Sylph

The 10 year old has a project to come up with a 3D representation of a specific vocabulary word: sylph. Scouring various model sites, and this resampled version of a statue scan from the Stanford 3D Scanning Repository seemed like a good fit. We’re using a modified, and much simplified, version of Lucy that’s been pre-processed…
