Will the Real Jill Please Stand up?

The challenge in the flickr-BINGO group this week was Warped Anime Self Portrait; I had no idea what that meant or how to do it, and I am really not into self portraits, so I thought I would pass on this week’s challenge (I didn’t have that number on my bingo card anyway.)

But on a rainy Sunday afternoon with time to kill, I started poking around in Photoshop filters and seeing what the other group members had come up with. I went to this web site to "transform" me:


kinda scary results ! Give it a try – you will be amazed!

1. IMG_9625 test, 2. IMG_9625 Mucha, 3. IMG_9625 Modigiliani, 4. IMG_9625 Masculine, 5. IMG_9625 Manga Cartoon, 6. IMG_9625 East Asian, 7. IMG_9625 Caucasian, 8. IMG_9625 Botticelli, 9. IMG_9625 Ape

Created with fd’s Flickr Toys

The real image is from a black tie event we attended last weekend; Santa Clara University Golden Circle Annual Gala Dinner Dance.

    And here’s what I came up with in Photoshop after smoothing out wrinkles and laugh lines and forehead creases and age spots, blurring, filtering, posterings, warping, so many filters applied that I lost track of them…. yet there’s still a vague resemblance to the real deal….

  • mag3737 said:

    very cool. the manga version of you came out much manga-looking-er than my face did with that gadget. my fave of you is the modigliani, though.

  • AZTransplant/Nicki said:

    I’d need a lot of different filters to try to mask all my flaws for sure! Nice collage. Glad you were brave enough to have some fun with it. Glad it was a rainy day so we got to see the many faces of Jill. :-)

  • Houry Photography -on/off said:

  • Kaptain Kobold said:

    The anime and Botticelli look great. But my favourite effect is the ape one; I still enjoy running pictures through that, even if I don’t always share the results :)

  • Kiki FL said:

    Well, aren’t you lovely! …the real you, that is. You got some interesting effects; some good, some not so much…I think I’d stick with the real thing.

  • ange.h said:

    This is fantastic work, Jill! I really like 2 and 8 (clockwise), and nothing could spoil your good looks, except maybe that last edition mixing you with Dr. Zira.
