To make an avatar, you just need to collect the images you want to use and composite them, then resize the composited gif or jpg to 150 x 150 pixels. You can use online imaging utilites like ImageMagick or gifworks, but most of the time I use Paintshop Pro for mine. Spider uses a really cool gifmaker... I'm not sure which program it is, but his avatars and sigs are awesome.
