I conducted this project to teach myself about photogrammetry. Unlike the other work in my portfolio, the head model seen above was not created from scratch. The base mesh was captured from 3D scan data. I learnt a lot from the experience and will be publishing a tutorial on the process to my blog shortly.

I encircled the subject with eight markers, distributed evenly on the floor. For each marker, I took three photos: one from below, one from eye-level, and one from above. I took some additional photos at the end to capture extreme angles occluded from the other photos.

Various features such as the eyes, headscarf and cryogenics-reminiscent jar were created from scratch in 3DS Max, Photoshop and ZBrush.

The end product is a short video toying with the prospect of emulated intelligence. I created the footage using Marmoset Toolbag’s turntable render feature. The footage received its editing and special effects in After Effects.

A lightweight version of the head was uploaded to Sketchfab’s web viewer and accorded a staff pick.
