Penetrating computers and process automation into all the fields of human activity meant a breakthrough in the research of forensic methods applied on facial composite production. Although the issues stemming from unsatisfying graphical presentation of composites have been resolved by implementing computational technique into creating facial composites, software developed and used by the police in the most countries of the world still has not achieved satisfactory results. The research presented in this paper aims at developing an alternative technique respecting human ability of recognizing faces and eliminating the limitations of the previous systems as identified by psychologists within several years. The paper is concerned with a novel method of generating facial pictures. We presented the initial research on holistic and hybrid model and demonstrated the ability of generating novel facial images based on the proposed solution.
