Forensic facial reconstruction is the application of anthropology, art and forensic science to recreate the face of an individual from his skull. It is usually done manually by a sculptor with clay and is considered a subjective technique as it relies upon an artistic interpretation of the skull features. In this work, we propose a computerized method based on anatomical rules that systematically generates the surface of the face through a HRBF deformation procedure over a mesh template. Our main contributions are a broader set of anatomical rules being applied over the soft tissue structures and a new deformation method that dissociates the details from the overall shape of the model.
