    im hoping you've seen that one, because thats the most basic and easiest tutorial that has very good end results, if your worried your avatars going to look like everyone else's than just open up photoshop and play around

    plenty of ways to do it.. easiest would be to magic wand tool the black part, copy paste that onto your base, and resize it to look right (ctrl t, hold shift)
