“In this post I’ll talk about my little adventure to reconstruct the face of this specie. This work is a type of continuation ofTaung Project, because the knowledge used there was tapped here, with some increase of the technic. I have to thank to Moacir Elias Santos, a Brazilian archaeologist that took a serie of pictures of a cast skull on Museu Egipcio e Rosacruz.
The skull used was reconstructed with PPT GUI (scanning by picture). To increase the quality of the reconstruction, I used a CT-Scan of a chimpanzee. The skull of chimp was deformed using Lattice modifier on Blender 3D, until match with the Australopithecus skull. Obviously, the skin was deformed too. After this, I used the reference of the deformed skin to modeling the final face.”
