It should be pointed out that the portraits are not "painted" from scratch.  The highly developed algorithm uses as source material real photographs, morphs them, combines them, varies them etc.

The algorithm does not, for example, generate from scratch the delicate iris, the pupil of the eye, and then judiciously paint the highlights on the eye and generate individual eyelashes... it does manipulate, combine, and vary countless images of faces in ways which do not manipulate the original photographic information beyond a point the appearance of "photoreality" is destroyed.


Here is an example from the site:

It comes complete with amateur "poor" flash lighting (likely from a point and shoot camera) as well as "red-eye" such a poor photographic environment creates.
