How to sketch faces like the police

Have you ever witnessed a crime? Can you still remember the face of the perpetrator? Wouldn't you want to sketch his face so that you can show it to the police or to friends?

Good news. There is an online tool that will help you do just that. Visit

Here is a sample. Tried to come up with a sketch of this fiftyish male who, together with a younger partner, rides jeepneys from Visayas Avenue to Mindanao Avenue or Edsa, during the morning rush, and victimizes unsuspecting passengers by slashing their bags. I happen to take the same jeep with them almost once or twice a week.

The sketch is quite off but it is probably because I am poor at recalling faces. Try the application yourself and see if you can come up with an accurate sketch.
