Photorealistic 3D Ludwig van Beethoven Portrait Based on the Composer's Life Mask

Gorgeousness and gorgeosity made digital flesh, courtesy of Hadi Karimi.

Hadi Karimi, an experienced 3D Character Artist whom you all know and love, continues to wow us with his highly-realistic 3D portraits of famous people and historical figures by presenting a gorgeous recreation of one of, if not the most legendary composer of all time.

Shifting his focus from the latter half of the 20th century to a more refined era, the artist has set up a lifelike model of Ludwig van Beethoven himself, using the composer's portraits and a 3D scan of Beethoven's life mask, provided by Digitus Art, as the main reference. To set up the portrait, Hadi utilized his usual toolset, consisting of Maya, ZBrush, and Arnold, along with XGen, leveraged to set up the composer's iconic grey curls.

And here are some more of Hadi's latest works:
