Graphic Design: Create Your Own Avatar

One for (almost) everyday of the week! Learn how to make these cool avatars to rock your social network!

About this course

Have you ever wondered how people create their own vector avatars? On this course I'll teach you how to create simple but appealing avatars that will capture the most significant characteristics of any person using Adobe Illustrator. You'll be able to use simple shapes and transform them into faces, eyes and all the elements that a face has.

The course will be divided into several lessons, each showing you how to create a different style for your avatars, so you can easily follow along.

What project we are going to develop?

On this course we'll create six different types of avatars. We'll create everything using basic shapes and tools. While I'll be creating my own avatar, you can create anyone's avatar since all the concepts can be applied to different designs.

Practice each concept as you follow along so you can understand what's behind each different style.

Who's this course for? Requirements

For this course you don't need any previous skills, the concepts are explained easily so you can follow along. So even a beginner can follow along and get an idea of the endless possibilities that can be created with basic shapes.

We will be using Adobe Illustrator CC, it is recommended that you use this version since some tools are only available in the most recent versions of the software.
