A set of new approaches have been presented for the fast reconstruction and digital cloning of a real individual, using 2D human photographs. Bicubic spline and trigonometry functions are utilized to generate a 3D human silhouette constituting of hierarchical multi-resolution meshes with regular vertex distribution. Supported by a newly feature based local deformation integrated profile curve fitting and line deformation algorithms, the resulted geometrical model is capable of fitting effectively any real person. The details of the head and body feature can be cloned by a novel and effective plane texture mapping algorithm constituted of multiple sub-domains developed in the system. The successful integration of all these techniques enables to visualize any individual with life-like feature details by providing a number of examples
