Exaggerated Shading for Depicting Shape and Detail
Dr. Szymon Rusinkiewicz
Monday, October 30, 2006, 01:00pm - 02:00pm
Princeton University, Department of Computer Science
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.
