Title: Pu Yi
Name: Alberto Blasi
Country: Italy
Software: BodyPaint, CINEMA 4D

I got inspired by a photo made by the National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry in Rangoon, Burma (1994) and by the main character of a movie, Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Emperor, which is about the last chinese emperor Aisin Gioro Pu Yi, so i decided to give my character the same name. Of course this doesn't want to be a copy of anything real at all, that's all i look for when i make 3D characters: creating life through the digital medium.
The modeling has been made in CINEMA 4D R9, same about the rendering. All the textures (except the background photo that comes from a frame of the Last Emperor dvd) are 100% hand painted with BODYPAINT 3D R2, 3k square resolution, the fur is Shave&Haircut. I also used the Translucent plugin and the Chanlum plugin in the luminance channel, the first for a good SSS look and the second combined with a fresnel shader for a tad peach fuzz on the edges. I also added some colour correction in post and then 3 different blurred passes of film grain, to achieve the same look of the movie.
What i was after is a serious strong look, in strong contrast with the tender age of the kid. I hope you like it.
Alberto "ThirdEye" Blasi.

That is an awesome render! :thumbsup: The eyebrows look a little strange, but other than that, I think it's fantastic.

03-30-2005, 03:51 AM
I agree, something with the eyebrows throws me off...looks fantastic though.

03-30-2005, 04:43 AM
Great work Alberto. As mentioned the eyebrows look off a bit, the lips are looking a tad strange, mainly the spec and corner of the mouth. The scalera (white part) of the eyes looks to be a tad bit too dark. I konw eyes are one of the toughest parts of a character, and you did a really nice job with them, they just look a little flat, and the scalera is off just a bit. There is also some wierd dirt or something on his upper lip that's a bit distracting. Excellent piece overall though. Well done.

03-30-2005, 05:34 AM
excellent and photoreal except for the eyebrows, as said above.

03-30-2005, 06:00 AM
5 stars ....awesome work

03-30-2005, 06:03 AM
you already know what i think :)

great job man.

03-30-2005, 06:06 AM
Very nice rending!!!

03-30-2005, 06:08 AM
I really like it, but it's realism causes some (missing?) aspects to stand out. There seems to be no actual tear ducts, altho it might be caused by contrast, and more noticeable is the lack of (or the barely noticeable) eye lashes. That's what I notice anyway.

Good job anyway!

03-30-2005, 06:13 AM
Great job. :thumbsup:

03-30-2005, 06:14 AM

Wow nice 5 stars fo sho. So this is modelled I want wireframe proof :) j/k heh Very nice definately deserved FP!

03-30-2005, 07:46 AM
I usually don't give comment on work..because there are so many cool stuff on this forum, I would spend my time doing it..but this one really really stand out, I got very touch by the character, such a mood !!
the render is great for sure, but something about the picture that carry me on..absolutly amazing !!

10 star for me.


03-30-2005, 07:51 AM
Great work! Amazing rendering!
Bel lavoro! Qualcosa non mi convince nelle sopracciglia...ma davvero notevole! 8!(che per me vale 4 stelle!)

03-30-2005, 07:54 AM

03-30-2005, 08:13 AM
great job Thirdeye! Im happy at last to see your finished work, not just WIP.;)

Wonderful pic, man...

I love the life inside that glance, the lighting and the shaders. About the eyebrows... it seems as if the hairs were sanded down. Do you know what I mean? ;)

Happy to see your work on this board again.

03-30-2005, 08:19 AM
:applause: BRAVO! :applause: Astonishing work, man! :thumbsup:


03-30-2005, 08:26 AM
oh my god!! five stars for me!

bravo Alberto :bounce:

03-30-2005, 08:28 AM
Very good work congratulation :buttrock::applause:

03-30-2005, 08:31 AM
Aisin Gioro Pu Yi really stands out on the CGTalk homepage. As a moving character it could work very well. Those details like the spot on the lips and fury eyebrows wouldn't be so noticable moving. Perhaps the missing detail that struck me the most was the lack of eyelashes. These could be done with a simple plane with eyelashes mapped on and cut-out with an alpha map.

The skin is perfect and would be keen to learn more about the use of SSS.

03-30-2005, 08:43 AM
Oh my... Before I read everything posted above, I really thought this image was a photo of a movie make up or something. Truly awesome!!! :thumbsup:

03-30-2005, 09:22 AM
BRAVO! ..this is a beautiful piece of art ... the modeling and the texturing are really well done ..and his expression is so deep ..it makes the scene so real ..
that's made my day!

:applause: :applause::applause:

03-30-2005, 09:28 AM
Excellent. Modeling a kid's face is definitely a challenge. A little off and he would look like a midget or an alien. Not that i'm saying midgets look like aliens..

I bow before you... and request a wireframe shot :)

03-30-2005, 09:28 AM
OMG!!! it's very realistic !! nice work Thirdeye !!
sei l'orgoglio Italiano con C4D!!! :scream:

03-30-2005, 09:29 AM
Fantastic job, great modeling, texturing, rendering... Forget about eyebrows, you know what they say: if its perfect, it looks CG. If its not, its for real.

One question: why did you need such a high texture resolution?

03-30-2005, 09:34 AM
love the overall quality, the colors are warm and beautiful :)
I have to agree about the eyebrows ;)

03-30-2005, 09:43 AM
EN: good work!!!

IT: sti ca..i!!!

:applause: :applause:

03-30-2005, 09:43 AM
GREAT! GREAT! GREAT! GREAT!... wire please....

03-30-2005, 10:08 AM
Wow, great render !!! impressive, nothing more to say !!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Very good job ! I like it... :bounce: ***** five stars for me !

03-30-2005, 10:14 AM
Very nice! dodgy eye brows but cool!!

03-30-2005, 10:17 AM
as always great work mate!
he has really strong look.

03-30-2005, 10:37 AM
wow so many replies, thanks a lot to everyone! But let me reply to everyone:

Leigh, Jarrede, Wedge: thx a lot, agreed about the eyebrows, i sharpened them so much they're actually too sharp now, i'll blur them back a bit

BillSpradlin: actually you're right, very good points

PhilOsirus: they'd both be good points for a standard european character, but asian kids are like that, some part of the eyes (the inner corner) are hidden but some skin that overlaps and the eyelashes are almost unnoticeable, look at this photo reference


neofg: thanks man, i currently live in Rome

kholio and all the others who requested a wireframe: here it comes


lemiere: actually the spot on the lips was intentional, it's a characteristic of the real kid who played in the movie that inspired me hehe. About the SSS... I used two plugins for that. The first one is Vreel's Translucent to get a good translucency fake, the second one is Happy Ship's Chanlum, which is perfect to get the peach fuzz effect when combined with a fresnel shader. I hope this helps.

Byla: i usually use big textures because they're the only one that look good even for closeups, when i start doing something i don't really know what the final camera/point of view will be like

Thanks a lot to all the others too :)

03-30-2005, 10:46 AM
excellent job!
Very emotional image and cool work especially on that lightning and texturing
Looking forward to seeing more art from you ;)

03-30-2005, 10:47 AM
Hi ThirdEye,
remember me?
Anyway, Ill join the choir: Beautiful!!


03-30-2005, 10:49 AM
It could be just my impression but MAYBE the cgtalk system compressed the pic down... Anyway for the ones who're interested here's one with the eyebrows corrected and in a higher size, maybe it looks better


03-30-2005, 10:59 AM
Nice work 3rd...I would like to see a little less DOF though personally...that's just a small gripe...but overall I would give you a 4...nicely done man.:):buttrock:

03-30-2005, 11:02 AM
impressionante... really stunning congrats ! :thumbsup:

03-30-2005, 11:03 AM
Great work Alberto :)

(same comment as the others about the eyebrows :blush: )

03-30-2005, 11:08 AM
Truly astonishing! Superb work! Although I think you should still adjust the eyebrows a littlebit. It looks as if they were added with Photoshop or something.. I like 3D :D :D But further: Really amazing:)

03-30-2005, 11:14 AM
Awesome work man..just awesome....:love:

03-30-2005, 11:22 AM
VERY NICE! There's nothing I could crit! http://www.cgtalk.com/images/rating/rating_5.gif and a :bowdown:

03-30-2005, 11:25 AM
Wow! The child looks awesome man! The spec on the eyebrows might need to me turned down abit....but other than that it's perfect. Increadible!

Alberto, that's insane crazy man. looking most definitely ACE.

that said, I would really urge you to add some eyelashes, I know you worked from the reference where they weren't visible, but I've learned that to create a believable cg image you need to do what is expected. people expect eyelashes.

Not talking about those huge things them girls of dreams have ofcourse, just slightly thin just barely visible eyelashes that give you the idea they're there but aren't obvious if you knowwhat I mean.

apart from that i'd say this ROCKS.

03-30-2005, 11:36 AM
Beautiful work Alberto!


03-30-2005, 11:56 AM
awesome! great work! :thumbsup:

Adam Gur
03-30-2005, 12:42 PM
hey, awesome work, but besides the crits already mentioned, I think his right ear looks too opaque, and consequently the shadow is way too strong in the fold.... hope this helps,


03-30-2005, 12:45 PM
It's just gorgeous. Nice piece of work on the skinshader.:)

03-30-2005, 01:06 PM
Great work "master" Alberto :)

Like Sheep said, you already know what i think of this piece, but in case you forgot, it simply ROCKS :buttrock:

03-30-2005, 01:29 PM
I think u have done a wonderful job, great render, great modeling, and great texturing except for the eyebrows (even if u blurred them in the last render).

I would modify a little the mouth.... 5 stars for me!

03-30-2005, 01:42 PM
Beautiful work. Congratulations.

03-30-2005, 02:18 PM
This is so damb good! Great skin tone! Very nice. How was the skin done? Shaders, special plug, good ol fashion paint?
Great job

03-30-2005, 02:25 PM
Well done,
I've seen the photo you inspired to, and I think you're right for the eyebrows.
The image is absolutely ace, a deep CG ART's example.
Congratulation, I'm looking forward to see another piece of your art!!!


03-30-2005, 03:09 PM
Wonderfull work - the yellow hue makes it even more alive.
Congratulations to such wonderfull work.

03-30-2005, 03:13 PM
It is a great render but there are a couple of things that throw me off. The eyebrows look weird but the top of the head, like the forehead and up bulge out. It is slight but i think once you notice it, its hard not to notice it if you know what I mean. Most people's heads do not bulge out like that at the forehead.

Great image however, very nice texturing and rendering. :thumbsup:

03-30-2005, 03:14 PM
Well, I already told you, but it certainly deserves the front-page billing. :thumbsup:

03-30-2005, 03:20 PM
Front page material, no doubt about that... lots of stars from me :D (inspite of the eyebrows that are quite disturbing)
Absolutely Super Stuff

03-30-2005, 03:31 PM
I can't believe it isn't a photo but a 3D work. Looks incredibly real. Great work! :thumbsup:

By the way, that movie is great, one of my favorites. :love:

03-30-2005, 03:36 PM

03-30-2005, 04:16 PM
Very nice work ThirdEye... you've really improved your skills lately.
If really... I'd have to say something, I'd add/work a bit on SSS as I find parts of the face just a bit too opaque... I'd also add a bit more of wetness in eyes.

Keep on,

The ripper.

03-30-2005, 04:32 PM
really nice. i love the style you've achieved here. the eyes and look on the face are wonderful. exceptional stuff =)

03-30-2005, 04:59 PM
Wow how interesting it is----China's last emperor Pu Yi turned into 3d CG....and the graphic is made by an italian!!

Great job!

03-30-2005, 05:00 PM
Sure... there's the brow thing, but that's far overshadowed by the convincing nature of this image.

Incredible work in making this credible.

03-30-2005, 05:03 PM
nice nice work as usual thirdeye...definitely one of your best to date...
just exudes quality well done bud...keep it up.:thumbsup:

03-30-2005, 05:11 PM
Incredible work, wow! Outstanding! Keep it up Alberto!

03-30-2005, 06:23 PM
wow man, damn cool work! the eyebrows maybe need a litle more work. but .. it's one of the best works with c4d, if ever seen! :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

03-30-2005, 06:25 PM
first of all, great work. second of all, have these critics ever seen an asian person before??? it's like they are all trying to make him caucasian ("give him eyelashes! give him tearducts! don't make his eyes so squinty!"). as an asian, i know what we asians look like, and you hit the nail on the head. are they all blind? i could see his eyelashes just fine and they are just the right length.

i love the little bump on his lip and his serious, but relaxed demeanor. bravo to you for adding some character and diversity to the ever-increasing number of bland realistic CG out there.

the only thing i would change, even from the fixed image, is those eyebrows. they look like they have been burned and are now curly and singed. i would try to make them light (as in not thick) and very, very straight.

all in all, fantastic job!

03-30-2005, 06:33 PM
hey its from some chinese film u r foolig us.

awesome work man........................

Again, the eyebrows look a bit odd. But, this is truly amazing - Great photorealism. Well done!

Strange - my post didn't show up.

Again - wonderful work - the yellow hue makes it even more alive.

real great shader...but the eyebrows look like they were only color and bump map?!

03-30-2005, 11:34 PM

great stuff alberto, very lovely shaders and lighting.

not much else to say :) just very very very nice

03-31-2005, 09:38 PM
Simply incredible! Really a captivating image... you have the expression down perfectly.

03-31-2005, 10:45 PM
I think the SSS effect is a little strong, appears to be glowing from within to me. The eyes look flat and the eyebrows have already been mentioned. Technically a very nice render.

04-01-2005, 12:24 PM
Nice job! Fantastic! Really well done!

04-02-2005, 02:31 AM
Great piece... Thats all I want to say... but feel I can't as I generally write some kind of commentary on someones work. Those people who only write a couple of words or so, really get on my nerves.

There is something around the young chaps eyes that I'm not sure of, but am too tired currently to figure out what it is thats bugging me... Its probably my eyes so ignore this fatigued idiot.

Keep this stuff coming,

Respectfully. :)

04-02-2005, 07:50 PM
great stuff!! I think eyebrows looks good instead, very expressive pic! lighting and render are awesome! very bravo!! :thumbsup:

04-02-2005, 11:29 PM
Nicely done.
Props to you, man.
Hey, and some tribute to the Chinese culture?
Why not?

Hehe your plugin definitely helped me a lot Arndt, i always recommend it. The next one will use your newest plugin, Vreel Skin, for sure, i'm already loving it! :)

04-05-2005, 10:32 AM
Very realistic eyes ! A lot of cg characters have 'dead' eyes. Congrats on achieving the look.

04-05-2005, 10:37 AM
Hehe your plugin definitely helped me a lot Arndt, i always recommend it. The next one will use your newest plugin, Vreel Skin, for sure, i'm already loving it! :)

Thanks again.
Unfortunately Vreel Skin came a little too late for this project, but hopefully you'll find it a usefull tool while working on the next masterpiece :thumbsup:
Please let me know if your work includes weighting, as I have something new in my sleeve for such work. :)

04-05-2005, 10:51 AM
(un)luckily it doesn't ;)

04-05-2005, 11:28 AM
a tragic monarch...

04-06-2005, 01:56 PM
I have one crit about the image. The eyebrow could use some more work. Right now it looks odd and not realistic at all. It looks more like dirt scattered or sprayed on her eyebrows.

04-06-2005, 05:29 PM
It is wonderful !

There was only something on the eyes bugging me, maybe abscence of small vascularization, you know, small vessels. Maybe it makes a lil difference.
But I have hundreds of Bertolucci's Pu Yi references, I have checked some of them in high res and your work fits great really !!!
If I were Bertollucci and I needed a CG artist to make a CG Pu Yi for a remake of this movie... well... then this guy would be you!


04-07-2005, 12:44 PM
It's amazing! great work man!

04-08-2005, 07:11 AM
WOW !!!
fantastic, realistic great image !!!

04-11-2005, 01:07 PM
excellent ! cap is important in china at that time,so i think it will be better if with more details.

04-13-2005, 06:12 AM
had to go back and look at the eyebrows! but l thought the right ear looked a little detached or far away at first glance, good job, looks great<img>

04-13-2005, 11:58 PM
wow so many replies, thanks a lot to everyone! But let me reply to everyone:

Leigh, Jarrede, Wedge: thx a lot, agreed about the eyebrows, i sharpened them so much they're actually too sharp now, i'll blur them back a bit

I think it's not so much the sharpness as the hair itself that makes is look off. (If I judged your render correctly.) Do you have a closeup of an asian child's eyebrows? I've got a hunch that they contain fewer but slightly longer hairs. I also believe that the whole eyebrow is slightly more narrow.

04-14-2005, 12:20 AM
unvelievable, i think it was a frame for the movie :thumbsup:

04-14-2005, 12:27 AM
well done. his birth spots add a very realistic effect. 2 bad on the eye brows. if i were you i would fix it up and re-post. chao.

04-14-2005, 03:51 AM
Very nice rending!!!

04-14-2005, 10:24 AM
***wonderful head model*texture*lighting progress.:thumbsup: ***very well:)

04-14-2005, 05:47 PM
The colour tune of the render looks really fitting to the setting, and model is well done with out a doubt. The only thing I kind of notice quickly is the eye shape....they seem slightly unnatural to me. I am talking about the outline of the eye, not the detail of the eye. Still, very well done human close-up shot.

04-14-2005, 05:57 PM
Absolutely awesome!

04-14-2005, 08:08 PM
Frightfully realistic, keep up the good work :)

04-15-2005, 08:18 AM

Pi Yi, the last emperor of China!
Like your job!

My skill set is not yet at this level, but a few comments on this admirable work. Color and comp seems to be dead on. Agree with other comments on eyebrows and perhaps the depth of creases around cheek/lips junction. The cap strap on the right hand side of the image appears to me to be too symetrical - just doesn't look natural. I wish I could do this level of work... enjoyed the image. I must work toward this level. Thanks for the image and inspiration.

04-25-2005, 05:21 PM

Great work!
Excellent skin and cloth texture..............
But the face is not a 100% orient characteristic.....especially the eyes as well as the nose
I am living in China so I know that well.....
The following links are showing how are the original facial features going:

05-05-2005, 01:20 AM

Beautiful, very realistic and emotionally driven. Pulls the viewer in. 5 stars.


08-18-2005, 01:04 PM
Hi, man! This is the kind of stuff I would like to do in 3d some day. Congratulations!

I wonder if you could share the translucency settings you used for the skin both in Chanlum and in Translucent pro. I have so far been unable to get a skin as realistic as yours.


09-09-2005, 04:01 AM
Nice job! The Last Emperor goes down as one of the greatest artistic cinematic accomplishments of all time, great choice in subject and what a great eye for detail.

10-30-2005, 01:04 PM

02-06-2006, 09:52 AM
Wow, man! It's unbelievably real! How did you manage? Respect!!!

I tried a lot to make a photo real model of my friend (chinese too), but the skin looks waxy, eyes are like made from glass, the face lacks the feeling of live human being, etc.

OH, please help me! I would be so greatful to you :)

I would love to see your tutorial, can I hope you'll provide this one?

04-16-2006, 07:24 AM
Beautiful work!

very realistic and very impressive and expressive! :thumbsup:
