Collaborative Self Portraits at ITP

Created by Rosalie Yu & Alon Chitayat as a part of the Computational Portraits Course at ITP led by James George and Alexander Porter, the project aim was to create a series of self portraits that treat the body as a canvas for 3d drawing.

The duo used 123D Catch to create full body 3D scans with OBJs imported into After Effects using Elements 3D plugin. Thanks to the AE Cameras, they could control the depth of field in post production. They also decided to open up the creative process to collaborators and ask them to paint over our UV texture map. They created a template that was printed out on paper inviting the use of freehand drawing would contribute to the quality of the final portrait. Finally the new textures were mapped to the imported models. For more information on the process and more user submissions, see link below.
