Further editing of the 3D scan I did using Agisoft Photoscan. After preparing the scan with the Photoscan app, I used Maya to further edit and smooth the body mesh. The distortion produced by the 3D scan is still obvious, however I don’t mind because it adds up to the final “distorted/melting” result.
Planning to make another 1-2 scans and then start to build the combined mesh for the final piece. The scale of the piece and the body scans selected depend on the visual result.
