Incredible hyperrealistic 3d portraits

I apologize for the lack of updates recently, my schedule has been quite hectic of late and I simply have not had the time to post. That said, this post is a doozy. 

The images here aren't actually photographs but cg renderings. Its truly astonishing how far the technology as come. The use of believable light, texture, emotive eyes, and shallow DOF really makes you look twice to be sure they weren't captured with a camera. The best example in my opinion is "Portrait of a young woman", which you can see below.

The boundary between the uncanny valley - a term used to describe computer generated characters that appear lifelike, but just a little bit off - and reality is truly getting blurred. Some of these images are near indistinguishable from actual living people. The possibilities in film, gaming, and other visual media are truly endless.

See the full set of images here.
