How to Create Human Avatars


Create human avatars with an Internet-based 3D avatar generator. These generators are associated with 3D virtual worlds, such as IMVU, Second Life and Teen Second Life, in which the avatars have homes, shop and interact with other avatars. The 3D avatars represent the identity of the Internet user and are built via the 3D generators by the user, who selects every element of the avatar's appearance, clothing and accessories. In the creation process, the user may create either a 3D animated version of himself, or an avatar that looks and dresses completely differently from the user. Either way, the avatar generator gives the user the ability to control the creation of a human avatar, then animates the avatar in anticipation of venturing out into the virtual world.

  • Browse the various virtual worlds and decide which site to use to build the human avatar based on the artistic style of the avatars, as each generator produces avatars with their own unique look.

  • Navigate to the site and create an account, then download any required plug-in so the 3D technology employed by the site works correctly.

  • Choose a man or woman human avatar to create, then pick a skin shade and head shape.

  • Select the length, style and color of the hair, the shape, color and placement of the eyes, the shape and thickness of the brows, shape and placement of the nose, and shape and color of the mouth. Add any age lines or facial marks, and add makeup if desired.

  • Experiment with the various wardrobe options presented by the avatar generator until satisfied with the avatar's outfit. Give the avatar shoes, and accessories in the form of hats, scarves, gloves and jewelery. Add props in the form of bags, balls, skateboards and pets.

  • Save the human avatar for use in exploring the site's virtual world, or in other Internet-based communication.
