Anyway, 24 year old Sam Skinner is creating quite a buzz on the interwebs for the self-portrait drawings she made in 50 cartoon styles. Several web sites have articles about this; among them the  https://www.demilked.com/cartoon-illustrations-characters-different-style-sam-skinner/ article includes full sized jpegs of each one.

Very good. It seems a little odd that they didn’t photograph her wearing the same distinctive top as she depicts in the drawings.

Oh, I dunno! Don’t you think the photo that they did use is quite distracting enough?? :o

There is no mention I have seen for either one about the software they used but obviously this sort of thing could be done quite easily with Affinity Designer, assuming one is talented enough, which I most definitely am not. :(

Quite a few of the facial features like the eyes & maybe some of the mouths & noses could be added as assets.

It is not even close to as distracting as some of her other Instagram shots they could have used instead.
