Terminator Skull

May 2009

A quickly put together partial model of a Terminator skull (the back is incomplete). This was used for doing some fun little composite images to turn a regular person into a Terminator with the skin partially torn off. Created right after it was announced that, unfortunately, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles had been canceled just when it was getting intriguing. The model is lit with a panaroma of a room in my apartment in order to match the photograph to which this model is composited; this was fully global illuminated with backdrop radiosity and ambient occlusion. There is only procedural texturing for the surfaces.
