Dan - The South Park Character

I think I might have found an avatar to replace good ol' Calvin (as in, Calvin and Hobbes) that has served me well over the years. See, I've been wandering around the blog-sphere this afternoon - well, I was interrupted with watching Robots with Tam - trying to find something new to read. When you lot don't update, I get bored and must turn to overs to serve me.

Anyway, for every one blog I found worth reading, the other hundred were either in a different language (I speak English and Bad English) or mostly, were Splogs. Spam Blogs. Pain in the ass the number of them out there. I actually found just one blog worth reading, a new dad, new to kids, to parenting and everything else, and it is an amusing read, especially when I realise I was the same as he is now when Jaysen was born.

So anyway... While wandering around, I noticed one or two people had set up their avatars in the style of South Park. Love it or hate it, it's fame cannot be denied. I followed some links, and after much careful faffing around, I believe I have recreated myself in 2D.

Look at it with an open mind, and it is surprisingly accurate. Long, generally messy hair, hefty eyebrows, glasses, stupid smile, jacket, thick jumper, blue jeans.



Admit it, you're impressed ;) And if you want to do it to yourself, then you can! Go to the generator site here!

Yes yes, we all know I have too much time on my hands... I've done Jo already as well, but am going to leave that, see if she comes up with something similar ;)

Edit: OK, for those that don't know how to save their creation... When you are done, press the PRINT button on their keyboard - it's usually on the top row near the keypad. Nothing will happen when you press it. Now, open some art software - Paint, Paintshop Pro, Photoshop - whatever and either press CTRL-V, or go to Edit and select Paste. Trim the picture down, Save As, name it - job done!

Mac users - not a clue. I'm sure one of the Maccies that visit can help :)

EXCELLENT!

I've been wanting to change my profile picture for the longest time.

I'm. without shame, totally copying your idea.

Cartoon-Al, here I come.

hehe good luck with it Alan ;) Hope you're able to save the image as a screen shot and suchlike as there is no "Save" option. Screenshot, past into art software, and away you go!

Almost as easy as buying a Manbag...

Alan said...

Cheeky! No need for art software. I own a Mac, don'tca know.


Touche.

I made a couple - but "screenshot" is beyond my computer knowledge. Guess I will wait for the better half to return home. I think yours is an amazing likeness.

Good job, Dan! I looks just like you! Wait, aren't you already two-dimentional? :-/
