Really Amazing Work (CLOSED)
Creativity is hard, thus all those who contribute here deserve a pat on the back and round of applause.
There are mountains of impressive and amazing work, as well as inspiring creativity.
I have noticed two/three really exceptional offerings - well worth taking the time to look at and admire.
The Artist - Reizibarrientos has produced probably the most life-like/realistic face I have ever seen:
Dasha - Teen for G8 Female ... is the first facial character virtually indistinguishable from a real life (very attractive) person you might meet in the street, see in a block-buster movie, or walking the catwalks of Paris.
... This character/model is so exceptional, it raises the creative bar to a whole new level.
Luxuriou Ichigo (same creative genius) comes a close second; perhaps because the model has not quite got the same degree of 'wistfulness' (facial expression) as Dasha-Teen.
... Both are well worth looking at. Never seen better.
The Artist - Ion - latest offerings include the most life-like/realistic feet (wrinkled soles/skin), produced to date (ever seen) ... added to his realistic and dirty feet contributions.
Wrinkled Soles for G8; Dry Feet - G3 & G8; Dirty Feet for G3
The dry skin sole/foot was a stroke of genius, along with dirty feet (we've all had those) - both 'raising the bar'.
Wrinkled skin raises it (bar/standard) yet again. Truly and exceptionally brilliant.
... It's like visiting the (real-world) art gallery - then marvelling at the craftmanship/craftladyship of the historic masters.
Looking at these leaves you in a state of awe (and moderate concern/mother-paranoia ... about your feet/socks).
Real measure is when you look - you immediately think your feet need lotion, cleaning (before Mom scolds you), or maybe you were swimming/in-the-bath a bit too long

Ms Foxy ... a pleasure ... and thank you for the kind words.
I noticed when first I visited just how hard you and the others try to make RenderHub better and something special; however sometimes the burden of responsibility weighs a bit (on the soul), more some in times like the present when folks everywhere are worried, or mourning a friend/family member who has passed.
At such times, life gets a bit easier if neighbours share the burden.
You would be aware Ion was talking with me a bit behind the scenes. That impressed me, as have you kind words, providing a further motivation to stop past and help a bit, as time allows.
Might surprise you - sounding and looking as you do (just past your 21st birthday) ... that I seem to recall - some decades back, there was a young Foxy Lady over at Deviant Art BBS (and a young Kaos and Nightcrow were - doing Gothic art/sketches).
That Foxy Lady was very good at drawing/illustrating eyes ...
This brings me back to what I said of Reizibarrientos' "Dasha Teen for G8" and what I think makes it so exceptional. As a lady you know what I mean by that slightly wistful look, woman have/use in real life. I suspect they practice it (in front of mirrors), then once perfected gets put in the arsenal for 'nailing targets' (aka. good prospects).
Thing is it was missing from 3D characters - in realistic form. Reizibarrientos has managed to capture it ... which is truly admirable.
In the standard art world (Oil & Water colour), they rave about the "schools" and particular artists contributions. I think it might have been Da Vinci who first added refected light in eyeballs (massive break-through in realism); then possibly Rubiens who first put a mirror in a room/sitting (of King Phillipe & Queen Isabella/family - Spain) that reflected a side-rear view and effectively added a third dimension to painting. Amazing ground breaking stuff - albeit back around when I was still in nappies.
All you guys and girls presently blazing new trails do not see yourselves in the same light; however history will
I do see your work/effort in that light - thus coming here and looking around is a real privilege/honour.
What I admire about your work is the style (clothes/dresses), and the reality of the posing/leisure stances. Your dresses are stylish and could be found/purchased at a boutique for casual-dressy or clubbing gear - without 'going over the top' (as many offerings do). Your models are actually comfortable (not suffering hernia's). So - like Ion's realistic, rough-skin and dirty feet ... add a "truth" aspect to the models and renders.
Maybe in ten or twenty years time, lecturers in fine arts will refer to you lot as the "Truism School" of the CAD/3d revolutionary period.
With that I'll run off before boring you senseless, because I've been 'multi-tasking' and participating in the SC20 (NVidia) technology conference ... (which has been thus far excruciatingly boring and has not told me anything I was not already aware of).
On that and in closing - I noticed you have some lray renders - thus are running high-end NVidia equipment. To save time and fooling around - if that misbehaves ... ask me directly (saves you having to go up to their, MS's or HP/Dell's support sites/forums).
