So I've been interested in various projects that involve creating a non-existent person by blending together people's faces, creating a sort of "child". Well, I have a program to do it, and I was thinking we should get together and make a Face of GW. I'll be collecting photos of everyone and then pairing them, creating mixtures of each, and working through all the pairings until we have a conglomeration of all the submitters. There are limitations of course, not everyone will have a camera or have the capacity to post their picture, nor will everyone feel comfortable posting their photo. So we won't have a "true" face of gw, but we can acknowledge these limitations and do the best we can.

I've uploaded a template so that it would make it easier for me to match all the faces. Try to keep plenty of padding around your face and send the photo in a fairly high resolution, maybe a little bit smaller than the raw image that most camera give out.
Requirements:
- You must be looking straight ahead
- No glasses
- No hair in front of your face (bangs and whatnot)
- Don't slouch
- Its important to be facing straight so that both ears are in view (or should be in view, ie hair hiding them or whatnot)

Please be aware of lighting conditions and try to get a picture of yourself against a white or a solid wall. You may post the picture here or pm the picture to me. I'm hoping to hit 20 pictures and so I'll keep submissions open for awhile. For lighting, it should be taken either outdoors but without direct sunlight (under an awning or something) or indoors with the best ambient lighting you can get. I can color correct most pictures but I can't control big glaring spots on your forehead, but do the best you can do.

This sounds like an awesome idea. I'm about to hit the sack, so I'll try to do something tomorrow.

I have no idea how to my work my face into that thing so here's my ugly mug.  I'm sure you can crop and tweak it however you need it to go.

I appreciate your photo, but if you can, can you retake it? These have to be full frontal.

Eh, that rules me out because I took this camera months ago and I lost my camera since. 

Until I find a new camera, enjoy my mug.

No glasses, what will happen is, when I'm combining faces, it'll leave a slight rim around the combined face.

okay here it is I didn't take a shower so I got bed hair still or really do anything (working off a hangover) so I dont look good at all but I figure you want RAW FACE.

Just to give everyone an idea of how the proportions should work, I've formatted dangerousned's picture to the template. This should give a good idea of how large your face should be in proportion to everything else. I don't need hyper-close ups and as long as the picture is sent fairly high-rez I can crop it down, which easier than having to pull out things that don't exist. Also, since I sometimes forget that not everyone has photoshop. I can crop and size your images for you, so don't worry about the template so much that you should remember to have some padding around your face.

@dangerousned: Your picture is fine since the project doesn't really care for whats outside of the face, one or two undercropped images are fine.

oh sorry dude i wasn't sure if you'd want it so I didn't resize!

also shit my eyes are TILTED slightly because my head is off should I retake or will it matter.

edit: actually you can just rotate it to match if that's an issue I guess.

No, its great you left it at a higher resolution, gives me more elbow room. The tilting isn't an issue since it'll smooth out during the process.

I was practicing for the face and I think I've gotten some good thoughts for the final. I've tried it with four faces and it surprisingly looks like Cray. I've also updated the first post with some photo requirements that I thought would be helpful after testing.

Also, a list of faces I've accepted (the other picture's qualities make them unusable, sorry webcam people :<):
-Dangerousned
-DarkPriest
- Myself
- My sister

Well, here... Nothing I can do about the background though, it's perfectly fitted to the template and I'm hoping you got some mildly decent cropping tools.

fyi blindmind totally posted the picture of me hungover like twenty times as if it was some insult and then when he posted his picture after being goaded into it, it was of some really slim girl man with his face buried in the pillow as if he had been crying so I think you can count him out medieve.
