Face transformer

Brought to you by the venerable University of St. Andrews: the face transformer (http://morph.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk/Transformer/), an online thingy that lets you upload your photo and visualize your face aged, as painted by Modigliani, as someone of the opposite gender, etc. Here's a sampling of the results... I'd make one cute dude, if I do say so myself.
The original photo, as a man, as a Botticelli, and as Asian:
VF: Voilà un programme créé par les gentils geeks de l'Université de St. Andrews, un truc rigolo qui permet de manipuler sa photo et de se vieillir, se transformer en mec ou en Vénus Botticellienne. Voilà ce que ça donne sur moi - oué enfin moi ya 3-4 ans disons, on va dire que j'avais pas de photo récente de face ;-) Et ben je dis que moi en garçon, on dirait le fils de Patrick Juvet et Björn Ulvaeus (mais si, le blond qu'était dans Abba). Enfin je dis ça, je dis rien...

Illustration Friday: Poise

I don't think it shows too much, but I'm trying my hand at slightly different things... I wanted to try and paint faster and a bit more spontaneously than usual, so I drew this one directly on illustration board with acrylic, then did a bit of digital doodling. Usually I sketch and plan meticulously, and hardly do anything other than trim in Photoshop.I think I'll continue working on it, add more highlights on the face, and maybe redo the background to make the pattern stand out some more.

Anyway, I'm not sure if she's poised or just uncomfortable :)

Illustration Friday: Subtract

I made this for I.F.. I think I'll probably rework it, I'm not so happy about the contrasts; especially the stuffed animal's face, which blends too much in the background.

V.F.: Je viens de faire ça pour Illustration Friday, je suis à moitié contente du truc; les contrastes ne sont pas formidables, en particulier le visage de la peluche qui ne se détache pas bien du fond.
