7 Incredibly Realistic 3D Renderings Of Famous Characters Will Blow Your Mind

June, 3, 2014: Some of them are indistinguishable from real-life portraits.

Captain Jack Sparrow

The quirky and charismatic character of Captain Jack Sparrow, who appeared in the Pirates of the Caribbean series, was created by screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio and famously portrayed by Johnny Depp.

This remarkable rendition by ZhiHeng Tang consummately captures the vile treachery and the wondrous wit of the captain.

The Evil Witch

Inspired by Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, artist Sven Geruschkat created a portrait of the evil queen disguised as a wicked witch ready to give Snow White the poisoned apple.

King Henry IV Of France

Henry IV, also known as the "Good King Henry," reigned over France from 1589 to 1610. He was the first French monarch of the House of Bourbon.

This rendering of King Henry was created through forensic facial recognition of the mummified head CT scan database and done by the Dr. Philippe Charlier team in Paris.


He was the primary antagonist in Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables, which has been famously adapted as a musical stage play as well as a feature film in 2013.

Russel Crowe’s interpretation of Javert in the 2013 film, directed by Tom Hooper, was done by Luces.

Walter White

Walter White (alias Heisenberg) is one of the most badass characters in the history of television. He appeared in the American television drama series Breaking Bad on AMC.

The fan art, titled You’re Goddamn Right!, was created by 3D artist Riccardo Minervino. An interesting step-by-step tutorial of the image can be found here.

Jack Torrance

Jack Torrance originally appeared in Stephen King’s famous novel The Shining. The character was brought to life by Jack Nicholson in Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film of the same name.

The 3D interpretation of the now infamous ‘Here’s Johnny’ scene was created by Hossein Diba. The insanity on Nicholson’s face is still sending chills down ours pine to this day.

The Joker

Can this get any better? Heath Ledger delivered one of the most spellbinding performances as The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s second film of the Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight.

The iconic nature of The Joker’s character inspired many to create joker-based fan art but this CG version by VFX student Max Wahyudi might just be one of the best.
