:: ancient CG secrets ::

One of the pioneers of CG, Juan Siquier started creating images before software and hardware became as sophisticated as it is today.  I am a modernist at heart, but his images, with their painterly quality, are quite irresistible.  They appear like photographs which have had touch ups and photoshop filters added.  The level of detail is utterly mind-blowing.  They are all created using the tools of his trade… a computer, a Wacom tablet, and a mouse…

Juan starts with a photograph of his subject. He studies it until all the details are become a part of his visual psyche. Can you tell which one is the photo and which one is the render?
