The reconstruction of facial features on the human skull for purposes of identification has, in the past, utilized either two-dimensional drafting or three-dimensional sculpting techniques. Two and three dimensional computer aided routines are being developed to minimize errors introduced by limits of artistic ability or inconsistencies in the application of techniques. These routines allow generalized facial features to be manipulated via control points to conform to the size and shape of a specific skull. Subtle alterations of the surface form, texture and color based on age, sex and race enhance the individuality of the generated facial form.
