Personal project: "Lust For Life" - Hyper realistic anatomy performance
© 2020 by Shraga Weiss
With "Iggy - Lust for Life" I explore high fidelity facial anatomy deformation of a music hero of mine.Iggy Pop.
This is part 2 to the B&W version which is short and subtle as opposed to a full dynamic performance in part 02.
The challenge with Iggy was to explore the intricacies of the facial movement of an iconic figure: Iggy Pop.
This project is meant to be hyper realistic. Examining the super minute, high fidelity details of an iconic face in motion.
In order to achieve this I created an original facial animation pipeline that enables the exploration of the anatomy of an extremely expressive character such as Iggy.
The system I created is one that allows for hyper realistic and dynamic facial expressions (meaning more detailed and "pushed" than photo- real)
This project was done completely from scratch without any scan data or motion capture etc.

The project included all the elements of a major studio project from character design to modeling, original facial rigging, animation, hair grooming & simulation, lighting etc.
I was in charge of all the elements of the project. Created completely in my free time
