Variations on a Face 12

The amazing thing about MSG is that I'm always surprised by new processing effects it's capable of generating. This one in particular is fascinating. It shows the power of directed evolution for generating new visual processing effects, since i'm not even sure where i would have started if i tried to generate this particular effect from ground zero by building a processing chain by hand. The nice thing about directed evolution is that you just choose the example effects you like and then evolve or mutate variations off of the chosen preview image, continuing that iterative process until you arrive at your final effected image(s).
