Andrew Cawrse & Jordu Schell - The new Female Figure, v3A Medical model

   Andrew Cawrse has finished the new AMAZING medical version, of his anatomy female figure. Sculpting extra anatomical features & the vascular system, Andrew also developed photo-real materials for the skin & flayed muscle. Joined by his friend & VFX legend, Jordu Schell, (who Andrew met in 2005 while working on the pre-production of James Cameron’s epic film AVATAR), Jordu helped Andrew prototype the look of the incredible “life-like” skin texture. See photos below of some of the additional sculpting by Andrew, both Jordu & Andrew working on the look of the paint, and Andrew painting the final production. (click on images below for all 12 photos)
