/edublogs-serendipity-webinar-overview-avatars-and-vokis/  about creating Voki and avatars I created an Avatar Album for Sprite https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2011/03/05/avatar-album/

Recently the topic was revisited on the webinar http://johart1.edublogs.org/2012/03/24/edublogs-webinar-overview-a-look-at-some-avatar-makers/ and although I only attended the last few minutes I learned of several avatar creators which I had not previously seen

So Sprite posed again for a portrait and a campaign poster for the Best Australian Blogs 2012 competition http://www.sydneywriterscentre.com.au/bloggingcomp/index.html  and she was very pleased with the results

Here she is holding her portrait which was created using Flashface

I tried out several of the avatar creators mentioned by Jerry Blumengarten (@cybraryman1) on his “My Avatars page” which he added after the session to his already amazing collection of pages of useful education related links.

I am ashamed to say I cannot remember which avatar creator yielded this image but Sprite liked it enough to use it for her campaign poster for Best Australian Blogs 2012

And despite Sprite’s aversion to pictures of people which are too cartoonified and animals which are anthropomorphised https://spritessite.wordpress.com/2009/08/14/elephants-in-the-waiting-room/ she does love to dress up for Build Your Wild Self http://www.buildyourwildself.com/
So we revisited that site and she had fun dressing up as a butterfly peacock!
