Expressionist plug-in is a precision tool for facial expression synthesis, for making caricatures from photos, and for animated portraits creation.
The plug-in uses 'Self-Organizing Lens' technique that looks like so-called 'liquify' manipulation. The shape of lens duplicates the image relief, you can adjust the lens integrated characteristics, such as skew, shift, and angle of refraction. The random variations generator helps you to create a grotesque caricature with just a few mouse clicks. The disbalance of some facial metrics (e.g., the eyes shape diversity) can be easily corrected with help of your Image Editor tools, like the 'liquefy' filter of Adobe Photoshop.
