Project Description

Create your own avatar!

Now that you've walked through my process with me, it's your turn!

Capture a photo of yourself, and start sketching your avatar in Adobe Illustrator (or your favorite program!) using the same simple shapes and line weights. Feel free to get creative with how you portray yourself, and use the photo as a loose guide.

Start by sharing a photo of yourself, process shots, then a final avatar illustration. Let us know where you'll use it!
