You can tell how a person is by just looking at their avatar?
Depending on the context, the meaning of an avatar can greatly vary. Originally it meant the flesh incarnation of a deity. But we will be talking about the modern term of avatar, in the age of the internet.
An avatar can be many things since it’s a projection of yourself. In online games, your custom cartoon character is your avatar. But here we’ll be referring to a specific type of online avatar a.k.a. the little picture next to your comment, the one you use in websites, forums.
Extrovert personalities have more colorful, silly pictures of themselves, not really caring about the quality of the image that much, which further emphasizes their carefree nature. By showing their face it helps to connect with other people. On the other hand, there are some who prefer not to show themselves so they opt instead to use a cute animal or anything else, like a cartoon avatar or an object. These users are usually more insecure about their appearance, or just don’t want to show the world their face, creating a barrier. This is more common for introverted people they turn themselves into a cartoon.
Everybody wants to be unique and wants to project some kind of trait using this small little image. To achieve this, they use an image of a celebrity, or a character from their favorite TV show, or movie. These characters usually represent a trait they want to be associated with. For example, they may use an unyielding hero, or a clever villain the choices are endless.
These types of avatars are not limited to real-life action only, these can be cartoon avatars of yourself as well.
While the choices in this category are plenty, these kinds of avatars tend to be less unique, since they are usually popular movies or cartoon characters so they don’t really stand out.
Some go a step further by using custom avatars. These may be self-made by a free online avatar generator. With the help of these generators, users can cartoon themselves and create cartoon avatars that have resembling features. The problem with generators is that the characters are usually pretty simple/low quality and overall generic. For anyone who’s not satisfied with this, there is an alternative. There are plenty of illustrators offering their service to create a custom cartoon portrait from a photo. These are not free, but there is a clear difference in quality.
Professionally made custom cartoon avatar are appealing for both extroverts and introverts as well. They combine traits that are perfect for any user. There are many style choices available, they are fun to look at, memorable since they are unique, they resemble their owner and help create connection, but not at the cost of privacy. With these in mind, custom avatars are popular among all kinds of people.
Avatars have an implication in more business-related things as well. If you don’t change your cartoon self-portrait for a long time it can become a part of your branding, an image based on which you and your brand are recognized. If this is the case changing your custom avatar will have a negative impact on your brand, therefore be careful what you choose because you might be stuck with your avatar forever. A great example of this are YouTubers. Their avatars are iconic and once they become popular mostly static. Many use custom cartoon avatars, reminiscent of their old content, but can’t change it since it is part of their brand, it’s their logo.
