Here is how to make a MC Cartoon avatar just like mine! Well, except it will be your skin of course! Here is a list of things you are going to need:
  1. SAI Paintool
  2. The ability to type
  3. Previous graphical experience ( you do NOT need much experience to do this!)

Just follow the screen shots and you will be fine! ALSO: Copy and Paste links!
  1. Download SAI from the link here! Then extract it. LINKS:

   Other:  http://www.mediafire.com/download/wj145s702nh27zt/SAI.rar
  1. Go to http://signaturecraft.us/
  2. Click on Create a Character Avatar.4. Type in you MC username, have the size be 250x250 pixels, and keep the option on “Face (Default)”. Then click generate avatar.

5. Right click and save as a png. Make sure to save to your desktop!

6. Now you are going to open up SAI. Once SAI is open, click on file-Open. Select your face from there! TIP: Make sure you saved your face to your desktop. If you did not thats ok! Just drag it onto your desktop!

7. Now, you are going to create a new linework layer. Not a normal layer, LINEWORK. This will make creating your avatar much MUCH easier!  

8. Start with your hair. Select Line and click size 5. Simple drag and drop your line to fit the outline of your hair. Make sure it is a STRAIGHT LINE! We will edit these lines next. TIP: You deselect by either double clicking or option+shift+D.

9. Now we will edit those ugly (but important) lines. Select the Edit tool and start editing! All you need to do is click and drag. No need to deselect because when you let go you stop dragging!

10. Now, you need to fill out the rest of your skin. Make sure everything looks the way you want. I will show you how to make extra details not on your skin after this step.

11. Now we can add some extra features to really bring your face to life! Make a size 2 line wear a mouth would be. Edit and curve it until it looks happy. Then seal it off with a connecting line. Use a size 1 to make the teeth mark.

12. Now for the nose! This is really easy. All you need to do is select a size 2 line and make a nose sized line. Then edit it. See that eye on the skin face layer? Click that. BAM! You no longer see your skin!

13. Now we have all of our extra details added! You can add mustaches, unibrows etc. If you want.

14. Now we are going to color in yourself. First, make a new NORMAL Layer. Then, hold and drag the layer underneath.

15. Now select the  tool and click inside your hair. Make sure there are no white spots left. When you are done it should be purple.

16. Now, simple select the color that you want your hair to be using the color pallet selector. But before coloring, click on pressure and go to the normal layer.

17. Now just repeat step 16 for the rest of your face.
That is the end of this tutorial! I hope this was helpful and that you enjoyed! If you liked this throw a diamond at my face! Love it? Show it to someone who would also like to throw a diamond at me face!
