Work in progress, hand-made with Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita, composited with Davinci Resolve Lite. Music by me. http://www.chrisj.com.au – – – Due to popular demand I’m attempting to extend the soundtrack, but it’s not coming easily… so it could take a while.

No scans, motion capture or photos were used (except for reference).

First half rendered in ~800 hours on a 2008 vintage quad core. Additional rendering by GarageFarm.

Thanks for all the comments!

    How did some unknown guy create something this realistic when all of the big studios cannot even come close to this? And this was 4 years ago. It makes you wonder whether or not we’re being lied to about what the level of realism that can already be achieved with CGI. I wonder if they’re already creating CGI people in movies that we all think are real. Honestly, it might be happening.

    While this is wonderfully detailed, it’s the animation that makes it especially realistic.. those quick movements and overall timing are what makes it next level imo
