Question about face modelling

Actually I’ve asked this question at Beginner forum, since I need a solution for help urgent, so I ask it again at here. I’m doing a school project for hman face recognition and modelling, by input a few photos, tan create the 3D face model. And I was planned to use a standard face model in .3ds format and create a mask to recover the face of model. But I don’t know how should I do to create the 3D mask to recover the face, can anyone help me? Or if anyone has other method to do so, please tell me thanks a lot.

Perhaps you should try a 3D modelling forum as the method of creating a model, face recognition, loading images etc. have very little to do with Opengl.
