It might not be a type character but it's a character
**updated link added my moderator**
Come on at least make yourself if you're posting this! :D Here I am...I think!
L'anarchist c'est moi!
(Okay, so it would have been a more accurate portrait about 18 years ago...)
Haha your post made me laugh, John.
Nick! It's YOU man! :-)
Aha. I was going to post this link, but chickened out. Glad someone posted it.
What happened to "Dude"?
Here is my image
BTW those spots are being used as freckles in this instance. :^/
This is the closest I get...
Nick, that is frighteningly realistic.
Dude, this is WAY too accurate.
Here I am…
Why stop with self-portraits? I started trying to do Matthew Carter, but ended up with...
How do you post a picture? I get the screen shot but when its a photoshop file how do you upload it? Brain Cramp
Dan, there should be a little 'Insert image' link below the Comment field. Note that you need to have the Flash 8 Player installed.
Dan, you need the flash 8 player - then the image attach will work. 'A player?' you ask... Yes a player.
But it works.
I've just thought of a great new Typophile feature. In addition to the Typeface ID Board, we can have the Type Designer ID Board. How quickly can you identify this famous type designer:
I got the image-thing working now, thanks!
Lovin' the Gary Munch, John.
hhp should enjoy that one!
You got it! :-)
I see Hair Reynolds has nailed it all the way from Germany :-)
That must be Tiffany black :-)
Somebody else from Typophile...
Is that meant to be Thomas P?
Actually, it's what I imagine Chris looking like from that one picture in drag and the avatar... ;-)
Here's Thomas P! :-)
"I resemble that remark" Pretty darn close!
You look MUCH younger that that picture :-)
> we can have the Type Designer ID Board
Good idea :)
I thought I should try for a more up-to-date self-portrait, in case anyone tries to use this thread as a reference for identifying me at a conference.
Matthew Carter is really tricky, but it's something like this:
Unfortunately, the ponytail options in South Park are quite limited. Matthew has much better hair than this. I thought about editing it in Photoshop, but decided I liked the discipline of trying to make likenesses with the limited options available. The glasses are the wrong shape, but there's a great photo of Matthew looking over the top of his glasses like this.
It is very difficult to get a good selection for Gerry Leonidas' hair, but the classroom provides nice context:
Ed Benguiat. I wish there were an option for a proper flight jacket.
Those aren't clouds. It's the snow we got today.
Not quite condensed enough. =^D
I tried making Yves but yeah I wasn't happy with the lack of Condensed options :-/
Self projected me:
This is fun, makes me want to get a haircut.
