Create a Powerful Face Generator With Blender’s Grease Pencil

Computer Graphics Artist Jimmy Gunawan, also know as BlenderSushi, walks through a little experiment of his — Creating a powerful cartoon face generator using Blender’s grease pencil tool along with Animation nodes.

Combining the power of Blender’s Grease Pencil feature and Animation Nodes add-on, we can have a powerful and unlimited cartoony face generator in Blender.

The idea is to create a cartoonish generator where you can mix and match face parts into a brand new face. The system combines the power Blender’s grease Pencil tool with the Animation Nodes add-on, offering unlimited cartoon style face generator right in Blender.

Jimmy says that he was inspired by old card games he used to play as a kid, where combined cards could come up with a lot of variations of a face, by separating out eyes, noses, mouths and eyebrows. The face generator will be able to randomize items in a Dope Sheet for Grease Pencil. This way, you could assign and make variations based on few elements or features of face.
