In fields ranging from technical illustration to mapmaking, artists have
developed distinctive visual styles designed to convey both detail and
overall shape as clearly as possible.� We investigate a non-photorealistic
shading model for 3D shapes, inspired by techniques for cartographic
terrain relief, based on dynamically adjusting the effective light position
for different areas of the surface.� It reveals detail regardless of
surface orientation and, by operating at multiple scales, is designed to
convey detail at all frequencies simultaneously.
