  • How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Looks like five years thus far.

  • What does your username mean?

Just A Man's Eye. I felt inspired...

  • Describe yourself in three words.

* Three
* Words
* Not.

Dude, who can resume himself (or herself) in just three words? Human nature is far more complex than that. Anything less than a book would be stereotype. And I hate stereotypes.

  • Are you left or right handed?

My daughter is left handed.

  • What was your first deviation?

I think I have deleted it. Looks like the oldest I can get back to is this one:
Sunset by JAMsEye
Not even sure it's the one though.

  • What is your favourite type of art to create?

Coding. I am a developer.

  • If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

I already do... (Lol) Like I care. No, I don't want to master anything instantly. I want it to take time. What's the point otherwise?

  • What was your first favourite?

This, maybe:
60562 Wallpaper by kubicki

Not even sure either. I sometimes tidy up my faves so the very first one might just have been removed, too.

  • What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

DeviantArt works.

  • Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Jean-Michel Jarre, Pink Floyd or Genesis are no deviants, I believe.

  • If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

I met Shue13 once in Paris. Please, check out his awesome work! I met crayonmaniac at her exhibition, too. Magical moments.

  • How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Fellows who impacted my life most are no deviants.

  • What are your preferred tools to create art?

My hands.

  • What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

My mind.

  • What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Not DeviantArt-addict enough to have any.

Here's a retouched version of ViCt0RXD awesome realistic AoD Lara. An impeccable Texturing doubled with a perfect mood. However — as goes with almost every 3D model I've seen — it was a little detail close to be really... realistic. Check 3D models and the Uncanny Valley.

Maybe you have already experienced that uncomfortable frontier that exists when you see a model that is close to look like a human. But there is something strange that doesn't fit, something that holds back from feeling familiar with the model.

Most of the time it's about the eyes. The skin, clothing may be as realistic as can be but if you don't pay attention to small details like the eyes, it won't work. Most 3D models lack the little spark that make a character truly human. There is indeed a reason we call the eyes the mirror of the soul.

Here are the details, side by side.

The full edit I made to Vict0rXD's sublime render of Lara AoD Shorts.

How to cross the Uncanny Valley:
  • realistic eyes
  • smoothed edges
  • unsharpened contrasts (along edges)
  • shadow and light more consistent
  • lighting and contrast changed (+20, +20)

Will you spot the 7 differences...?
