HD Realistic AOD Shorts by ViCt0RXD by JAMsEye
HD Realistic AOD Shorts by ViCt0RXD
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...?
