Two o'clock in the morning is generally a good time to randomly surf the web and the blogs. This lovely lady, known to me only as Wow Legs, points the blogophere in general to this brilliant Manga face creator. Akin to the Simpsonize me Viral effort, this allows you to create a mangaesque face for yourself, using prefab elements that actually work. Hours of fun to be had here.
I think this might be how some tv cartoons are made, right down to the script, except that they don't possess the power of a handsome jawline.
Just to clarify:
This is Wow Legs manga avatar. Generally, I try not to mangafy people I haven't seen in real life. The picture above is something I threw together as a test.
UPDATE: I don't know what happened here, but my clarification seems to have caused more damage than good. As my editorial standards prevent me from knowingly misinforming you, I posted the clarification (above) to do exactly that and not mislead the reader. I also wanted to preserve the identity of my guide to mangavatarisation. Instead I seem to have hurt the feelings of the latter, for which I cannot but apologise, as that was the last thing I wanted to do. However I would like to understand the whys of things. So Wow, if you're reading this, do tell me what I did wrong.
MORE Update: This post has taken on a life of it's own in the comments, a very exploration of cultural differences and a true comedy of errors, misunderstandings and erroneous statements... Hence I am going to post this picture of me, with yet another new face, illustrating an indisputable stance towards the world.
Me, the unicorn plank.
