Description:


    A spare-time study that attempts to create a believable, charming digital girl from ordinary and imperfect face features. The goal was a face that, although not beautiful or 100-percent photorealistic, could appear alive and attractive in the same magical sense as cartoon or comics heroines do. The amateur-video test atmosphere is designed to contribute to realism. Part of the challenge was to use ordinary Maya tools and renderers, and hand painted textures, without muscle structure, special skin shaders, plug-ins, or photographic help.
    Maya was used for 3D work and rendering, Photoshop for textures, and Flame for online output.
