Song Hye Kyo, Max Edwin Wahyudi (3D)


Title: Song Hye Kyo
Name: Max Edwin Wahyudi
Country: Indonesia
Software: 3ds max, ZBrush

This is a rendering of SongHyeKyo, the Korean actress.

I did this one as a challange from my friends, and also because she is my favourite actress. So, making the head accurate was the most important one for me.

I made her smile just for fun, but it turned out to be a very difficult process. I’m just glad it worked out fine :slight_smile:

I put all the other pics on the first page of this WIP thread, so please check it out:


That’s the most realistic 3d human i’ve ever seen.You broke my scepticizm.



that’s so real and nature…

5 star!


Very impressive work, and a nice WIP thread to boot. Well done indeed - Plugged.

My only crits would be of the mouth post that looks a little bit pinched in the corners, and the hair looks like it has maybe a few too few subdivisions in certain places at the top, however apart from that it’s one of the best CG portraits I’ve seen on CGTalk. Excellent work.


I have a hard time comprehending that is CG it’s so real, I was following your WIP, and I have to say it turned out even better then I thought it would. The only thing that breaks the realism for me is that some of the curly hair strands looks alpha maped. Other then that my brain feels like it’s going to explode due to your awesomeness…


:surprised (i guess this isn´t constructive but what the hell… there´s nothing to say)

Perfect. :thumbsup:


ahh you finally finished it… Seemed like you did so long ago as it was already so good . I will admit im not a big fan of the smile. But still over all top notch work


Definitely the closest to photo, human CG I’ve ever seen in my life.


hi max, Im not susprising to see your work plugged.
after saw it in ICG, I never bored to see again here in cgtalk …

as usual, I admire your patience, to make this stuff, little by little, especially your render hahahaha …

thx for sharing knowledge about skin shader also. :slight_smile:


Is she free saturday night?
…oh wait…

That’s truely superb. How long do you think that took?


Wow! Just Wow!
Honestly, this is by far the most realistic looking 3d human I’ve ever seen. Good work Max :smiley:
I think that the skin is very nice for the most part, if someone really wants to nitpick, they could say something about the ears being a bit waxy and hard looking. But the good thing is that your pragmatic usage of the hair to mask the ears takes away the need to care too much about that ehehe.

She looks so good! I think you should find some way to get your render to the actress herself :smiley: I’m sure she’ll think it’s super! 10 Stars for you :smiley:



WOW, man!!! That is huge!!! Awesome work! That is really a virtual reality… :thumbsup:


HOLY FRICKIN $%!@$%#$%^@#%^&@#!!!



Stunning work! I have nothing to say but still needed to leave a comment just for the congratulations.
Congratulations!! :applause:

All I could say is that her ears looks really wierd and not really elegant, but I’ve never seen this actress before. And according to the overall top notch quality of your work I guess she does have those ears for real :shrug:


ohhh shoot !.. :scream:

WOW :applause:

Gee man… clicked the thumb thinking it was some of Paul Hellard’s interviews… lol :smiley:

OMG! Sure when look with care we can find one or two picky things… but it is 99,9% real.
Brow… your Nathalie Portman was just perfect to me… this one… mind blower modeling…

Congratulations ! Over 5 stars… ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


OMG~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!:eek: :eek:

It’s completely insane to work like this

there just one word i want to say rite now



OMG!! I <3 <3 <3 it!!
It looks so real…



how come its posted already? thats fast o.O

I’m just wanna say thank you so much for the comments, and the frontpage too :), I’m really flattered now…

I don’t remember how long it took to make it…but I think it’s been 3 months already ? though I spent weeks just to wait for the rendering hehe (its 15 hours for 1800x1350 res)

also, I put couple of her reference pictures, and couple of direct comparison with the real actress during the WIP section, so check the WIP thread if you want to see it :slight_smile:
