It is a freedom and the right of all Friendster users to do what they desire to their own account in accord with its appearance. I enjoyed the same, too. In Friendster, I used the image of the Blessed Virgin to be my primary photo. Because of that, someone commented that I might be mistaken by anybody as feminine or aspiring to be feminine. Yet still, appearances will not be counted as an ultimate item for judgment (cf. John 7:24)
Yet what if I need those real faces for a project, and not for judgment?
I am planning to make a collage for the second anniversary of 100% KATOLIKONG PINOY! Some of our brothers in 100% KATOLIKONG PINOY are also taking their opportunity on this liberty. One of them is Philip. Philip uses a generated cartoon character on which origin I am not certain. I termed the word "generated" for I see many Friendster users using these cartoon characters that, with their similar art, seem to come from a single source.
Finding Philip is as difficult as finding a Victorian doll in a doll shop. Once, I had lost all the willpower to mind it for his interview (which is the first in the designation of being a member of the month). You have to sort out some of the hints about him, especially when his account seemed not to have him soloed:
In order to find Philip in that picture, one way that helped me much is getting little help from his other pictures. I used his cartoon pictures as my bases:
I noted some of the similarities in these three pictures. First, they all wore glasses. Second, all of them have facial hair activeness.
Instantly in the clue of wearing glasses, I picked out the two guys who have glasses. And in the clue of having a hairy face tendencies, I never saw it in the appearance of the face of the man in the foreground.
Then, can be Philip be the grinning guy in the left?
Just at that thought, a realization sparked in my mind. Why, the hair of course!
The occipital hair seems to extend on the back of the head, yet not breaching the neck-torso border. Also the style of the hair is much "curved" like in the cartoon. The white-clad straight-haired man in the foreground is out of description now.
And thanks to the late 'eureka' in the caption of the group picture that says:
"I am the one wearing the grey shirt."
I have found brother Philip! yet not that good enough. I felt like Dory, by the way.
