    Default Monalisa oil free

    Hi-Res-Version-Here

    Tried to get as close as possible to the actual masterpiece from Leonardo da vinci, keep faithfull to elements like the sfumatto technique he developed, get it to look like a paint, photoshop helped a lot, the background is a mix with the paint and a 3d landscape i modeled/tex/render in zbrush, didnt get to put as much passion as i wanted due to the small time i had to get it done but i think it supported few ideas i had in mind.
    Excuse for using the same brief
    Everything in the scene went to zbrush before render, the background is all zbrush, then mixed with the paint in ps, the head and hands are normal maped in zbrush ,tnx for the zmapper great plug, the rest of the scene is mostly high res meshes from zb, all textures zb applink and ps.

    Very nice work! It appears that the edges of the masks have come through more defined than you would wanted?

    As soon as I saw you're Mona Lisa I thought: "Hey, sfumato!". Beautifull indeed, nice to see the old masters still inspiring us today. Copy and improve was the motto in the early days, and they were right!

    Trabajazo. Se echan de menos las grietas del original.

    Reptu: Excellent piece. The soft glow feels like the effect the masters got. Her likeness is very well done also.

    Top Row...

    Ah, such a lovely and inspirational piece of reference you've chosen there, reptu!
    Added to that, what a wonderful feat you've achieved in re-creating this so familiar to us all masterpiece - Excellent work
    You've even pulled off the traditional 'sfumato effect' well, which adds to its soft appeal

    Minor crit (very minor!) I remember 'La Giaconda' having more 'heavily lidded'
    upper eyelids (maybe heavier shadows under the upper lids are needed), and come to think of it, her finger-tips were
    purposefully 'over'shadowed' to aid in the particular type of composition used
    (unusual in it's own right not merely for its use of a 'dual-perspective' background!)

    Lovely work, and a pleasure to see

    Chris

    Thumbs up Z-ennaisance

    Gorgeous working of 2d and 3d! The hands are very attractive in this piece and almost edible... This image brings out the cannibal in me; both artistically and literally!

    Reptu:

    Much Respect!

    Cheers-
