Kaya, a 3D CG virtual female by the artist Alceu Baptistau
Kaya is a digital woman designed by Alceu Baptistao, modeled and rendered with Alias/Discreet Maya. This virtual character was released years ago and still today impresses me for her beauty and photorealism.
The author introduced the work by saying:
I am trying to make a believable digital girl to act as a future singer/performer
I think he quite succeeded.
For the artists more interested in the creative process, don’t miss the making-of Kaya:
Modeling, shaders, lighting and animation were fully accomplished in Maya, without the use of any plug-ins or proprietary software [...]
[...] Texture are spheric projected, hand-painted in Photoshop (no photo were used) [...]
Then the artists continues with details on 3D modeling techniques, layered shaders for the slin, CG lighting solutions, environment maps and rendering.
Ah! The character is fully animated.
