Hey guys, I was wondering how are these images created and what are they called? are they SVG graphics?

    This should help you:

    (edit: open it in new tab and watch URL)

    Basically the numbers represent different options. Than you have some server side scripting that creates image based on these properties. You can use this link (its my avatar) and change up few numbers here and there, note down the results and here you go.

    Maybe its documented somewhere.

    Each object is its own layer, png, everything else is transparent. There is a render url, you pass in the individual layers and the renderer will combine them, respecting the z axis so everything overlaps correctly

    @GurvirBhogal some crazy fool made a whole lot of images in what I would assume is photoshop.

    Think of each element (desk, face, mouth, clothes, ect) as their own png

    Then you have a script that takes o the URL params and stitches it all together.

    @trogus would know the answers.

    Yup, lots and lots of layers in Illustrator vectors outputted as png layers combined together by a backend script when the avatar asset is requested, then cached
