A fun quick quiz. The following are a series of pictures that look ridiculously real.
Guess which of these chicks are real and which ones are computer generated:
Okay, now the answers. Which one’s weren’t real?
ALL OF THEM.
That’s right! Remember that movie with Al Pacino movie from circa 2000 called S1m0ne? Pacino plays an agent who creates the “perfect” celebrity/singer who will never show up late, complain, or bitch about the color of the m&ms in her trailer – not because she’s made of sugar and spice, but of ones and zeroes.
Anyway, CGTrader (a 3D Graphics blog) nabbed these similarly generated pictures of women (both based off real and imagined chicks), and then grouped them together recently for “International Women’s Day”. Although the bunch chosen might be missing a little variety if it wants to fit the “international” description, these are still some pretty amazing works of art here. Details like the eye reflections in the third and fifth chicks made these projects take as long as a month or so to complete.
It would be interesting to see images like these come to life in an actual film on the silver screen. Imagine how pissed high paid A listers would be if they saw a movie filled with performers whose extreme likeness to themselves made for a ridiculous amount of money… of which they’d never see a dime.
“This summer… Not-Johnny Depp stars in this high octane thriller opposite Not-Angelina Jolie…”
Pssh. It sounds epic already!
