    I have Photoshop cs4 but im pretty sure i cant make these type of cartoons with ease.

    There has to be some sort of professional software that has these type of shapes preset or if not, have the ability to be able to create such shapes with ease.

    Ive tried searching on google for cartoon software but all i have found so far are really dodgy unprofessional programs, they are only designed for kids.

    I downloaded Xara extreme pro a while back, havent installed it yet, it looks very good, even better than photoshop, but i think its going to have an even more bigger learning curve than PS.

    Do you guys know of any programs that creates these kind of cool avatar/cartoon images with ease, oh and do i have to mention that it needs a professional look too lol.

    With ease? Not sure, but its certainly possible with Adobe Illustrator or some comparable app.

    I used to put a lot of these types of cartoon logos on adult sites. A pretty talented artist I knew would draw the cartoon character I wanted, and then I would spruce it up in PS (sharpen, adjust levels, render diff effects, etc..). By then it would look pretty professional.

    These logos have nothing to do with software. It's not like they're dragging heads and smiles and hats off a palette to create a cartoon. Someone with skills is using photoshop and/or Illustrator. And possibly pencil and paper scanned in.
