This comment applies to all of your synths. Nice ... very, very nice. All 5 of your synths are beautifully done. Lana's face synth is a new standard for face synthing. I, found your glove synth by accident this morning, and had to check them all out. I now have 5 new favorites to add to my collection, as I am sure others on this site will also.
Quick question: What brand/model camera are you using ?
Keep synthing! You do exceptional work.

Best human head synth Ive seen yet. A bit freaky in overhead view though :-)

Thanks, guys! In this shot I am using a Canon 30D with a standard 50mm lens and a high F-stop. For lighting I am using 2 Alien Bee studio flashes that are bouncing off the walls.

I'd like to add my enthusiasm. Lit as she was, and as still as she was able to hold, the point cloud is far less "noisy" than most synths. Did you make this synth as part of a project to model her face, perhaps?

Very nice. If she can wear a highly textured cap, then the point cloud would be much better than just with the hair:

What is the resolution of the photos?

Oh... well done!

Human heads have the strange property (when you can see through them) of sometimes looking as though they're rotating the opposite direction that they actually are. I don't know if you've ever seen the optical illusion of the silhouette of the spinning ballerina, but rotating Lana's head here brought it all back for me. Zoom out until the point cloud is almost solid and then use either the halo or a combination of [D] and [L] or a combination of [A] and ['] to rotate her head slowly, keeping your eyes on her face.

Ed, I hate to rob you of your standard interview question, but you can use Fiddler ( ) to nab the URL to the deep zoom collection for the synth. It has an index of all of the deep zoom images' URL, dimensions, and file formats.

For example, this synth's dzc file is located here:

To view that in Fiddler, after installing it and asking it to monitor your HTML traffic, open the 'Inspectors' tab in the top right hand pane, 'Text View' in the lower right hand pane, and use [Ctrl]+[F] to search your traffic for 'dzc'. I should also mention you should browse the Direct3D version of the synth to collect this, but I'm assuming that you're doing that already. In this way you can tell the resolution of the photos in any synth.

bhowiebkr, sorry to fill up your comments with this gibberish, but there's just no direct messaging on the site.

I don't know how new you are to this site, but you definetly brought out some noticeable synths.
Although I am amazed with "Lana's Face"... as with any subject or scene, there are many takes on how the final synth is presented. I like to check out a lot of other synther's work, and occasionally I'll check out their favorites. I usually leave with new favorites I otherwise would not have found. The favorites I collect are either just plain beautiful and/or inspiring. For example, a beautiful colorful and interesting face synth by dariusmonsef "Head of Greg" . With his synth, you get a feeling of Greg's personality. I think it's the eyes and the beard. Each of my favorites show a hint of what is possible. If you enjoyed making your synths and hopefully you plan to make more, check out my favs and then check out my fav's favs. I hope you find favs to inspire you for your next projects.
