Possibly the most authentic Doomguy face fan art I have seen on the internet!

Recommended Posts

Definitely one of the best ones so far. He looks a little too much like he works in an office somewhere, maybe he needs more of a crewcut look.

He looks like a dad. I think it fits him, I always saw him as a mature kind of guy who doesn't take shit from anybody.

Is there a source? The artist deserves some exposure for sure.

Dunno, I found it here 

 

 

If you find the source tell me and I will put it in the OP.

It was the OP. I guess there is a lot of credits going on here because the guy used neural networks :D

So I wanted to try and figure out what the classic doom guy would look like if he was a real person while being as faithful as possible to the original sprite.

Most of the credit ought to go the fine folks who made the StyleGAN AI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSLJriaOumA) and https://twitter.com/pbaylies who put together https://github.com/pbaylies/stylegan-encoder.

You might remember me from an earlier post where I made the first attempt:https://www.reddit.com/r/Doom/comments/6z7emy/doomguys_face_depixelated_using_faceapp_waifu2x/

To create this, basically you use the styleGAN encoder to build a "realistic" version of a face you give it. Then I'd tweak it to more closely match the sprite. Then I'd put it in the styleGAN encoder again etc.

This is the third iteration. However, the second iteration can be viewed here:https://twitter.com/Zergfriend/status/1131892671788699649

That is a deep dive into the uncanny valley if I ever saw one.

WE NEED ALL 40-something SPRITES OF THIS.

Would probably be a lot easier if someone made a very accurate 3D model with rigging and then made sprites out of that.

Wait, so I guess this was the "ground truth" that it was trying to copy? Uh, OK.

@Linguica I kinda like it. He looks wiley and cunning in that one, an archetype that also suits him. Like a fox or wolf.

The joke about doomguy's face suddenly talking to you mid game will become a reality. Wait for it.

Holy fuck.. The "what would Doomguy look like irl" question finally has a definitive answer! The picture where he's smiling looks like a happy dad on thanksgiving to me for some reason. He looks friendly, yet stern. Makes sense.

The problem Doom Annihilation has is that Doomguy is a male.

@Bauul it's 20%, not 25%. (320x200 taking the size of a 320x240 display.)

I imagine him in his nice suburban home, drinking a cold one while watching football, married to a former cheerleader and telling stories to his kids from his glory days when he blasted hell in the face with a shotgun. A simple but likeable guy with lots of wisdom to share.

@ kiras post, makes me think Michael Carlyle Hall (Dexter) could do a just portrayal.

If you squint at the one @Linguica posted, it really looks like him.

 

Also, someone make a female version through Faceapp. Let's see what Doomgirl would look like!
