Average european female face

Ok, crappy google translate, but it's really the image that's interesting:

Swedish original:

http://cornucopia.cornubot.se/2015/12/f ... lands.html

Here the guy has amused himself with downloading bunches of photos and then morphed them together grouped per country of origin, on order to get the country's statistically average female face. The point of the article is to decide which country has the most beautiful women, but that's kind of outside the topic here. I just though it was amazing that the statistical (europen) average is that similar all over the continent.

Might be useful as a template for modeling.

On the subject of "average european female faces"... I've been wondering, why is the default adult female nose so strongly upturned? The makehuman caucasian female nose doesn't seem to be average in real life as far as I can tell, and it' can be hard to turn it into a more typical flat nose without sculpting by hand or adding custom targets.

Looking at a plastic surgeon's homepage, it seems that caucasian noses are supposed to be more upturned than asian ones: http://www.sandiegorhinoplasty.com/abou ... inoplasty/

But this is just me googling for an answer, I don't know if that was the original reason for the look. :-)

And Caucasian--especially Scandinavian--noses are more chiseled, which is why I suggested an extra 'nose loop' that made its way into 1.1.

One of the reasons this is important (from the point of view of graphic arts) is that this 'chiseled' look became the standard for commercial illustrators starting in the 1950's. Oddly enough old "alpha 5.1" (the shorthanding is mine) has this nose much more than "1.1"
