One of the most impressive aspects of the realness is the non-symmetrical face. No one, not even the most attractive people are perfectly symmetrical.

Yes Yes <3 :slight_smile:

Gee, @bartv, with all due respect to you and @Mohammad_Fakhri, I guess it doesn’t take much these days to get on Featured Row. I mean, c’mon, it’s the 3D-scanned Emily O’Brien test model. Standing on the shoulders of giants, it doesn’t take too much effort nowadays to learn-by-example and create a realistic skin material. What’s next, Suzanne on Featured Row?

Was @pixelgrip’s Emily test from a year-and-a-half ago on Featured Row?

It’s bad enough all these posts “sculpted/modelled in app X, textured in app Y, rendered in Blender” are making Featured Row one after another. What is this, a general 3D forum?

Again, with all due respect, it’s nice work but hardly anything more than a material test.

it’s not about your work, Mohammad, i like your Images on artstation!

i think that there are so many good works in the finished projekt categorie where artists made a complete scene from scratch in blender; so a Testfile, where only the material-setup is rebuilded from an old maya-file, is not so great.
