We’ve seen a lot of Japanese high school girls who have become popular online for various reasons, from being funny to being silly to being pretty. But this girl has been getting a ton of attention online all because of a little secret that is now out of the bag. Can you guess what it is?
She is actually a 3-D computer-generated model named Saya, created by the husband-and-wife team Yuka and Teruyuki Ishikawa. They’ll be explaining the workflow for creating photorealistic models at CGWorld’s Creative Conference this year using Saya, and the character will also appear in a movie they’re currently working on, which means the model will eventually move around too. We have no idea if that will somehow break the ultra-realistic illusion of the photos, but we imagine the video will look gorgeous anyway.
The team is based in Tokyo, though most of their work is freelance and they get plenty of orders from overseas. Saya and her movie are apparently a side-project they’re working on in their free time, which somehow makes it all the more impressive.
