Modeled from Korean actress Song Hye Kyo. 3ds max and ZBrush.

I think I can say that we're finally to photorealistic on human beings. Very, very impressive.

That is a fantastic image. You have to look very hard to see any hint of it not being real.

OK, that's freaky. I wonder how much work and rendering went into the one image. But with Moore's Law, eventually we'll be able to render 60fps like that...

The hair and skin still kill it.

Mind you, the hair now only looks like "doll hair" or bad hairplugs as opposed to "obviously CG", but it's still way too regular to be real. Additionally, the skin is too regular to be anything but artificial (which we're all used to seeing now in any magazine photo thanks to airbrushes).

Admittedly, I am impressed with their ability to acheive magazine photo "realism". But we're still not up to the point of indistinguishable.

Mind you, I'll be afraid when we hit indistinguishable.

The soft lighting really helps to mask the slightly plasticy look though. Taken as a whole, it's really remarkably convincing.

Oh, it is. I certainly wouldn't pick it out if I was just flipping through a magazine, and that is definately saying something.

The wacky thing is, I saw something like that last week when I visited my old high school. Apparently, they have this spiffy HP lab for 3D art, and one girl did a completely CG self-portrait as homework. It was nearly as good as this one...from a freakin' high school student!

Smoky Hill?

I was there for 3-December near the end of last year. They seem to host the Denver Area Robotics Club too. Makes Boulder High's computer lap look like some buncha luddites!

Yup, I went to Smoky Hill. The reason why their computer lab is so kickass is that they are *the* HP classroom for the nation, or some such thing. Not sure what the program is, but all the computers are bleeding edge and donated by HP.

Hmm, now I'm wondering if Computer Club gets to snag that room for LAN parties...

This group take a pretty cheap route, they take a specific photo and model from that. When they start from scratch I'll be impressed. But in the near future I think you'll see virtual porn using recognizable faces.
