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.

If you'd like to learn more about my proprietary methods please contact me at shragaws@gmail.com

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.
