Nice mood, has a suspense style, like an Agatha Christy book cover :)

The face is beautiful. Maybe due to the to the light angle, the girl on the left of the picture has a more pronounced bump-map, which could be lessened.

WOW! Beautiful! Nice model and render, indeed! Perhaps the picture would benefit of slightly different expressions, but besides that, great pic!

How did you make the hair?


08 August 2004, 11:58 AM
Thanks a lot! has nobody figured out the big trick with the image?:D

ZNP- Shag:hair for the hair

I like more the right one, maybe because she is looking at me;-)

08 August 2004, 12:19 PM
don't know if it counts as a big trick, but the two halves are from the same render of the face I guess, only cut in half and the left played slightly higher and in a layer behind the right half. nice model.

08 August 2004, 12:24 PM
excellent! I think the face on the left looks better for some reason though...
Very nice texturing and it has a nice natural look.
Good original composition too.
If i have to say something constructive, its that i think the hair hanging over the right girls shoulder looks kinda like a see through veil - especially the shadow of it.
Any more pics? Close ups? diff angles? I wanna see more.

Some ace stuff on your site by the way!

BinarySoup- Yes! that's it, hehe... if you crop the black borders and offset the image you get something like the image below. So I kinda got two characters for the price of one.:)
Sorry for the spamming of images but here are a few more shots and a wire:

- Fantastic work.
- The faces look a little too symetrical.
- Very nice model.
- The look in their eyes is a little lifeless though.

I reali like your model her eyes are very expresive, Did you use reference if you did I have to meet that woman.:D

08 August 2004, 07:06 PM
I really enjoy the amount of detail you put in your work this is very nice.
Nice composition with the twins.

That's perfect!
Very nice detail :thumbsup:
But some little asymetrie would perhaps add more character.
Nice post-work. Makes it really look like a photo. :love:

08 August 2004, 07:28 PM
Very spooky the way they both look at you. Great stuff. :thumbsup:

08 August 2004, 08:19 PM
Wow this looks amazing! No crits here :thumbsup:

08 August 2004, 08:34 PM
very expressive modeling and great texturing :thumbsup:
very good job on the eyes especially !!
don't like the final image much though, I think it the image lacks some orignality and composition... but that's just my personnal feeling, too bad you didn't go *a bit* further with that model !! :scream:

Good modelling and texturing. I like the lightning, it somehow reminds me of a movie poster. Maby that's because she has "the hollywood face" :D I agree about the subject being a bit stereotypical, not that I have any problem with that! It is a very well executed image. Congrats!

08 August 2004, 01:01 AM
Oh no not the stars:D The thing about stars is they always start high and go down, heh.

Anyway thanks a lot for the nice comments! About the stereotypical look of the image I can see what you mean and I agree, because the image reminds me of many movieposters or maybe book-covers I've seen. I see it as kind of a tribute to those kinds of images though.

danielkenobi- I used a lot of different reference and tried to pick the best parts from various women I've either met, known or just from images on the net.

i like the great work ,,, i want some 1 to tell how to creat the hair:rolleyes: .. in 3dsmax .,. plzzzzz

08 August 2004, 11:43 AM
Ouch, maybe I shouldn't have said that about the stars, because they instantly went from 4.0 to 3.57:D . Would that person like to step forward and share his/her thoughts on the matter? I'd be really interested to hear them.:twisted:


08 August 2004, 12:29 PM
Great face. You convinced me that she is alive.

08 August 2004, 07:57 AM
That is very nice texturing and shading

08 August 2004, 11:50 AM
superlayer- Thanks a lot, that was my main concern when making this girl(s). I wanted her to look a bit distant, like she is thinking about something or maybe realising something.

shserge- thanks:)


08 August 2004, 03:45 PM
fantasitic modeling and lighting. yap, i agree with edharass. But arn't all the CG face are symetrical? Maybe try to put some work on the texture see if it breaks the symetrical.

08 August 2004, 03:50 PM
Nice. Love the texturing.

08 August 2004, 02:18 PM
the texture is wonderful, beautiful scene:thumbsup:

08 August 2004, 06:02 PM
very realistic face!
but somehow I prefer the right face half in the split-in-half version (the one you first posted) than the complete picture.

09 September 2004, 07:26 PM
Over all, I really enjoy this piece.

About the only detail (a minor one, too) I would note is the lack of luster or light reflected by the hair - it casts shadows onto her right shoulder, but none of the light is reflected by the hair strands.

09 September 2004, 07:42 AM
Looks great!! I knew they were part of the same face!!! Make the eyes (stare) more realistic...she looks like she's staring into space....other than that...fabulous work this!!:thumbsup:

09 September 2004, 07:05 PM
and what you use for skin shader? is the color map a photo?

09 September 2004, 07:02 PM
Outstanding Work! You really MAXimized 3DS's capabilities.
Her Eyes are Amazingly well done.
Any hires close-ups to see how detailed your maps get?

09 September 2004, 09:15 PM
:thumbsup: Eager to see more.
