Thanks a lot! It was loosely based on a photo scan data from my own face to start with, then with sculpting it changed a bit as it was never a goal to do a self-portrait, I was just the most easily available model around. Your comment made me curious about how Bela Lugosi looked when he was around my age. I guess we share a couple of similar features, but alas I'm still a far call from him
Thank you, yes sure, I've attached the image of the rough workflow. Unfortunately I haven't been saving the progress very much as I went along, so only had a few screenshots, but you can see it more or less.
The first one is the data I got from scanning the photos. Then the other two are sculpting progress stages. So there was quite a bit of cleanup involved, but the scan data provided an awesome base to start with, so I only had to concern myself with actual fun part of adding the details, which sped things up considerably.
The photos were taken on a 500D Canon,18-55mm kit lens with autofocus off and set manually. Lighting was just an overcast daylight through a large window, and overhead fluorescent lights turned on to try and even out the shadows. Background was a white wall, camera set in one place on tripod, turned myself around in front of it taking photo roughly every 5-10 degrees. Main challenge was to try and keep the same facial expression and to stay relatively on the same spot centered to camera. Not easy
