    This is only going to further the disconnect between societal beauty standards based off fashion/models and what people actually look like

    Vice news is getting just weirder and weirder. I get that people like fashion and are into this stuff, but it would be a super small number of people, and the narrative about the white man creating a black man, and the nonsense about "admiring blackness" - totally lunatic religious intersectionalists. Nothing makes them happy.

    Personally I find this disturbing also a growing issue that humans wish to just erase careers for others. Models are meant to be humanly unique that’s the point of their appeal. Why is it also women that are subjected to this first.

    Given the amount of photoshop that gets used I didn't think models were really real for awhile. They were just templates.

    So he's basically enslaving a very dark-skinned digital model of a women to work for him, but he doesn't even pay her any salary. That's a new dimension of stealing from the black people. And this women doesn't even look African, she looks Western from her contours.

    In many cases, the models don't quite look realistic enough, so it makes it look a bit off-putting or cringey. Uncanny valley.

    Wow, I guess that dude didn't try very hard to break the uncanny valley, because that model is unsettling looking. It's also incredibly sexist. Why does it have to be a woman? You're not very "woke" VICE.

    She is so beautiful! But is this just an excuse to not pay actual models? There is a good point that dark skinned black models have a hard time getting modeling jobs and this could be an excuse to replace/exclude them entirely.

    That's not a "supermodel". When one thinks of a supermodel, they think of a white woman with long hair and a slim figure.

    Thanks Vice, for confirming the this man is white and someone in this world, thinks he is racist, for some reason. Whatever that has to do with what he is doing, I don't know.

  • A-Waz B!
    A-Waz B! Month ago +1

    Im so puzzled by this?? am not throwing shade at his work or others work but the model per say does not look realistic at sorts not to todays standards atleast. Especially in contrast to like games or cg short films. I've seen, no we've seen better hyper realistic cg rendered models, that lil miquela looks like a character from dead or alive or final fantasy. sure the animations are good but the models aren't entirely complex the textures of the faces look outdated by like decade in visual effects standards so how exactly are these models being valued at like 125million dollars?? And there shoudldn't be any claims of racism of his depiction of a black woman artists draw from real life or reference we shouldn't be enclosing them in a bubble specified only to their race. Even if the model looks highly africanized in features who cares, modeling companies have been advocating for those types of models for years now, they have a checklist to appeal to mass audiences just cause his modeling one in his home doesnt mean he is disconnected from people of a ethnic minority entirely and again this is the fashion/modeling industry they have checklist if you have a problem take it up with the high exc's who catagorize the beauty standards. We just got plus size models for mainstream fashion retail after years of issolation, are we now going to throw shade if he or an individual renders/models a plus size woman excluding the ethnicity. Like he said in the interview he mocapped using a black woman, that wasn't entirely necessary but it shows his attention to the false claims to me the claims are stupid.

    So if he makes the fake model black, he is a racist. Cultural appropriation? If he makes the fake model white, he is a racist. Lack of diversity? Gee, it is almost like the guy can't win. I wonder why he probably opted for the orange?

    • CG S
      CG S Month ago +1

      ​@Lechiffresix six - Even my "slow witted mind" can see that race should not be a part of this story. Who cares what color he made the fake model? It is a fake model.
      I would brand you some ambiguous epithet, but I am clearly too slow witted and cretinous to think of any. The higher ground is obviously yours. Consider your superior virtue in tact and fully signaled.
      As a life long liberal and non-orange supporter, I am not particularly looking forward to what is coming for the country. Watching guys like you squirm is amusing though. Silver lining I guess. Enjoy the next 4 years of orange crush.

    Sorry but I thought it was really cool that he used a black woman as his template. It's an honour if anything.
    Quite honestly, the first thing that went through my mind was _'O Shizl Gzngahr ... He likes him some chocolate, know what I'm sayin' n*gga._
    But sadly, I knew someone somewhere was going to make a fuss about a white man making virtual black women. I say, stay out of his fap material.
