Impressive, but they look like either good art or photos of very good wax dummies.

Oh wow, that makes a lot of sense dude. Well done.

BS
not 3D, but rather photo realism… and lame effort to promote site and self.

I’m not sure how you forgot this one, of Song Hye Kyo. It’s almost 4 years old, but was possibly the first photo-realistic CG image to take the internet by storm. And it’s still good to this day.

These are really good, although I could tell they were fake with all of them. Maybe the title was just misleading, b/c I have seen some that are really impossible to know, and these seemed a little bit more stylized.

superman, will turner and kaneshiro arent 3D they’re 2D digitally painted portraits

so beatiuful,so cool and these seemed a little bit more stylized.

These are so cool! Does anybody know what program or programs you need to do this kind of thing?

very beautiful portraits ;)

These are amazing… crazy what can be done.

Speechless…

@Ashley:

3D Studio Max and ZBrush for the 3d renders, the Orlando Bloom and Angelina ones are most likely done in either Photoshop or painter with a Wacom Intuos tablet.

Stunning! With some pictures you can’t tell they’re not real

Great great great, like real.

Wow look like very real.

It’s a nice- Nice – it’s like true

Breathtaking is absolutely the right phrase! My favourite is ‘Do you want fries with that?’ I like the way it looks as if you just caught the moment, the facial expressions are wicked!
