The first 3 seconds is what matters most. That's where we capture 90% of the details of your expression. Be electric for 3 seconds. After that, just turn your head with roughly the same expression. You can relax. Just don't talk. Or laugh. You can do both when you're done.
Clear your face before your 3D scan. Remove glasses & earphones, and pull hair off & away from your face. We are going to remake you as a digital avatar. If you have hair, glasses, high collars, earphones, etc, in front of your beautiful face, we will assume that it is part of your natural bone structure and you will come out looking lumpy. (Which is fine with us if that's what you're going for... just saying.)
For better results, clear everything off that gorgeous mug of yours so we can see who you really are. You can customize your figurine with the hair and body of your choosing once you get to the Customizer. Also, make sure your eyes and whole face are well lit.
Here's a silly video that might help you out.
