This Isn't A Painting, It's A CGI Masterpiece

(Video Link)

The computer has become a powerful tool for the artist over the last twenty years, and CGI has reached a level of realism that makes it possible to bring anything you can imagine to life, but digital artists who choose classical works of art as their inspiration really have their work cut out for them!

Farkas Zsolt has created a 3D masterpiece that brings Benczur Gyula’s classical painting Budavar visszavetele to life with hi-res models, and unless you can see the three dimensional contours of each subject it looks exactly like the original painting.

The entire scene weighs in at a whopping 8.5 million polygons, which means it's more poly rich than your average still shot from a Pixar movie, and Farkas was kind enough to include a breakdown of his entire process so both the curious and those brave enough to attempt such a feat for themselves can give it a shot.

That would be amazing, can you imagine how cool it would be to go to an art gallery and check out stereoscopic versions of classical works of art? An animated version would definitely be fun to see as well, with the battle scenes actually come to life before your eyes.
