Why hello there,
I’ve been attempting to create myself an avatar. A cute little cartoon mini me. Primarily, to be my virtual self on the Belly Belly forums. But I might even branch out and make me a little one for my blog too.
First off, a big thanks to Sarah, my Internet Guru, for walking me through it. It’s not as easy as I thought it would be. And as usual, I am not as clever as I think I am.
So, in the spirit of a self depreciating sense of humour, I thought I’d share my efforts with you.
My first attempt. Not bad, except it only contains me. Everyone else was cut out. Ahh, I get it, things have to go in the little white box.
Attempt number four. Groovy, baby. My only objection is that I really wouldn’t wear a midriff top. But at that stage I hadn’t figured out the majesty of layers, and midriff was the only style that worked with the legs.
Attempt number five. My favourite so far. I put the Man in there as well, because he was whinging that “all he is to this family is the bankroll”. *Sigh*. I did try explaining that the program is a doll maker, so the boys will never be as aesthetically pleasing as the chickies. He didn’t listen. Anyway, I do like the peace sign I’m flashing, and the Doors shirt I’ve got on, and the ripped jeans. Very moi. But look closely- does the Chop’s face look just a little like Robert Downey Jr with a Shannon Noll flavour-savour?
That’s all I’ve got so far. I’ll keep you posted with how the next batch goes.
