Such an ordinary object, yet so disturbingly presented…

    This is exactly how character faces are stored for computer games. The game then wraps the image around the 3D head.
    Perhaps that’s why I don’t find it too odd to look at.

      I was thinking the same thing.

      I first remember seeing these for Quake 2 skins in jr. high school, and the tech probably existed well before that.

      Don’t you hate when you have an incredible thought, then read the comments and find others had the same thought over 18 months earlier?

      So, clearly, this is a wordy way of saying, “Me, too.”

    LOL any one who does humanoid characters in 3d modeling should be quite used to this kind of image. XD Tpages ftw!
