I thought the consensus was that symmetrical faces look lifeless/robotic, and push toward the uncanny valley. Faces are asymmetrical and that's part of what gives them life and charm!


left to right: mirrored from left half of face - original - mirrored from right half of face

Not that he is the most attractive human specimen by any stretch of the imagination :P but the only one that doesn't creep me out, personally, is the center, original face.

And this is coming from somebody that LOVES to abuse ProMotion's symmetry paint tools, haha

Symmetrical faces are more attractive. Of course not robotically symmetrical ones, but stuff like crooked noses or wonky eyes lowers the attractiveness usually. Tho I do agree that slight wonk can add a lot of charm.

Here is one of the same dude you posted where they made a more natural symmetrical version of him on the right. And it does look more attractive.



I undertook a small experiment and averaged some of my pixelfaces using the faceresearch.org website.

These to be exact


The outcome is better than I anticipated

I'd like to see this with some of your fruit people. Or maybe even the robots.


I agree with the slight wonk being charming. Every girl I've been with has had one! I'm just a collector of girls with slight wonks.

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

Actually there are tons of white people here in SA. I am white and live near Cape Town. It's much more mixed than is seen, I'm sure, from the outside. The British and dutch have established colonies here way back around since the 1700s around the coast (on trading routes to the east) and integrated with the locals since (the "boerewar" was actually when the British came to claim the diamonds in SA and the by-then-pure-local white farmers ("boere") fought them back. My family, for example, originates in France. My first language is one originating from Netherlands. (The call South Africa the Europe of Africa)

There are many many many beautiful white girls here :), in that picture she looks very local actually.

I like the greek one the most.

I don't have enough fruit people and I don't think it would work with the robots given that you have to set reference points based on humans. And some of the robots do have more or less eyes than humans, no proper necks, weird headshapes, no proper jaws and so on. It would just look weird.

BROSEPHS, LISTEN UP.

I mean literally, the newest Ubiktune release is like the coolest thing to hit the streets since the boom box! Pure FM goodness with 'funkiness' as a main requirement. I'm halfway into the album and I'm digging so hard.

also song no. 6 "Ignition, Set, GO!" by Bomb Boy is by me <3 * W *

High quality stuff for sure. You really did #6? It's definitely one of the best on the album. Great job on it.

Only thing I don't like is that stupid cover. What the crap is going on there?? That is NOT funky.
