Creating or Uploading Your Own Avatar
It is now possible to create and upload your own avatar using the Somnium Space avatar SDK. This nifty piece of tech allows anyone to create their own custom avatar, or upload an existing avatar straight into Somnium, permitting users to express themselves in a way which isn’t tied to just being one generic size, shape, or even human.
To create your own avatar, you can use the easy to follow video guide on this page, or access the SDK document for avatars available here.
