Elaborate Classic Painting Gets Rendered Entirely In 3-D

April 1, 2014


Looks like a painting, right? Well it's not, it's a 3-D rendering of Benczúr Gyula's 1885 painting Budavár visszavétele created by 3-D artist Farkas Zsolt with over 8.5-million polygons. That is a lot of polygons. Polly want a cracker? Polly want a -- wait, where'd she go? "Polly gone." Zing! Come break my nose with your fist.

Keep going for shots of the progression from big ass polygons to finely detailed masterpiece, as well as a video showing the 3-Dness. More info about the entire process HERE.






Thanks to Claudin, who wants to live in a painting. Me too, just not this one. I was thinking more of a tasteful nude.

    Using 3D models to create a 2D picture with no 3D aspect? Genius.


  • I wonder if it took just as long to PAINT the original to create a 2D aspect of 3D images - "meh!" I say, "meh!" and thrice "meh!".

  • Bling Nye

    "No, no, trust me, it looks like 2D but it's totally in 3D..."

  • Kaizer Chief

    Amazing work, but I'm not really sure what's the point if we don't get to see an actual 3D fly-through of the scene.

    Projection /camera mapping, The deal here are the sculpt, so textures are practically projected over .

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    Even if it had just been untextured behind the normally visible side it would have been fascinating to see it from different angles.
