There are numerous methods and techniques for designing an avatar, and we'll explore the two primary approaches.

Online Editors

One of the most straightforward methods for designing avatars involves using online editors. These user-friendly interfaces are so intuitive that even children can navigate them with ease. Packed with essential features like brushes, spray tools, paint buckets, gradient tools, erasers, and more, these editors provide a comprehensive toolkit for the design process. While they typically impose size limitations, such as 64x64 or 128x128 pixels, these dimensions are more than sufficient for most cases. Additionally, the ability to toggle individual areas and layers streamlines the design process further. To kickstart the design process, we recommend using the editor. Simply follow the provided link, select the "Alex" model type, and you're ready to dive into the creative journey.

After achieving the desired result, simply click on "Download," and you're all set. You now have a ready-to-use texture that is ready to be inscribed.

Offline Editors

For those seeking a more advanced approach, feel free to use any graphics editor of your preference, ensuring it supports PNG image export. While there are no strict rules, it's beneficial to adhere to the Power of Two rule for textures, such as 64x64, 128x128, 256x256, 512x512, and 1024x1024. Although many game engines accommodate larger sizes, it's a best practice to keep textures lightweight for optimal accessibility across the metaverse.
