Paranthropus boisei - forensic facial reconstruction
With the time, and with the experience, I noticed that some properties of that works repeated constantly.
Because this, I developed a methodology to make the reconstruction faster, both with humans as hominids.
Paranthropus boisei. The work, how ever, it have the help of the archaeologist Dr. Moacir Elias Santos. He took some excellent photos that was the base of the 3D scanning with PPT-GUI.
CT-Scans of a Pongo pygmaeus and a Pan troglodytes (chimp) how references, the muscles was modeled.
InVesalius to reconstruct the CT-Scan in a 3D mesh.
While I deformed the skull, the skin got the appearance of a new hominid.
Australopithecus afarensis to be deformed and match it with the skin base deformed from a CT-Scan.
To finish the work, I made the texturing and put the hair. The render was done with Cycles.
I hope you enjoyed.
A big hug!
