Face Transformer

This site gives you an opportunity to transform your face in a variety of ways (ethnicity, age progression/regression, artistic rendition by great painters, etc.). Below is the gallery of my face created from the site.

The last three photos were an experiment. I used a photo of myself as a child to see how accurate it was on how I would look now, as an adult, and later, as an old man. I also think I’d make a kickass anime character.

Manahatta: (NYC Subway Map v. 1937 Buffalo Nickel)

Every time I look at the MTA’s system map, I always see a Native American’s face in profile: Manhattan is the stately bridge of the nose, Riker’s Island is the gleaming eye, and even the Rockaways are a feathered headdress. Partially because of this physiognomy, but more due to its sartorial charm, I presume it looks the most like Sioux, Crow— probably the ethnicity of my great-grandfather on my mother’s side—Blackfeet, Cheyenne, or Plains Cree.
