Creative Beginnings gives all of you 2D artists a chance to show off your beautiful avatar profile photos in this thread! Share your favorite edited ("Photoshopped") avatar profile art right here.

Some suggestions for what to share here:

- Show off your current avi art and let us know how you created it, or who created it for you
- Give a play-by-play of your default profile photo over the years to see how you and your style (and IMVU fashions) have progressed over the years. You can use Archive.org's Wayback Machine and input your homepage URL to find your old photos (can take a minute to load on slow connections)
- Share tips and tricks on how to create beautiful avatar art on IMVU!

You can share your image directly in the forum post (500x500 pixels or less) using the forum code: [img]your URL pasted here[/img]



We're excited for the entire community share their wealth of knowledge with all users in this Creative Beginnings activity!

I'll go ahead and start off the thread:

I started off on IMVU in 2009 with these as my default pics before finally editing them in Photoshop:



This was my first 'Shopped image in about 2010


I had to adjust the brows in PS because they were so high on the forehead! Smile I made minor changes at the time, highlighting and shading and adjusting hair since I was still new to Photoshop.

My current avi pic (link) made in 2014 contains quite a bit more editing. I made minor edits to the hair, skin, and eyes (which are all beautifully made), but I reshaped the mouth almost entirely by hand! Matt and other IMVU artists had given me pointers on using layers, layer masks, and the Filter Gallery to create this image.

I'm currently working on a brand new avatar image and I'm happy to report that I barely have any touchups to do---the quality of avatar products is so stunning!

Excited to see your old avi pics and hear your tips!

This is the first Avatar edit I made, it was fun and i mostly did blemish edits.


This was the second one I made. I wanted something more bright.


This is my most recent Avatar Pic/Edit and it definitely my favorite. I did all the edits by hand. I'm still perfecting my hair edits so i just softened it up and bit so it didn't look so rough around the edges.

Hi! I do a lot of graphic design and I love it!

When I first started my art used to look like this..


And now it's more detailed and realistic like this..


My avatar edits are cartoony and more softer now than when I first started. I enjoy doing edits for others and seeing different styles and interests of someones avi! I use OpenCanvas for editing with various color palettes to help me with some guidance.

I always tried to make animated avatar pictures and this is the collection of my own animated avatar pictures over the years. Using Camstudio, Super and Macromedia Fireworks for the creation. At the beginning it took me a lot of time to get it animated. At present i need some 2-3 hours to make a polished animated picture. However i really would like to have a bigger filesize allowed for the avatar pictures. Not only 200kb Wink
