MSc Forensic Art & Facial Identification

Sarah Sipe

A cranium presenting with hydrocephalus was located at the Anatomical Museum at the University of Edinburgh and a three-dimensional scan was completed. Using the computer software Geomagic Freeform, a digital reconstruction was completed of the young Caucasian male followed by the addition of texture using Adobe Photoshop. An illustration of the excess cerebral spinal fluid in the cranium complements the facial reconstruction.
