Default Realistic 3D Portrait (Blender 2.6)



I'm creating a tutorial series explaining the creation of a realistic human portrait with Blender as a result of the image
here
. I'll be covering the entire process from base mesh modeling, detail sculpting, texture painting, hair growing and styling, sub-surface scatter shading, and compositing. Some of the more time-consuming tasks will be time-lapses with commentary like modeling, sculpting, and texture painting; the other parts will be mostly real-time. I hope they're helpful!

I'll update this post as each part is completed:

Part 1:
, YouTube
Part 2:

Part 3:
, YouTube
Part 4: Vimeo, YouTube

Thanks for sharing, this is looking great !
I hope I'll find some time in future to tryout blender , after seeing this video I am even more convinced that it is a great tool and it's free.

Part 3 is now available (added to the first post)

thanks @Grapix - I'm glad you're interested in given Blender a shot! It's unfortunate that more professional artists of your caliber don't give it much thought..I hope you have a good experience

Looks awesome! How are the retopo tools in blender these days? I've used it before but kinda felt it got a bit out dated, it is coming up to date again?

@shilbert: Aww bud, thanks!

@Storm: Thanks! I'm a big fan of the built-in retopo tools (as seen in part 1) and prefer it over topogun and especially zbrush. Blend_Ideas has written an incredible tool called Bsurfaces that is particularly useful for retopology (demo). It also depends on what you're coming from. If modo 601 is your tool of choice, Blender's modeling/retopology tool-set might not seem as up-to-date. If you're coming from maya, Blender has its modeling/retopo tool-set beat easy imo.
