Simpsonize Me, We World and YoMe offer examples of the many styles of cartooning and animation available online. If you want to design a cartoon character based on a favorite show, for example, look for a service that offers you the opportunity to design characters for free, subject to copyright and content restrictions. One popular site is South Park Studios from the creators of the long-running “South Park” cartoon series. After creating a free account, log on to the site, and open the “Avatar Creator” to choose skin tones, hairdos, clothes and accessories. Save your character to a gallery or email it to yourself to use as an online avatar.

Androidify.com also allows you to design characters for free. Figures are based on Google’s green Android logo, and like other avatar generators, Androidify offers you a choice of skin tone, expression, hair style and color. You also have the option to create a gallery and submit your designs for online viewing or sharing. No account is necessary to use Androidify on a computer, and the service offers an app for smartphones and tablets.
