Hello Everyone! Today I will show you how to make a simple avatar! It's pretty easy and I made it step by step for all of the Photoshop beginners. Before I begin I will like to say that there's more ways to do them, but the most easy way is the following. This will come in handy to make other things, not just avatars so get ready to learn something new! ---------STEP BY STEP--------- STEP 1. Open up Photoshop and create a new document: Input these settings: STEP 2. Now that you have your new document make a new layer. (Shift + Ctrl + N) and name it whatever, default is "Layer 1". STEP 3. Now you have your new layer let's get on with the avatar shall we? Simply go to the tools you have on the left side, Select "Rounded Rectangle Tool". You'll also noticed that the top bar will change, forget all of it, just focus on "Radius" and input "18 px" or whatever you choose to. STEP 4. Go to your document and simply draw a rounded rectangle from in the center of your blank layer, not the background. Once you draw it right click and select "make selection" and input the following: STEP 5. With your selection just head over to the paint tool and with any color paint over the selection, it will give you something like this: STEP 6. Deselect and double click on the "Layer 1" layer, it should bring up a new box. Go directly to "Gradient Overlay" and select the colors of your choice. Now go to "Stroke" to create a stroke, choose the color and set it to only 1 px. It should be about the same as the color you chose earlier. STEP 7. The fun starts, you have the basic structure of it. Next we would like to put a basic symbol, this is for our beginners. Chose anyone, I prefer you to paint it white. Note: Make the symbol on a new layer, just to fix it later. You can double click on the layer to tweak it and make changes in color as well as give it a stroke.
