Messenger clients and forums offer ways for you to personalize your profile with an image representing your personality. While creating an image from graphics related to your favorite movie or cartoon character is an easy way to pledge allegiance to a personally identifying subculture, making something unique is infinitely more representative. Portrait Illustration Maker offers a fully customizable way to build your own illustrated icon. Choose from dozens of configuration options for facial features, hair styles, accessories, and hand gestures (nothing offensive). Illustration styles range from comic book to anime. If you need an avatar for the MediaBlab forum, this is a great place to create your own.
