Has it been 3 years since my last post? :eek:

I don't see much 3d here, but here goes. I have been a Lightwave 3d user for years and mostly doing architectural and background elements/reference perspective for my art in Photoshop. Lately I've been trying my hand at modeling more organic things and animating for visual effects. Here's a new challenge for me, trying likeness. Actress Brie Larson is slated to play Captain Marvel, so I tried modeling her face. Her more subtle features I thought were more difficult to achieve than trying someone like Clint Eastwood that has much more exaggerated features. Maybe...maybe I got her smile.

If you clicked here and were a little creeped out, I know why. At least it was brought to my attention that the image looked creepy.

I paid attention on how the light affects the rich coloration and shadows of the iris and pupil. First, I adjusted the size and depth of the iris geometry and the overall size of the eyeball. Added a little bit of fresnel shaders to the eyeballs as well. Then adjusted the lighting positions and colors. I did some refinement to the shape of her eyelids and parts of her face. I think it made her a bit less "creepy".

Close but she still looks digital. Not that that's bad.

Thanks. Yeah, I wasn't going for realism, just trying my hand at 3D modeling a likeness.

Here's sketch of her I did last year after binge-netflixing United States of Tara. Talk about EYES...

Really nice sketch, yc. I'm particularly impressed with, of all things, the nose. It's a difficult facial feature to portray well in a drawing, but you did a REALLY nice job of it here.

Thanks. I do remember erasing the nose at least a couple of times before I felt like I could moved on.
