How to make complex emboss without plugin

Hello everyone,

I am trying to create something like this using only rhino 6 and no plugin.
Can anyone tell me how to do this ?

Thank you.


if you can clean up the image removing the shadows you can start with _heightfield.

Anyways, it is a time-consuming task and it requires artistic skill.

Another approach would be to enter the image as background and trace the boundary with a spline then create a surface and start “sculpting”.
