I think I’m the last one to the party with iMadeFace. Last month, Roy Lichtenstein-style images were everywhere on Instagram. I still see them in my stream now and then. I finally downloaded the free app today and hey, it’s fun. I made this face — it’s an idealized version of what I think I should look like, like in my wildest dreams, with pink hair and all. The app has a great interface that makes it easy to change the shape of your face, your eyes, nose, eyebrows, and the color of your hair with a finger swipe. The overall effect is similar to the manga generator that was popular a while back — you know, the one that made everyone look like Sailor Moon??? The stylistic feature I like most about these images are the dark lines and the dotted textures — the kind of comic book effect that Roy Lichtenstein made popular as fine art. It’s pretty cool that I can make Lichtenstein-style portraits with my beloved iPhone. Sweet.
