I had pulled multiple Xbox avatar pictures off of my console and my computer just to have. I really focused on having the avatar look like me. For this assignment I wanted to publically make that known. Taking a similar picture of myself as one of my avatar .jpgs was simple but editing it to have a blank background was way more difficult than I thought it was going to be. Rather I should say more time comsuming than anything. Worth the outcome I believe and at the very least this builds on my knowledge of some photo atlering software and this little project sparked ideas for the future.

Not quite a mirror…

So, for this assignment, I decided that I would add a couple layers and do it slightly different than the two people before me. They both used xbox avatars to complete the assignment, but it didn’t expressly say to do so. I started to make an avatar of myself elsewhere, …
