Augmenting Hand-Drawn Art with Global Illumination Effects through Surface Inflation

Augmenting Hand-Drawn Art with Global Illumination Effects through Surface Inflation

Abstract We present a method for augmenting hand-drawn characters and creatures with global illumination effects. Given a single view drawing only, we use a novel CNN to predict a high-quality ...

L2 Divergence for Robust Colour Transfer

L2 Divergence for Robust Colour Transfer

Optimal Transport is a very popular framework for performing colour transfer in images and videos. We have proposed an alternative framework where the cost function used for inferring a parametric ...

User Interaction for Image Recolouring using L2

User Interaction for Image Recolouring using L2

Recently, an example based colour transfer approach proposed modelling the colour distributions of a palette and target image using Gaussian Mixture Models, and registers them by minimising the robust L2 ...

2D Shading for Cel Animation

2D Shading for Cel Animation

In this paper we present a semi-automatic method for creating shades and self-shadows in cel animation. Besides producing attractive images, shades and shadows provide important visual cues about depth, shapes, ...

Deep Normal Estimation for Automatic Shading of Hand-Drawn Characters

Deep Normal Estimation for Automatic Shading of Hand-Drawn Characters

In this paper we present a new fully automatic pipeline for generating shading effects on hand-drawn characters. Our method takes as input a single digitized sketch of any resolution and ...

DeepStereoBrush: Interactive Depth Map Creation

DeepStereoBrush: Interactive Depth Map Creation

In this paper, we introduce a novel interactive depth map creation approach for image sequences which uses depth scribbles as input at user-defined keyframes. These scribbled depth values are then ...

AlphaGAN: Generative adversarial networks for natural image matting

AlphaGAN: Generative adversarial networks for natural image matting

Abstract We present the first generative adversarial network (GAN) for natural image matting. Our novel generator network is trained to predict visually appealing alphas with the addition of the adversarial ...
