Double Head from photos of two people, as realistic as possible

    I want to give a present to two friends of mine who hosted me over the summer in Washington, DC. I have an idea to make a bust-like sculpture of their two busts and put it on top of a keg handle (because they have a keg-r-ator). I think I will just put some velcro on the bottom of their busts and attach it to the keg handle myself. I just need a realistic looking bust of the two of them. I have tried to figure out Blender and to do this myself but I can't seem to get that going. So, I would like to discuss what you think is possible. My idea is to have their two heads joined together at the back-- kinda growing out of each other. But, if anyone has an idea that you feel like will work I would love to hear it. The only criterion is that it look (reasonably) like the photos that I will provide of their faces. Ideas? Costs?

    Sculpting two photorealistic heads would be quite a lot of work, which I suspect would cost more than you're willing to pay.

    You might want to have a look at this site:

    With that, you could take a bunch of pictures of them, and get realistic models of their heads. From there, it would be fairly easy.

    Hi, That's something I've done and my purpose is to do it every day for every people.
    Heads for jewelry consist in a fine job helped by photos or scans and the result I've obtained looks very great if it is reconstructed with my own cn milling machine or issued of a 3D printer.
    Let's have a look at this joigned example but two or better three ( face, profile, 3/4 ) photo's are required.
    I'm using a graphic tablet and 3D modeling tools to sculpt it; nothing to do with all those " miraculous all in one softwares ".
    My own head and the transposition in a bust ( 3.5 inches ) stealed into PU resin.
    See you later.
