Hello fellow authors :)

I have a question.  Do any of you know where to find a website or computer program to help me make an image of my characters [preferably free]?  All of them are human, so I don't need anything complicated for different species.

I've used some computer games where you can make your characters look certain ways and tried that, but they just don't have the range I'm looking for.  I usually draw my characters, but I'd like to see them looking better and with a different style. 

Just anything that you can alter how they look [height, hair, face, skin, etc] would be great.

Any suggestions?

Thanks :)

Not that I have seen. But I have found photos and photoshopped them abit to fit what I needed.  I've even made Sims to look like my characters but yes that is still limited.  Drawing is by far the best way, or even getting someone else to redraw things for you.

Sometimes those" baby will look like this" web sites can help if you find two pics that are similar to your characters looks.
