Zsolt Ekho Farkas created this 3D interpretation of a painting by Hungarian painter
Benczúr Gyula (1844-1920).
The painting depicts the recapture of the Buda Palace in 1686 from Ottoman army. It took a month for Mr. Farkas to model all 32 figures, plus another five weeks to digitally paint and prepare the masks and layers. With the smoke and music, the moving-camera parallax, and the focus pulls, the scene jumps right off the canvas.
