Great model!

Can you show us the mesh? I have been trying to improve the detail of my characters and keep the mesh count low. When I first approached 3d character modeling, I didn't take model rigging and mesh detail into account. My meshes were too dense even with subdivision surfaces. My projects slowed to a snails pace. For a while now I have been building most of my characters with no more that 30,000 polygons total clothes and all that are used in my scenes. Even now that my machines can handle more geometry I still keep my characters around 30k. I find that less is more as far as more speed for work all around.

Well, I´m impressed beyond words with this one, how could anyone say that she is not believable!?!??!

I think she is freakin real, almost perfectly human, if not "perfect".

Which software do you use?

I think more realism would come up if you rendered her on a more realistic environment and lighting. But speaking of modeling and texturing, you are surely pushing the limit´s ass!! The texturing is perfectly fine by me, too.

I would be very glad if you´d share with us some of the extensive knowlegde used to produce this masterpiece. I would like to view some wires (the lowest as possible) and a brief on how you texture, specially some sharing about this amazing skin shader.

Looks amazing, I can not do such a thing myself, but I can tell you what is amazing. I also noticed in this posting alone, 3 times people have asked what software you are using. I wish as I had suggested to the administrators before, to have a place while posting images to describe what software was used. I get really tired of reading what software was used?

Aside from that excellent work.

Only have a moment to comment so no time to read all the other replies, sorry for any repetition.

This is amazing, very life-like! LOVE the smile, it really makes the piece!

The model is near perfection and I'm blown away by the skin texture and its lighting.

of course I couldn't give my 2 cents without a couple of suggestions. The things bothering me here would be the ear, shoulders, fabric and background.

The texture/light on the ear is not quite as convincing as the rest of the face and neck. The shape is a little odd but that's almost irrelevant as there are so many different shapes of ears.

The shoulders look a little too narrow compared to her neck, could just be the camera angle, need more views

Would like to see a little more depth in the background, not just depth of field, but actual substance, someth'n a little more rich in color for contrast maybe. However this is by far the most trivial part IMO.

such a wonderfully artful piece!

When I saw this in the wip section, I knew it was a front page plug waiting to happen. Congratulations and keep up the great work. I know what you mean about being forever in the wip state though. With computer art, nothing's ever finished.

Hi Misu!
I saw your wires and animation test at the Romanian site.. beyond all modelling work and texturing.. ( that its realy cool ) what stuns me is the Smile. You did a very good wire work in the cheeks, the loops are great..

Congrats.. Awesome work!

I would like to see how that skiin react to light movement, did u use gradients to fake SSS?
did u think how to do little wrinkles? ( in the eye or front head, for example )
