Admiral Ackbar?!: NBA 2K15 Face Scan Feature Gone Horribly Wrong

nba-face-scan-fails-1.jpg This is a series of photos of people who tried to use NBA 2K15’s new face-scan feature to put their own face on a player in the game, with disastrous results. I’m not sure if they didn’t follow the directions, or if the system is flaw ed. I’m leaning towards a combination. What’s your favorite combination? Mine’s gluing a microwaveable burrito to a piece of pizza with nacho cheese. My buddy Terry invented it. I’m going to sue him when I have a heart attack. Keep going for several more examples, the next of which looks like somebody tried scanning a medieval knight’s helmet. Also, I sliced my thumb to the bone on a broken mason jar at lunch so if I disappear this afternoon I went to the doctor because it really doesn’t want to stop bleeding no matter how much superglue I pour into it.

STOP STARING: Ultra Realistic Computer Generated Face

computer-graphics-face.jpg This is Ed, a super realistic face digitally rendered using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita by Australian artist Chris Jones. I say super realistic, but you can easily tell it’s fake because it’s just a floating head — there’s no body. Nice try, but that’s a dead giveaway, Chris. Keep going for a demo of the face and a BONUS eyeball-only version.

You’re A Rainbow!: Macro Shot Of A Hummingbird’s Face

This is the macro shot of a Green-Crowned Brilliant Hummingbird’s face taken by photographer Chris Morgan while on vacation at the Bosque De Paz biological reserve in Costa Rica. You know, Mother Nature — sometimes you are alright. I mean it’s RARE, but when you do, it almost seems to make up for all the other horrible, horrible shit you do. I’ll tell you what — let’s call a truce this weekend. You promise I won’t find any spiders in my bedroom, and I won’t do anything bad for the environment. “Wait — are you burning car tires?” Haha, I had my fingers crossed you filthy forest nymph! Thanks to Carlo, who informed me hummingbirds are his fourth favorite kind of bird behind owls, eagles and falcons. Good information to know.
