tiger woods gameface

I thought this fell somewhere in the realm of caricature. In Tiger Woods 2008 for Xbox 360 you can upload an actual photo of yourself to their server online. This then connects to Xbox live, then you set a couple of guideline points on your face. I uploaded a front and side view (not shown). The game then generates an image of you which you can use in the game. It took a while, but the end result came out really great. A bald video game version of me which you then have to manually pick your hair and outfit. It really depends what angle the golfer is shown, sometimes it is a dead on look-a-like, and sometimes not. Pretty cool.
