This is another amazing human 3D computer rendering that goes beyond what we are used to seeing. ED is an ultra realistic 3D human head created by Chris Jones, a computer graphics designer from Australia. Ed reaches to a level of perfection where many have failed. The level of detail in areas that have always eluded 3D generated human form is astonishing. The eyes are amazing, the “dead eyes” look is no longer seen here as the eyes look incredibly natural. The skin detail is also well done and is basically impossible to differentiate from real skin. Last but not least, the face expressions and movements are so real that we can finally say that the technology has advanced so much that believable human characters can be created in a computer and we will never know.
While you watch the final video, try to keep remembering that what you are seeing was completely created in a computer. Chris Jones calls this a work in progress. We can’t imagine it getting any better. However, we wait with anticipation to see what else he can create. Chris used various 3D modeling and rendering programs to create ED. Here is the list:
Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita, composited with Davinci Resolve Lite.
Eye and Wrinkles Test
Face Expressions Test
The Eye in Action – Incredible detail
ED – Final Face Render
