This is done with a computer. But it's not as easy as you may think. It's not just 'push a few buttons and there it is'. The software only does what it is told. So all the textures, shading, perspective and wire frames for the subject are done by hand. (Nope, this person is not me)

Makes you wonder how realistic we really want CGI characters (especially in movies).

At present CGI seems to work better with cartoon characters, like Kung Fu Panda and Ice Age, rather than people.

Eventually we might even see dead actors back doing new stuff via CGI, like John Wayne, or singer/dancer Michael Jackson returns.

Would that be real creepy or what :confused:

Indeed. If they become 100% realistic, then real actors would be rendered obsolete. Remember S1m0ne? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0258153/ I wouldn't want that.

Creepy. There's something weird with her skin.

Looks amazing! The only thing that looks off is that the skin looks like plastic or wax.

^Probably because the texture is so consistent. Skin does not look the same all over the face.

Most of the scenes portraying Oliver Reed in Gladiator were shot after his death by a heart attack. I knew it before watching the movie and I never could tell the CGI character from the real actor.

The eyes and the area just around the lips still freaks me out.

Wow, that is like, the creepiest girl I have ever seen... D:

I mean, I gasped when I saw the picture. Her expression is so... dead. I'm just like, "woah". :/

The eyeballs, and the way the light and eyelids interact with them still throws off the entire facade.

She looks dead.

Skin may need some kind of inner light that emanates from within. Like a breath of life.

Even the top image on this page, despite imperfections in her nose made ​​to look more realistic, it is as if lifeless.I think it is necessary to create an inner light that would make the textures not only reflect the outside light but transparentized some kind of inner light.

Actually there was only one scene that Oliver Reed was added to after he had died which was when he released Maximus and when he was killed. They actually changed the end of the film as it was supposed to be him that buried the figurines at the end.
And he wasn't a CGI character, they just took footage that they had of him from different scenes and changed the clothes and background etc.

Bit different to these portraits that have been posted which are stunning... if still slightly unrealistic! :p

I think she looks really cute, in no way creapy.

But that's very young skin. Most of the stuff we associate with "skin" is really sun damage. Look at an area of your body that doesn't get a lot of sun, and you'll see very consistent texture and coloring.

Kids have amazing skin. Wear good sunblock!

Wow both these pics looks soo life-like. The artists did an amazing job. If there's anything creepy about it, imo, is that how far the technology has come, to create models that realistic.

It kinda reminds me of a porcelain doll that's been applied with make up. Still amazing what can be achieved by digital means though. A big applause for the hard work.
