Toon Paint – Self Portrait Friday


I’m not planning on making this a series, but I happened to discover a pair of iPhone photo apps two weeks in a row that — as best as I am aware — are not already widely known, at least in my circles.  Last week it was WordFoto, and this week it is ToonPAINT – Toon-FX.  It helps you create a cartoon style rendering of any image, which you can then paint with your preferred colors, or you can just keep it black and grey, as I did here. I put the original image, taken with my iPad while waiting in the American Airlines lounge in San Francisco airport below for comparison. It occasionally seems to get a little weird, like it did here where it looks like I have major scarring or something somewhere between my chin and neck, but generally it does a fine job and can be a lot of fun. Make a super hero pose and build your own story. The app links are affiliate links, so I get a penny or few if you make a purchase. If you didn’t see it, check out my post on WordFoto from last week.  And don’t forget to take a self-portrait and post it on instagram or twitter using the #selfportraitfriday hash tag.
