Lucy and Bart : flash-based transmogrification.

Lurt (Bacy?) is more attractive than either Lucy or Bart. Other than that, is there something I should be getting from this?

seriously, I'm asking

As a self-identifying hetero (YMMV) I'd find a surprisingly large tranche of the images attractive if it wasn't for the irruptive facial hair, which screws up even the 'most feminine' end of the spectrum.

The Blog is more interesting.

is it wrong that I just want to have Bart's cheekbones? I don't mean in a jar, or anything...just grafted into my facial structure, somehow.

damn Euro-mutt heritage of mine...

Lucy has more hair on her upper lip than Bart.

When I read the post, I thought "Lucy van Pelt and Bart Simpson".

Yeah, CG, that was my hope too.

I can't quit staring at her ears; her left one is riding pretty low. Yikes, now I'm wondering if mine do that, too. This post makes me feel unattractive. Thanks.

Hell, I'd fuck 'em both.

Found myself wishing they'd used the y axis as well; maybe age? Emotional state? symmetry? Otherwise, seems kinda shallow.

Given the rest of the hair, I'd favour human/wolf.

Morphing disturbs me. Especially smooth morphing.

I was really hoping I could go further left or right and make them more bart-or-lucy-er..

Long ago, I had an image manipulation program that did this. I think it may have been called "Morph"... It used anchor points that were paired between the two images, so you'd mark the centers of the eyes, tip of the nose, cheekbones, and so on, and it would compile a little movie with each point moving from its start location to the corresponding end location, shifting color and pushing the surrounding image with it as it went. If you spent the time to fill in a very large and detailed number of points, you'd end up with morphs that were just as good as this one. Took a ton of adjusting and tweaking, though. Move slowly from Bart to Lucy, and watch the lower eyelashes of the eye on the right-- you can see where they didn't catch the arc of the lower eyelid right, and it sort of tears. (as in rip, not cry)

Anyway, I spent a ton of time playing with with that software. That was something like twenty years ago. (20? jesus shit where'd the time go) Anyone know of a modern version available?

If you wiggle your cursor back and forth over the nose it looks like an androgynous individual speed-chewing a mouthful of gum.
