Abstract

Systems, methods, and computer media for generating an avatar reflecting a player's current appearance. Data describing the player's current appearance is received. The data includes a visible spectrum image of the player, a depth image including both the player and a current background, and skeletal data for the player. The skeletal data indicates an outline of the player's skeleton. Based at least in part on the received data, one or more of the following are captured: a facial appearance of the player; a hair appearance of the player; a clothing appearance of the player; and a skin color of the player. A 3D avatar resembling the player is generated by combining the captured facial appearance, hair appearance, clothing appearance, and/or skin color with predetermined avatar features.
