You haven't drawn anything in a YEAR?? How is that possible? I would lose my identity and have a crisis.

I officially dislike my local arts and crafts store.  I go shopping there today for some square beads.  they have a huge beads section.  Are the beads organized by size?  by color?  by shape?  Any of these would be reasonable.  Instead it is organized by manufacturer.  This makes it easy for the clerks to restock, but a pain in the butt to find what you want and compare different packages.  Grrr.

But to contribute something positive to the thread instead of just ranting, ran across this today:  http://pics.kuvaton.com/kuvei/average_faces.jpg  It is a large image with average female faces from different parts of the globe.  Only females, and only front view, but it might be useful for people making portraits.

The Russian generic girl face keeps popping out as more attractive than the others for me - maybe it's because over half of them look like they're vertically squashed 40% more than they ought to be.

I dunno, Polish and Greek are rankin' pretty high. South African is caucasian? Yer right, many are squashed. And what's with the odd fading/blurring.

Seen that image around, wonder where they got the data. It does seem a bit silly that Ms South Africa is white.

Wales and Peru are clearly the prettiest.

The symmetrical Simoan is creepy.

The fading/blurring is because they gather a bunch of pictures of women and using some technology from the future they combine the girls to create an average face. I did this with my office a while back and the result look like a female version of me.


I was in love.

isn't symmetry in the face meant to be more attractive?

Anyway, i'm liking the Israeli, Greek, Peruvian and the Spaniard.
Think it's time to move to one of these countries haha.
