You can customise your character in a number of ways. Either draw the character’s body
using Apple Pencil, stylus, or your finger. Alternatively you can find pictures for free from sites such as pixabay.com. If you are using other apps such as PowerPoint or Slides it is important to ensure that your background is set as transparent. Export as images and save to your photos app.
