    'Darkening' Nordids

    Has anyone ever tried to darken Nordids using image editing software? There's a lot of talk about Nordids being metrically similar to Meds, so there's no reason we can't artificially darken them ourselves to see the result. I know there's a couple of Photoshop buffs out there (OneEnglishNorman, Pervinist, etc) who would be able to do a better job of it than me; I tried darkening one example posted by peterthegreat in the 'Extreme Nordid' thead but it didn't come out too good:



    Anyway, you get the idea. Would be interesting to see some other Nordids given Med pigmentation, or vice-versa.

    Sorry to bump in & ruin your moment here, but to me this man in the picture still looks awfully nordid, even with his darkened colors.

    I would say that he looks rather similar to a North-Pontid with the artificially darkened features. But, I would suspect, most attempts to see how Mediterranid a darkened Nordid might look, will yield a result in which something doesn't look quite right. This is not surprising, because Nordids aren't simply blonde, fair Meds, (But this is often said, even by Coon to emphasize their essential morphological unity with other Med types) they're also larger, and more robust. But, overall, a true, unmixed, Nordid will look more similar to a Mediterranid, in morphology, than a Cromagnid type.

    In my opinion, Goeta types are the best subjects for this sort of 'experiment'. An interesting idea, at any rate, Glyndwr.

    Indeed, that is the problem. Nordids have a tendency towards deeper chins and narrower faces. Meds on the contrary have much more 'softer' features. It would be interesting to see how a lightened Gracile-Med looks. The depigmented people from Mediterranean countries do look rather Nordid.

    I really suck at this. If anyone else wants to contribute pictures I would be grateful.

    You don't have to look too far, there are plenty examples in British isles. These types are normally mediterranid with Atlantid pigmentation and sometimes with Nordid pigmentation.

    In all seriousness, someone like Pierce Brosnan may be a good candidate for blond hair... he has the leptosome/robust "slightly hard" features of a Nordid, whereas Meds are possibly just leptosome/gracile.

    Actually basing on pigmentation he looks arabid/southern mediterranid.

    Or to better explain it, the above picture reminds me of this Moroccan, who is considered on "exotic nordid." I'm assuming this Moroccan pictured below is brown eyed/hair.

    He looks Nordid/Faelid with blonde hair, but in a freakish, bad Photoshop way:
