Subby, they don't all look the same. You can definitely tell which is Quasimodo.

Hai Gaiz I ran Disney characters through an algorithm and came up with computer generated faces.

I used an algorithm so its all high tech.

mongbiohazard: Sup Jasmine, how you doin'?


Yeah, as usual Jasmine is still the hottest, although the pics they came up with for Mulan and Pocahontas look pretty good too.

At first glance, I agreed with subby.

After about a minute's study, subby is an idiot.  There is quite a lot of diversity among those pictures.  Mulan is the easiest to catch, but the other variations come quite readily.

Human faces are quite predictable until you look at the details.

Why didn't the "Artist" just go to Disney World. I think the cast members signing autographs and posing for pictures are pretty much exactly what the cartoons looked like.

I don't even.

This is Mulan:

Her name is Ming Na Wen.

Here she is younger:

As Chun Li in Street Fighter, no less.

And from the Joy Luck Club:

What, exactly, is wrong with just using her to show what Mulan would look like? She's beautiful.

And here she is now. Agent May, Agents of SHIELD.

I call BS that she is 50, and there is no way that I am going to Google her and find out how wrong you actually are. None. You are not gonna ruin it.
 
2014-01-16 01:08:29 AM  
I don't understand subby's 'complaint' here. "Oh disney characters all look photoshopped" as if you could expect anything other than even skin tones and symmetric facial features from a cartoon. Of course they're going to look photoshopped, their faces are minimalist so there aren't a lot of features to translate. There's only so much variation you can get out of that as well, and I think they've done well differentiating their characters, especially considering that they have a disproportionate amount of white characters who still don't all look identical.

Asian women do not age until after menopause, at which point they turn into Kim Jong-Il, and then shrivel up over the next 20 years. There's a very helpful diagram somewhere on the internet but I'm too lazy to look it up.

You could also have gone with Lea Salonga, also the actual Mulan. (Lea was the singing voice, Ming the talking voice). Only 42, per wikipedia. Also the singing voice of Jasmine.

Filipino, so not perfectly representative for either part.

Perhaps better known for Eponine in Les Mis though:

She's also done Fantine, originated Kim in Miss Saigon (winning a Tony), ect. She's had a pretty decent career.
