Korean Actress Song Hye Kyo recreated in 3D Computer Graphics. Now that’s SKILL. and then some. Modeling was done in 3D Studio Max and zBrush for rendering. WoW. You might know Song Hye Kyo from the Korean drama “Full House” and other Kdrama series.
My name is Max Edwin Wahyudi, and in this page I will show you the making of ‘Song Hye Kyo’ the Korean actress.
First of all, I started by collecting her pictures for reference, but because the lack of good images of her in the internet I decided to grab the images from one of her movies. Then I used zbrush to start making the face with traditional method. After I think It looked good, I exported the mesh into 3DMax for rendering.
And as I expected, the face likeness was lost in the transition between Zbrush and 3DMax. The reason was because of the perspective distortion and maybe the lightning.
So, The next step was recreating the scene into 3DMax based on the reference pictures.
The scene 1 camera was located that far away because I realized that they’re zooming into the face at the time. The lightning is using photometric lights with FG and GI (Image below).
After that, it’s all about tweaking the model to match the ref pic. I also used couple more views other than those three to ensure the accuracy
