Okay, here’s an insight into how my mind works.
I set up WordPress this afternoon. All good. One of the first things I did was install Wavatars. Cool. They look aweso-tasta-riffic.
Then I read Shamus’ post on how Wavatars are generated. And my first thought was… it’d be really easy to make custom artwork for that. Then my site’s Wavvies would have their own unique feel.
My, wouldn’t that be a productive way to spend an entire evening.
So now, thanks to my obsessive nature, this site has funky custom Wavatar art. The new Wavvies have the same general characteristics as the original art, so you’ll still recognise your face, but it has more of a freehand feel to it. For example, compare my Wavatar on Shamus’ site with the new one on my site:
I haven’t done extensive testing on how well the eyes and stuff line up, but I figure that’ll all come out in the wash.
If there’s any demand for it I can make the new art public. However, I kind of have a dream where every site with Wavatars does their own custom look and feel that matches the rest of the site. I realise that not everyone is insane enough to put in that amount of work… but hey, I can still dream.55 comments
