Tired Profile Picture? Cartoon Portrait Avatars are Hot!

Updated on August 23, 2017

Need a new Profile Icon? Try a Cartoon Portrait Avatar. Realisitic NOT, but Fun

This is my avatar history and review of cartoon portrait generator websites, and online avatar makers. The following shows my reviews and results. I've also included a listing of avatar makers, and profile or photo generators, that I have yet to test.

--->Me? Not exactly, but it does show some similar characteristics. This is a the last poll winner, but dressed and decorated for the season. This face has won the last 14 polls, so it's safe to say it's a keeper. If it wins again, I'll be using a Halloween-themed look.

I've had quite a few online profile icons, also known as modern Avatars, over the years. I have chosen from cartoons, funny characters, made banners, and I even spotlighted specific merchandise items I have on sale. With the addition of the numerous interactive Cartoon picture creators, there is no limit to the creative possibilities to capture a fun representation of yourself.

I would also like to ask for you help keeping me out of my avatar rut since I tend to keep one for years... Won't you vote for your choice of which cartoon avatar you think I should use for my next face here on HubPages and other online communities?

Enjoy and thanks for your assistance.

My Cartoon Profile Face for the 1980s
My Cartoon Profile Face for the 1980s

Have you thought about trying a Cartoon Profile Avatar?

The newest craze seems to be the Cartoon-Style Portrait Avatar.

I tried a few of them. Lots of options and styles.

Picking pre-made parts to make a whole never quite works out the way you think it will. My results below confirmed that, oh, I would say, without question. You'll see what I mean soon.

But it's fun, so give it a shot and see what you can come up with. It may not look exactly like you, but hey, that's half the fun and adds to the mystery of an anonymous avatar. (Who the heck is that person behind the pink furry monster?).

My Previous Avatars: No resemblence at all, but there is a reason...

An emblem for a Yamaha Roadstar(166)

A little backstory here...

Originally My husband and I created this name on eBay to buy and sell car & motorcycle parts.

Well... he still buys car parts and accessories. I buy, but mainly sell, other vintage to new merchandise. The Roadstar166 name, since it's inception, has built up over 100 positive feedback ratings in eBay and iOffer. I understand it's now a lot harder to sell or even buy with a 0 rating than it was when we started. I hate the thought of giving up our great reputation just to change the name.

Auto part sales?

Not yet, anyway, but if I could get him to part with the extra's taking possession over the garage...

invading the basement...

staking claim in the spare bedroom...

and OMG!....

creeping into our bedroom!

These early Avatars are a little bit closer to the real me...

but without showing any of my facial features

This was another iOffer avatar for my Roadstar166 iOffer store. -->

Yeah, I know. It's just "scratching" the surface of the real me, but I am blonde and do exist on coffee while I'm online

Animated to jitter something fierce...

Should I say VERY Appropriate?

My original avatar, the Flame...

was in reference to my name here, other places, and more importantly my crafting obsession. I make soy candles. Yeah I know..."Well, that's obvious". But that is my "brand" so I've stuck with it online up until my last voting results . I am updating my avatar here often, so I need your help to help stay out of my usual keep it for years avatar-rut since my name should take care of the "branding", but I'll touch more on that late

Help!  Please vote below for my newest Cartoon avatar!
Help! Please vote below for my newest Cartoon avatar!

About that Avatar Rut I mentioned earlier...

I have created a few new avatars using the sites shown below. I beg you for your help further below. So please Vote today!

About that Avatar-Rut. I do believe it is a real place. I swear I do. I have seen helpless people trapped there for YEARS. Are you? Maybe someone you know or have seen under that dusty and faded Avatar? Now is the time to freshen up that tired old avatar, so read on for the CURE. Don't forget to tell your friends that here is THE remedy. They may be relieved that someone noticed their malaise and took pity on them. :D

Want Attitude? Planetcreation's Create My Picture

May not be quite suited for a sales Avatar...

http://www.planetcreation.co.uk/createpic/

This site wants you to download a toolbar to use this application.

If you choose not to do this:

printscreen (PrtSc button)

Crtl+V to paste to MS Paint or MS Word

Edit to crop

Save.

Want Fun? South Park Avatar Maker

I really like this one. Lots of options.

http://www.sp-studio.de/

My current Avatar for iOffer.

Documented problems saving with some versions of Windows and Mac.

If you can't save, do this:

printscreen (PrtSc button)

Crtl+V to paste to MS Paint or MS Word

Edit to crop

Save.

Just for Giggles- more South Park

This one I made just for kicks. I love contradiction.

Angel landing in He... um, Heck.

Serene gone Crazy.

Laughing in dire straits. Which is worse? Clothing Attire or Attained Location? hhhmm.

Downunder not meaning Australia, but He... , well, I still can't say it... Hel....HADES.

Want Realistic? Portrait Illustration Maker

This one didn't seem to have the best quality/size,... although the end result is quite attractive.

I can say that, can't I? It's not really me, right?

Or, is it?

http://illustmaker.abi-station.com/index_en.shtml

Want Anime-style? more Portrait Illustration Maker

Now for a little more cartoonish...

but just somehow not quite as attractive.

Then again...

It could be an exact likeness.

I'll never tell.

Face Your Manga ?!? Huh? What's that mean?

Italian Manga? Face your Eat? (Re: Eat your Face?) Oh, wait... Japanese Manga meaning non-moving anime.

THE WINNER IN THE LAST VOTE. See below to vote for my NEXT FACE!

Now this looks EXACTLY like ME!

Well... maybe. :D

http://www.faceyourmanga.com

This one does require a nick name, your birthday, and your email address since it is emailed to you. Possibility of spam? Between you and me I fluff all that info beyond the email address since I figure it's none of their business, but I have yet to receive any spam.. :)

Since I've been voted into keeping this face for quite a while, to keep out of that rut I spoke of earlier, I found that I'm playing with...

Want more than just an Avatar? Zwinky

Very popular with many. Can be used as an avatar by myspace, facebook and other online and gaming communities. Also can be used to play dress up.

Bonuses included are Smiley Central, Cursor Mania, Popular Screensavers, and the the MyWebSearch® search box and Search Assistant.

I have chosen not to try it as MyWebSearch Toolbar is installed prior to creating a Zwinky. It may just be my paranoia talking, but I have had past issues with this toolbar and a file is automatically removed by Firefox 1.5.0.2 and later releases. Since I use Firefox as my primary browser, I'd rather not take a chance on this application, but I feel it is my mission not to make an uninformed judgment, but to inform others of possible options.

Read the End User License Agreement prior to creating your Zwinky, and if you can accept the terms, then by all means, do proceed.

Easy and fun to create...

You can register if you like to save your Simpson Avatars and even create a DVD case with your Simpson self ~or~ Save by clicking on down arrow icon, then selecting jpg file. Saves to download file. I saved to my Pictures file for easy access. I also chose to create just a headshot by using Print Screen, opening in MS paint and cropping.

OK, it's a Bank., but they are cute, Share on FaceBook, Twitter, bookmarking, blogs and more.

You can also submit your likeness creation for a future Ad campaign. :D

The only downloads available are for sharing on social sites, or you can save by registering your email address and Lloyd's will send you a link to edit your character further. but I liked my "Me" so much that I took a screen shot (print screen) and cropped it in MS Windows Paint. I chose to use the whole body with character name, but very well could have cropped it to appear as just a head shot, too.

Oh... I didn't find this. They found me and wrote me a note here on this article.

Wow, I feel like a star. :D

SoyCandleLover-Makers Mii Avatar

Mii, Oui! ...or Wii.

Create your own "Mii", the avatars characteristic of the Nintendo Wii.

Simplistic, but maybe the popularity of Wii has given this avatar maker a boost.

Several options to save, but I just used Export to save as an avatar.

I still use this Wii Mii avatar, but just for bowling, golfing and other Wii games.

For a more profession avatar... SitePal

I probably won't be using this since it's fee-based and starts at $9.95 to get this avatar on trial, but it looks good if you have the need and resources.

      This is great. I enjoyed seeing the evolution of your avatars. It seems the choices are limitless these days. I may have to jazz up my current avatar. My renaissance "Mona" is looking a bit dated (but then she is what... 532 years old?). She's holding up pretty well, I'd say. ;-)

      I have often thought about using an avatar but as of yet have not got round to it. We have always had a logo, mainly to promote our business as it can be quite recognisable and partly because we are both a bit shy. I think we might build an avatar, these are brilliant. Great lens.

      This is a cool lens - I used to use an avatar, but last year I started using this photo instead on some of my online social networks. Have you seen Gravatar? I see it listed on blogs often. I believe it's an online avatar that will work across several platforms.5* a fav and a fan!

      [in reply to BevsPaper] Thanks! Gotta ask tho... did you use a cartoon avatar maker? If so could you share? I'd love to add it to the ranks with credit to the maker and reference to you. :D
