3D Model - Abigail

In my continuing journey to learn the use of 3D design software to create objects, I decided to try the modelling of a human head/face. I am not a visual artist and I do not have an eye for drawing curves and contours with a 3D perspective. I pushed myself to take the challenge to go beyond my comfort zone. It is doubly challenging to design the human head/face while learning new software .

Here is the wild look of Abigail with untamed hair and designer cosmetic contact lenses using a vibrant lipstick. Abigail is the name that popped into my head as I watched the image being rendered in 3D design software. There are 100,000 strands of hair in the model which is consistent with the average number of hair strands in a human head. Click the thumbnail image to see a larger view.

There is still so much work that can be put into Abigail:

  • A proper hair style.
  • Better eyebrows. It is hard to do things like combing the hair and contouring the eyebrows using a mouse.
  • Better effect with the eyelashes. I can make them longer with upward curl of the upper eyelashes and downward curl for lower eyelashes. They are already curled but not significantly enough.
  • Color matching for hair, iris and lip flesh tone as well as lipstick.
  • Better iris pattern.
  • Lip texture (with cracks) for added realism.

I have decided to cap my efforts on this model in order to try my hand at designing other types of 3D objects.

Here is a video of Abigail in rotated exhibit.
