Digital Double Created for Elton John Farewell VR Experience

Posted on February 7, 2018 by Michael Nisbet


Elton John wanted to create a virtual reality experience recalling some of his most iconic performances from his early career and digital sculptor Kris Kelly was hired to help make it happen!

For the Legendary artist Elton John, Spinifex was tasked with crafting a VR experience recreating some of the most iconic moments of Elton John’s early career. My contribution to this project was creating the a high resolution digital double of young Elton John from the earliest days of his career. Working only from a present day scan of the artist himself, I had to use photo albums and images from the internet of performances from the 70s to rebuild, texture, and shade his face to a photorealistic quality.
