avatarcore - Generic framework for describing and displaying avatar characters The Avatar Core framework is used to construct and display avatar characters from individual avatar assets (eyes, nose, mouth, etc.) and, typically, an XML descriptor file describing their relationships. The framework supports the use of libraries for predefined selections of interchangeable characteristics, each of which whose graphical assets can be either defined within the hosted client application or loaded in dynamically at runtime. The XML descriptors make it easy to load, edit, and save avatar definitions to be used at a later time. The current implementation is done in ActionScript targeting Adobe's Flash Player. Additional details regarding the framework is discussed in the Introduction section. For more information on how to get started with Avatar Core, see GettingStarted.

Infographic Tools If you’re anything like me, you learned how to use programs like Photoshop and Gimp out of necessity to do minor changes to photos. You might have even dabbled in some easier graphic design projects for your own website, but it takes you hours to get the image or the design looking just right and you’re left exhausted. You might even spend time looking up tutorials on how to achieve a certain effect and still have trouble re-creating it. In short, while you do know your way around the programs like Photoshop to a certain extent, it takes you forever and there’s absolutely no way you’d call yourself a graphic designer. But then, you’re surfing around the web and you noticed some really cool infographics on things like fashion, music and food and you can’t help but wish that you could create something like that; even if it’d take you a week.

**ORIGINAL**FAILS**Flame Painter Free Flame Painter is a unique paint program, it belongs to my 'I am an Artist' experimental project. I think with tools which inspires you, everyone can be an artist. You can try it here, change different brush settings and paint your own flame paintings. When you change the background from black to white, the palette changes from additive to subtractive and the feeling of the painting is very different. It's not easy to explain all brush parameters, so I leave this for your experimentation.
