Meet Imma. On her Twitter page, she describes herself as a virtual model and proudly declares, “I want to attract humans to the fashion show.”

Sounds good to me!

Her name Imma is a wordplay on the Japanese word “ima” (今) meaning “now.”

According to IT Media, she was created by Tokyo-based CG company Modeling Cafe and recently graced the cover of CGWorld magazine.

Imma’s Twitter and Instagram feature her in a variety of locations.

Imma certainly seems to be a product of the times in which we live.

A much better convincing CG fashion model than others.

But it also has the same problem, the pixels on the clothes(and surroundings) and the face doesn’t match. Usually just a crop with the CG face and actual photos.

Sometimes there’s also a dissonance with the clothes + featured object and the environment (the picture with the car) due to the difference of pixels...
