Artists create hyper-realistic CGI schoolgirl

Two 3D computer graphics artists in Japan have released images of a realistic computer generated person.
The creation of husband-and-wife team Teruyuki and Yuki Ishikawa, the incredibly life-like images went viral shortly after being uploaded online and left many Internet users struggling to determine whether they were looking at a real person or a computer generated character.

The virtual girl, who has been named Saya, is also set to star in an upcoming movie.
"Since we've been working on this between jobs, it's been somewhat hard," Ishikawa said during an interview with gaming site Kotaku. "We're going to give it our best when making it."

According to the couple the most challenging part of creating the model was producing realistic skin and hair textures - something that they are hoping to go back and improve upon in the future.

Despite the difficulties however it's hard to imagine how the girl could look any more realistic.

Still not as creepy-looking as some animated humans, namely Pixar's and low-budget advertisements' humans.

I'd say pixar is better, actually. they keep a somewhat stylized look which avoids the whole uncanny valley thing pretty well.

I'd say pixar is better, actually. they keep a somewhat stylized look which avoids the whole uncanny valley thing pretty well. Eh, I was always creeped out by the characters eyes and their rubbery skin textures. They always looked "off" to me. But that's just my view, and you are entitled to yours. But then again, any form of stylization always throws me off, I guess I just have a more realistic eye.

fair enough. i can see the rubbery skin thing, especially in the way they handle the movement of mouths, but it doesn't bother me, for whatever reason.

This. But that's true of Japan, not the West. Westerners idealize youthfulness which TO THEM means abusing young children. But especially American reichwingers are big hypocrites about this: - They organize father-daughter balls/dances, and have ice-cream parlors just for father-daughter DATES. - They organize paegants for six year olds, sexualizing them. - Reichwingers† elected Trump. Who has repeatedly sexualized his own daughter, live and on national television ("I would date her if she wasn't my daughter", when she was one years old: "She hasn't going much in chest area, yet", "The thing I...

Only the old man looked fake, because of the absence of light and shadow, I guess.
