Does anyone else notice that there's a black box over her right eye (under the hair)...messed up render? someone in the marketing dept. shoulda caught that. so sad...otherwise makes a great desktop wallpaper.

Iīve never noticed how smoke tends to form perfect lines below a smokerīs eye, interesting theory.

Hehe Just joking.

Looks more like a rendering artifact though.

**edited** IF itīs a rendering, because that looks more like a pic to me.

i'm wondering if they rendered two layers, one for the face (i don't think her mouth/teeth look real), which they messed up and had a black box in, and then they tried to hide it by rendering a layer of hair...

I'm pretty sure that's a photograph... the smoke being the CG part of the pic.

I think so also, although I really donīt understand that artifact. (I suppose marketing directors are laughing at us: "look they ate it all! the BIG mistery of the black box in the houdini girl! Hahaha!, suckers!")

Hehe

i'm still debating

I would think that if people were capable of that super extreme level of realism, we'd see it in other places than just the Maya startup images. I mean, if that stuff is supposed to be 3D, it blows Final Fantasy out of the water!

well if you take a good look at it, her facial features aren't all that distinct...not saying she's not friggin' hot, because she is...everything seems pretty well-rounded as though they just threw some nurbs patches together. her face is a little too well mirrored and her eyebrows look like they're fake.

Sorry, late post.

They are real.

I was at the last, ond only, 3December event here in MN, back in 2000, and the models were in a video they had playing all day.

The smoking girl is a real hottie tho

good thing she's real (no chance for sex if she's digital)...that means somebody in marketing screwed up the photo somehow. wtf is with that black box? i guess that would explain why some of the other pictures look fake too.

Yeah, I asked them why they kept such a BLARING mistake on the image for the posters, and she said it was becuase the guy who comped-in the smoke over her face, accidentily flattened, and saved the Photoshop document, and he just didn't feel like going back and re-doing it.
