To choose the avatar colors you can send a list with the hex color codes:

colors = ['#000', '#111', '#222']
avinit.get_svg_avatar('Hello Word', colors=colors)

There is also support to generate PNG avatars (if installed with support):

avinit.get_png_avatar('Hello Word', output_file='/tmp/test.png')
