The aim of my research is to test whether a digital method can be more efficient than a traditional one when completing a composite drawing. Composite drawings are often passed around to a lot of people from its completion to when a case is closed. By having a composite in a digital form from the beginning it would make this process easier, and it would allow more effective distribution to the public. This may include transforming it into a poster format for press releases or using it in court to show a jury. A digital method has the potential to allow a forensic artist to be able to complete more drawings, thus giving detectives and law enforcement information towards more open cases. I will be determining efficiency through the time it took to complete each composite and by how recognisable the composite was to the public.
