Unbelievably Realistic Face Is Actually Completely Computer Generated

Video: The only thing that I think that doesn’t look ‘human’ about Ed, this computer generated human head designed by Chris Jones using Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita, is his ears. Oh and how he doesn’t have a body. But everything else is pretty perfect: the oil and bumps on his face, the wrinkles, I can even believe he has a soul behind those eyes.

This Video Shows How Pretty Much Everything In Game Of Thrones Is Fake

By now, we know that Game of Thrones uses a heavy VFX hand when it comes to building the world of Westeros but it’s still amazing how real their visual effects can make it look.

It’s that test footage — of a T-Rex walking — that changed movies forever.

Everyone has their own beliefs, so I don’t care if you side with science or put yourself to faith or are too lazy to think about it — that doesn’t really change anything here. Just enjoy the beautiful sequence in this scene from the movie Noah about the creation of Earth. It tells the story of how life was created inserting science into the tale of the Genesis.


Watch A Floating Naked CGI Lady Go Full-On Tetsuoooooooooo [NSFW]

At first, you probably think its just some run-of-the-mill organic stalagmites growing out of the nice lady with the shaved head floating in an imperceptible black space. But no, in Relics, it’s much, much worse than that.
