I had way too much fun with this...

Do you love South Park? Sure, we all do! Now you can design a South Park character based on you so you can see what you would look like if you hung out with Stan and Kyle and company!

It's a little tough to save your work - you have to do a screen capture of the page and then trim it down manually in Paint or Photoshop or something. But totally worth the effort.

Here's me!

I know not how to do this screen capture of which you speak, but my little character is awful cute.

To do a screen capture (on a PC at least) hit the "Print Screen" key (it's usually up above your numbers keypad on the right side of our keyboard).

Then, in your drawing application (Microsoft's "Paint" application is what I used - it's on every installation of Windows) open a new document and "paste". A copy of whatever was on your screen will be displayed as the image. You can now crop just the picture of your little character and save that as a graphics file.

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! what a brilliant site! My labmate and I just spent 30 minutes making characters for various people in the lab. I should have been working on my thesis talk or at least thesis, but this was much better

I look much more yellow on my home monitor than I did when I made my character on my laptop. Some how South Park me got jaundice on the way home from school.

Props to Sophist and TOWWAS for their adorable South Parkian selves, though!

Wait a second, Grrrbear. I see you wearing beige. where are your hip new clothes courtesy of your girlfriend's shopping savvy??

grrrbear said...

Oh that's not beige. That's "Mocha" - or as I call it "Brown".

There is a huge difference, according to the GF. I'm allowed to wear brown. Wearing beige would be punished with two hours in the stocks where I'd be pelted with stale fashions from 2004.

Didn't you have a brown jacket like that in college?

miss shirley said...

That was so much fun! Yay!

I totally had a brown jacket like that in college. In fact I had it well into the 21st century. Now I have a different brown jacket, but I don't wear it very often. Usually just when I am going out to a smoky bar where I don't want to stankify my good coat.

Wow! I have NOT been reading lately. Bad bad bad bad bad. This character looks SO much like you. I'm off to create myself...
