XKCD Character Creator

I made a little browser app where you can create custom xkcd characters:


Have fun, play around, and let me know what you think. :)

I'm thinking of this as an open source project. So, feel free to download my HTML and CSS files, download my Javascript code, download the images, modify it, improve it, etc.

Like it, so far. Noted that hats work Ok for 'body number five', except for the police cap (don't know if you can easily get around the positioning limitations for single items, without delving into the code so far written) and the glasses (to which you should could add 'half empty'?) aren't globally moved, or persuaded not to appear at all like all the other non-body bits don't (so far!) for that body.

(Every combination being possible would require a lot of finickity special-cases, don't know if you'd prefer to 'grey out' options not really possible as a simpler first action.)

So far, the rest seems to work, but that was the obvious set of outliers to test... ;)

Very nice, although the raptor needs some improvement yet.

Hmm, this turned out to be less recognisable, than I thought. Maybe if there was a fire reflecting off glasses1 option
