Here’s What Famous Historical Figures Would Look Like Today, As Shared On This IG Page (30 Pics)
It's always fun to see paintings, cartoons or anime characters come to life when people create realistic edits of them. Inspired by that, award-winning comic book writer Magdalena Vissagio decided she would try to see how famous historical figures would look if they lived in modern times. She uses mobile apps to create these edits, specifically FaceApp and AirBrush, and the results are quite impressive.
Magdalena writes on her Twitter account: "A lot of people think I'm a digital artist or whatever, so let me clarify how I work. Everything you see here is done in Faceapp+Airbrush on my phone. On the outside, each takes between 15-30 mins."
Apps these days let you do all kinds of things, from changing the way you look to turning you into a cartoon character, to even bringing photos to life! A.I. has gone very far recently and we carry it around in our pockets. It's only a matter of time before A.I. will be a big part of our everyday lives.
It would be very interesting to see Abraham Lincoln or George Washington these days. What would be their views? Would they still be in politics? Would Alexander the Great conquer the world or TikTok? Too bad that we're never going to find out—we can only see how they would look thanks to Magdalena and her project.
