091 - A Few Good Men

Day 91. One of our English teachers at school asked if I knew of an easy way to visualise characters. Her students were reading a novel and she wanted them to create drawings of how the characters looked in their heads.

My first thought was to use a police identikit to construct the faces. A quick search turned up FlashFace at http://flashface.ctapt.de/. It also has an app for both iOS and Android. The web version is pretty good and does quite a lot, but the free version on Android is a bit limited, and only does male faces.

Still, it's worth a look and it made the English teacher very happy.
