  • I was blown away by his Wolverine, the likeness of Hugh Jackman was just over-the-top awesome. It’s been a life-long dream of mine to create a project that required hyperrealistic likeness sculpts of digital-humans, and after coming across his work, I knew it would finally be possible. I am extremely excited about Hossein sharing with the world his techniques and technical knowledge. He is one of the very few people in the world who can capture likeness with such attention to detail
