Amalie is one of the works of which I am most proud as an artist, and is the most technically challenging piece I have ever done. From her pose to her expression, the choice of clothing and hair, the angle of the camera and the color of the light – every single detail was specifically chosen to evoke Amalie’s personality as an accomplished dancer, skilled diplomat, and reluctant spy.

The hardest part of this image to develop was the shader for Amalie's skin. As part of my movement towards realism I decided that it was important to build the skin shader from scratch, replicating or simulating the various layers of the skin in order to reproduce the subtle details and clues our brains use to tell real skin from fake. Simply developing the skin shader was extremely time intensive; because of the level of light interaction necessary for this detail the final render took approximately six months, extending well into 2011.
