According to most sources, the Police don’t often use real-life sketch artists anymore. Instead, they let computers do the doodling.
Grump found this cool Flash Face thingy a while back. I tried to draw myself this morning and wound up wasting a half an hour just playing around with the thing. Ooh, let’s try that nose. Ew! My ears aren’t that big! It’s like Mr. Potato Head does drawing.
But wait! There’s more! I found another sketchy thing.
At PoliceGuide, there is the Computerized Police Sketch Artist. Just answer a bunch of questions about the face you saw robbing the 7-11 last night and voila! Instant sketch. Try it yourself. It’s cool. heh heh heh.
