I use firealpaca. Dw, it's for free, has alot of tools and brushes, and it's easy to get into it. I usually use 100x100 for avatars default. Sometimes if you want to use it as a avatar I resize it in another website (I usually use ezgif it's not only for gifs btw.) I never tried procreate before actually, but use anything that you're used to. Fox emoji - Christmas!

You can make them with any software you like. When I did pixel art, I made them with MSPaint. So yep, if you like Procreate, use Procreate. :nod:

Does it have to be pixelated?

Not at all! It can look anyway you wish :)
Just make sure the final file fits the requirements of the site it is to be used on.
I think these are still the ones for DA: https://www.deviantartsupport.com/en/article/how-do-i-upload-my-avatar-image

No problem; good luck! :D
Not specifically, no. Whenever I need one, I just crop one of my works into a square thing. XD

I use Sketchbook.
It is free and user friendly(easy to get used to at least for me)
It is suitable if you are aiming to create avatar/human faces whether it is simple or reallistic.
I too paint avatar/portrait there.You can check the result in my gallery.
If you would like to get advanced,maybe cracked photoshop or Clipstudio paint is an option.

It depends.
For portrait i usually set it on 1:1 or 1:2 scale on pixel.
For example 2000x2000 or 1500x3000 pixel.
For avatar or profile picture i recomend 1:1.
My standard for head shots are around 2k to 4k pixel because 2k below for me will make it look blurry,at least for semi realism.

No Problem!Also keep in mind that the mobile version of Sketchbook is different from the pc(i use both and the mobile have less features than the pc)
