Artist Merges Two Celebrities Into One Creating Mashups That Confuse Many (30 Pics)
The last time we wrote about Benjamin's (aka Morphy_me) celebrity face morphs, he had 55K Instagram followers. Now, he has almost double that, about 100K. The Photoshop wizard has continued merging photos of famous people, and he's gotten even better at it. He doesn't take his face merge work too seriously, saying that he's just "a French guy having fun on social media," but Benjamin's fans are constantly applauding the perfect 'hybrids' he creates, always asking for more.

From time to time, Benjamin takes on more unusual challenges. For example, he did a face morph of Ryan Reynolds and Kate Beckinsale after the 46-year-old actress said they looked "exactly" the same on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."
He's also mixed together the features of couples like Barbara Palvin and Dylan Sprouse, and actors who have played the same roles, like Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix.

"I'm always surprised to see my page growing so much," Benjamin told Insider. "I never expected these photo manipulations would get popular like this, but I'm happy with it. I got reposted by big magazines, big accounts, and noticed by celebrities themselves, it's just so crazy!"
The artist said he tries to run the project the same way he did when he first started it in 2015. He keeps his photo editing method a secret but revealed that each "morph" takes about an hour to make.
"I'm still doing the same process, but I added some steps to make the merged celebrity photos more realistic," he said. "I want the morph to be more detailed and disturbing. So now I spend more time editing it, but post less frequently."
