Napoleon by Deligaris Napoleon by Deligaris
This is one of a series of renderings based on 3d scans from the original impressions of various historical personalities. The 3d geometry was reconstructed and optimized, then a hi-res texture was created, according to the corresponding historical references of each person.

These faces were created for The Yafka Studio, in order to be used in The History Channel's documentary "DEATH MASKS".

This is scary. In a good way of course. Just looking at that face just strikes fear into me, and i realize now why some armies ran away, just because they knew this man was coming. Napoleon was literally a god, all of the known world was under his control. Looking at him now makes me see that if this man was alive, he could have done much worse. He is a hero in my eyes, but also a symbol that everyone should run from. This is great though, dont get me wrong!

Well done!

This is really quite impressive, although somewhat disturbing. I can't help but wonder what colour his eyes were...
(This stems from the unsettling mental image I have created for myself where the eyelids snap open.)

All feelings aside, he seems older than I had expected. Excellent work on the detail, wrinkles and birthmarks truly bring this home for me. What was the original source for the facial structure? A bust or a death mask?

Thank you very much!
It was a death mask, but it wasn't 100% certain it was napolenon's, as another mask (older face) was candidate for that, too.
