hen I first saw the 3D cartoon avatar that appeared on my Facebook feed, my eyes goes wide open. It was my school friend, but super glowing 3D face, supersize eyes filled with emotions “Which app is this?” I asked him, instantly needing to know. He told me: Voila AI Artist.
There’s something about those avatars I find attractive, from the very first Yahoo Messenger avatar I ever used, to Facebook avatar. At any rate, it took less than five minutes to download Voila AI Artist and make my first 3D cartoon grid. I also learned a few things along the way. Here’s how to do it and what to know.
How to make your cartoon avatar using Voila AI Artist
Step1: Download Voila AI Artist for Android or IOS and simply open the app. It will ask for permissions, simply allow them.
Step2: Select 3D cartoon among the four options: 3D Cartoon, Renaissance, 2D Cartoon and Caricature. Tap the arrow to begin.
Step 3: Your gallery is now open. Select the photo you want to edit, or tap on Camera or Celebrities at the bottom of the screen to take a new picture or to search for celebrities. After selecting the image, it generates a grid of four options. On the free version, you can get advertisements. Just ignore them.
Step 4: You’ll see four options — the composite 2×2 grid of your original photo in addition with your three cartoon renderings that are Royalty 3D, Baby 3D and Cartoon 3D. You can either take a screenshot from here and crop it down, or select any of the four options and click the upload like button (an up arrow on Android) to immediately share on Facebook, Instagram or WhatsApp, or to email, save or share through other options (when you press More).
If you want to remove the watermark, speed up the rendering process and remove the ads you see each time you render, you can upgrade to its pro version.
