Facial approximation/skull reconstruction is the process where soft-tissue/landmark facial features are constructed onto a skull to approximate the appearance of an unidentified person’s face when alive.

Our forensic facial imaging experts blend traditional illustration techniques with the latest available photo-editing software to approximate the person’s appearance in a two-dimensional format.

Some clients prefer a three-dimensional format. SketchCop Solutions uses 3d scans of the skull that are uploaded to, and rendered in, Geomagic Freeform Plus sculpting software.

Below is a sample of a facial approximation image demonstrating the 2d illustration process. It was created by SketchCop® Solutions.
