My work explores similarities between target images and facial composites, accessed based on persons observation of image likeness, recognition and facial comparison methods. Considering how over the years facial composites have developed from sketches to digital 2D and 3D computer generated drawing. The choice to use traditional drawing and a 2D face system proved to be sufficient for comparison between two facial composite techniques. Automated face systems are used in different countries for compilation of a person of interest likeness. It has been argued that little research is done on ethnic differences. Hence the deliberate use of South African faces to further explore the quality of the ethnic database in automated face systems.
