I find this an easy way to produce an avatar rather than going through making it from scratch and this way it matches your main tag perfectly. 

1. Shift D your main tag. 

2. Grab your crop tool and choose which side of the tag you want to use. I went for the right side. 

3. Get your length to 180 and your width to 150 then click crop and your left with your avatar. 

4. Delete any layers that are not in the Avatar. 

5. Add a new layer, Selections Modify and Contrast by 3. Invert and Floodfill with #2e4bfa. Selections None.

6. Selectoins Modify and Contrast by 1, Invert and Floodfill with #ba0254. Selections none.

7. Add your Copyright and Your name then Save as a PNG.

Thats it we're done hope you found this easy to follow, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
