Kate Moss Photo Transformation

I found a fun little tool online that converts your face into all kinds of different transformations. I used a photo of Kate Moss to transform as her head is a little more appealing than mine. Some faces work better than others.

Here’s the photo of Kate Moss that I used to convert..Continue Reading
