Artist Creates 3D Pixar-Style Characters Using Stranger's Faces

There are so many talented artists and designers out there today and one of them that really stood out is Lance Phan, 3D CGI animator and designer known for creating Pixar-esque animated characters of complete strangers.

Phan uses software like Blender, Marvelous Designer, and Photoshop to create these impressive artworks. Photoshop is used to apply a few color and sharpen filters. Marvelous designer is used to provide the character with some basic clothing. And most of the heavy lifting is done with Blender, including sculpting the character, object generation, rendering and more.

A full character render takes between one to two hours due to the high quality render settings and amount of detail applied to the design.

Here a few of Phan's finished designs that I simply find breathtaking:

brunette female with glasses

female blue hair

female Marvel cap

female plaid shirt

female blonde with beanie

A113 Easter Egg In Every Pixar Movie

A113 Easter Egg In Every Pixar Movie

If you're a die-hard Pixar fan, or just avid user of the internet, you may have noticed the "A113" appear in nearly every Pixar movie. The letter/number combination has also appeared in some Disney movies, Marvel movies, and even an episode of The Simpsons! A reddit user solved the mystery for us:

"A113 refers to a classroom number at the California Institute of Arts. It was the classroom for first year graphic design and character animation, where many of the animators at Pixar and Disney, and several other studios, discovered and mastered their craft. The use of A113 in their films is a friendly nod to one another that they once shared a classroom without which they would never be doing what they're doing now."
