The main challenge of this work was to develop a re-creation similar to that provided by a pre-existing 3D model, which unfortunately did not provided all the information necessary to develop "the most possible resemblance" to the reference image. It was necessary to develop several tests in order to confirm the materials, ambient lighting as well as environment; but the main challenge was to recreate the exact same facial traits of the original 3d model. In order to obtain a large-format rendering (20K), there were many technical details that I had to solve because the the maximum size of software has its limitations (max 10,000px), so the use of Photoshop was required to make an interpolation of several sizes and DPI resolution ready for print, even at 300dpi. As a result it was possible to develop an HD picture with all the exact features to the reference, and obtain a product of excellent quality.
