Artist Recreates Clockwork Orange's Most Iconic Scene in 3D

Julie Matta unveiled a series of horrorshow renders inspired by Stanley Kubrick's legendary movie.

3D Character Artist Julie Matta has paid tribute to Stanley Kubrick's legendary film adaptation of Anthony Burgess' A Clockwork Orange, producing a detailed 3D recreation of the movie's protagonist, Alex DeLarge, enduring the horrors of the Ludovico technique.

Developed as part of Julie's Think Tank Training Centre project, the model impeccably captures the likeness of Alex's actor, Malcolm McDowell, and translates the essence of the original scene into 3D, all thanks to the artist's attention to detail in the character's expressions and the overall atmosphere.

To ensure the character's three expressions closely resemble those in the original, Julie utilized the camera setup from the movie, particularly the focal length and camera sensor specifications, as well as those from the 1973 film O Lucky Man!, as the main references.

As for the software, Julie employed a combination of Maya, ZBrush, Mari, Substance 3D Painter, Marvelous Designer, Nuke, Arnold, and DaVinci Resolve to create the model.

"I sculpted the neutral face using image planes in Maya, with a back-and-forth process between ZBrush and Maya to fine-tune it again," commented the creator. "Each expression has its own texture to accurately reflect the blood flow but share the same topology. Organic textures, such as the skin and eyes, were created in Mari, while the brain machine, the wheelchair, and the garment, were textured in Substance 3D Painter."

The artist was also kind enough to share some of the behind-the-scenes shots demonstrating the project from the in-production perspective:
