I have a new custom made avatar for myself. It is my Minecraft skin. How do you do it? It is very simple, and free.
Step 1: Go to to this website: http://minecraftskinavatar.com/en/
Step 2: Enter your MC username or choose a skin file. To get a skin file, go to http://www.planetminecraft.com/resources/skins/. From there, search what skin you want, and then click download.
Step 3: Click on "Start Making Avatar". Then you can choose whatever setting you like best. You can change the border color, background colors, and figure type. Here are a few figure types.
Step 4: Once you are satisfied, click "Finish and Download". Then you can download it and share it.
Extra: Now, I did not like the way the border looked on the head, so I went on Google Drawings and edited it. I made the head cubic, by pasting it on to the original. If you choose round like me, and want the head to still be cubic, go onto this site, http://signaturecraft.us/create_avatar.php, create a head, then go to Google Drive and make a drawing with the original on it, and montage the head onto it, or if you have a hat. you can also add that, either by getting a image, or by inserting shapes.
I hope this teached you something, and be sure to stay tuned for future posts, and I will see you all later. BBYYYYYEEE!!!
