Even though I have been using my own profile picture for the last few weeks I decided I would like a new avatar style pic. I wanted to design it myself but I can only draw stick men and then it looks like a spider has walked across the page. But I found OWN3dTV and this article shows you how I created a profile avatar that captures my expression 100%.
Before I go into this process I would like to point out that I am now affiliated with Own3dTV and the links I use in this article are affiliate links, if you click the link and make a qualifying purchase I may recieve a commision, this is at no extra cost to you. That commision is used to improve my streams and any left overs are donated to a top mental health charity.
Logo or Avatar
This choice is down to wether you want to portray yourself or if you want to create a brand logo. So for example if I branded tattbear I would probably build a logo with a bear, if I wanted to just have a representation of myself I would use avatar.
This is really down to what you want, but the process is very easy no matter which one you choose. So for this article and my choice was to make a portrayal of myself as an avatar.
Avatar “…a static or moving image or other graphic representation that acts as a proxy for a person or is associated with a specific digital account or identity, as on the internet”
Logo “…Also called logotype. a graphic representation or symbol of a company name, trademark, abbreviation, etc., often uniquely designed for ready recognition.”
Create A Unique Avatar
Once you have selected avatar from the menu at Own3d the creation process begins. You have many selections here that can change the look to best match you. Mine for example is very real, the raised eyebrow and scowl is just me. 🙂
You can change these options until your heart is content, once you have finished you can pay and go and the files will be available to download immediately. It is a good idea to take a copy of the Character ID so you can come back at a later date to make changes to your avatar.
Once you have downloaded your creation and extracted the files you will have several sizes all ready to use with services like Discord, Twitch and Youtube. You will also get the original avatar which you can use elsewhere.
The quality of the avatars is very good so you can use it anywhere without seeing pixalization.
Quality And Cost
The cost of creating your own Avatar is very reasonable and the quality is high, so this is the ideal service for all of us that are watching what you spend. Overall Own3D gives everyone access to high-quality GFX for your channel.
I am not slating GFX artists here, they offer a much more personalised service. But sadly not all can afford the prices. They do say ‘you get what you pay for’ but in Own3D case, you really do get great quality at a great price.
I hope you have found this article useful, I try to bring the best resources for all content creators to use to help make channels successful.
In this article, I have introduced you to how I created my Avatar and what tools I used. I loved this so much I became an affiliate to promote the services of Own3D. What did you use to create your Avatar or logo? Please let me know in the comment section below.
