Thanks! What is your CPU and amount of RAM? I'm thinking of getting an Intel Core i7-8750H and 16GB of Ram.
What Bikmambetov is going to do there? He can only share how to make stupid movies :)
This would be so much more interesting if they'd offer help with housing and integration with a crash course in Japanese. Having some knowledge of the Japanese language and culture should be a pre but in my honest opinion, not a must. That would make this job hunt a much more relevant subject of interest.
EISKO released their 2017 head data package, a product for both VFX/offline and real-time environments. The pack features a full female head model (both low and high poly versions) and some high-quality physically-based 4K textures for face and head props from the studio’s capture system. The best thing is that it’s all free. Go on their website or download a version here, download a version of the datapack and start building up your render scene, be it in Arnold, V-Ray, Unreal, Unity, etc.
A closer look at the project:
On the left, a ref photo under flash+daylight conditions, and on the right, a render with no comp but a slim hair mask and background. This was done in Arnold and Maya with a home made skin shader, and using the VFX data.
Make sure to find more details on the project here.
