In our 3D Character Scanning we use both handheld Scanner and Photogrammetry. As the 2nd method is faster and can help us get more work done quicker, if available we use this technique.
The work on characters seems to be getting better every year. The focus of course is the face to bring in a realism that cannot be detected by the view on TV, Film or Games. Hair is also getting fast and better as well as the clothing. In fact on your same 3D Character here, we have done him in layers. Starting with his uniform we put the pants that is more like overalls, the boots, the jacket, harness with utilities including oxygen bottle on his back. The Axe, Oxygen Mast, and the Hat. Therefore, if you need to use your model for other shots. You have a complete package. We also retopologies the model to be animated and using high resolution textures.
We have also worked with animals and robotic type of Characters as you see in the banner of this site.
