A 3D Caricature System by Fusing Caricature Images
|Issue Date: ||2009-09-17 14:08:15 (UTC+8)|
With the advances of hardware nowadays, the computation and demonstration of 3D graphics are readily attained on a personal computer. At the same time, thanks to the prevalence of instant messaging software, webcam has become very popular. These combined factors have motivated us to design an economic and effective solution for general users to create their own 3D caricature models without complex procedures or instructions.
In this thesis, we have developed a system which can extract and analyze facial features from an image pair captured by two webcams, and then generate a 3D face model based on it. Specifically, we improved previous research to obtain more accurate feature locations, and extended the exaggeration algorithm to generate more impressive effects. By fusing a caricature produced with different work as references, the system is capable of painting the face model with various artists’ styles.
