I have a real image and I need to generate a synthetic image that is very similar in term of shape (I do not need to be very detailed). I am wondering how someone can do this using makehuman and blender. The background is not important. I want just to synthesize the person. Here is an example.

Just so I steer clear of any trouble, here are is my source of the image used: Pixabay Image Reference

Here are the results, and the Blend File:

    $\begingroup$ Thanks! It is an interesting answer! Could you put more details how did you do it ? $\endgroup$ – BetterEnglish Feb 25 '16 at 4:49
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah would like to see a tutorial video on that surely there should be interest in making a low res model from a photograph. $\endgroup$ – hawkenfox Feb 25 '16 at 9:19
  • $\begingroup$ It might have to wait until I can put some Blender time in, but once I do, I'll get it on YouTube, and post the link back here in the comments. $\endgroup$ – Rick Riggs Feb 25 '16 at 16:04
  • $\begingroup$ Grrr. So frustrated, I tried screen capturing, but for some reason my video capture stopped working. I'm going to have to see if I can get on another machine to make this happen - Sorry. $\endgroup$ – Rick Riggs Feb 26 '16 at 7:39
  • $\begingroup$ Woohoo - I got my screen capture finally working - You Tube $\endgroup$ – Rick Riggs Feb 26 '16 at 22:46
