3D avatars – using a 3D scanner

A few days ago, I had the opportunity to borrow the 3D scanner from the digital media centre and Camberwell, I wanted to learn how to use and also wanted to get a few models to take them inside of blender and understand how they are build. I also convinced Anthi to help me. at the end we made this two models:

My reflection

Although they look pretty cool, I have to say that I am a bit disappointed because the mesh is actually a mess, I did take them inside of blender and concluded that if I wanted to use them as animated characters, I will need to spend a huge amount of time reconstructing them.

So I guess this will only work for static objects.
