An Artist Creates Police Sketches to Show How Different Book and Movie Characters Are

When we read a book we often create images in our heads: the weather, how a house or an apartment is designed, and, most importantly, what the characters look like. And that’s what Brian J. Davis, a filmmaker and digital artist, decided to do too. Though he didn’t use his imagination to create images — he used a law enforcement composite sketch software to get the most accurate results!

Bright Side decided to compare these sketches to the pictures of the actors to see if they actually match the descriptions of the characters in books. Let`s see what we got!
