In this tutorial we are going to explain the way of creating simple user avatar icon for your website. Every website is having their own and unique user icons(ex: blogger and Flickr). It is really very simple to create a icon in Illustrator or Flash. I used Adobe Flash Software to create these icons. Get some reference or create your own draw/outline for your icon. Adding shadow, Light effect and different gradients are important for getting a professional looking icon. If you have used the same colour theme of your website, then it would be more beautiful.
