Face Hiding with the Popular AI-generated Illustrations

The latest trend in face hiding is the automatic generation of AI illustrations! If the photo clearly shows a face, an AI illustration will be automatically generated.

Face hiding has become popular on Instagram recently, and its main feature is that it creates a photo that makes it look like you have turned into an anime character.
