This is the Avatar of myself that I created. To get inspiration I google searched images of Japanese aname characters. I knew I wanted my avatar to look similar to me, but much more cartoon-like and cutout looking.
I started creating the eyes, using Adobe Illustrator. I then decided on a face shape and skin color. Then I created hair, similar to my color, but a little lighter and much bigger. For the background, I wanted to make it look sky-like or underwater looking.
