Yes, changing the color hue might be a great way to increase number of combinations! Again, you don't have to use Java. Especially if you want to use the images in your own project, you might be better off rolling your own avatar generator/renderer. For the renderer simply render the different image on top of each other:

 1. render background (+background pattern) - can be hue adjusted
 2. render the head graphic
 3. render mouth, eyes, facial hair, hair etc.
 4. render accessories

regarding FAQ (on and license: I fixed the FAQ (sorry forgot to update it to state it is now open source). So, yes, you can create your own avatar generator. You don't have to contribute back although but if you do so it would definitely be appreciated. I personally don't care much what you do with it; it's open source so I don't want to pose limits on what you make out of it. I'd like to be mentioned in the credits (hence the license CC-BY) but I won't sue you if you forgot/don't. Also, Liea did an excellent job creating the avatar components when I contracted her back in the days so I would think to credit her also would definitely be great! :)

Thanks :)

@twodayslate: don't worry, you don't need to use Java. I attached the source code simply for reference if someone is having trouble creating a generator. I personally think it's probably easier for everyone to roll their own code and use the images (PNGs + PSD) provided only (just ignore the source code)! :-D
