This is either the school portrait of a teenage girl named Saya or it’s the single best photorealistic CGI rendering I’ve come across to date. Honestly, I couldn’t figure it out at first glance (or even second). What do you think?
These are, shockingly, CGI. They’re the work of the uncannily talented duo of Teruyuki and Yuki Ishikawa. The husband and wife team work as freelance 3D artists in Tokyo and, according to Spoon and Tomago, plan to have Saya star in a film they are self-producing. Per the artists, the hardest part was creating her supple, realistically-textured skin — her hair, however, didn’t turn out as well as they’d hoped.
