    • Evaluating Visual Aesthetics in Photographic Portraiture 

      Khan, Shehroz S.; Vogel, Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      We propose and demonstrate a strategy to quantify aesthetic quality in photographs. Our approach is to develop a small set of classification features by tuning general compositional principles to a targeted image domain ...
    • Exploring the Effect of Color Palette in Painterly Rendered Character Sequences 

      Seifi, Hasti; DiPaola, S.; Enns, J. T. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      In this paper we explore the consequences of different color palettes on the user's experience of emotion as conveyed by facial expression. Artists have used colors and painting techniques to convey emotions in their ...
    • Feedback-guided Stroke Placement for a Painting Machine 

      Deussen, Oliver; Lindemeier, Thomas; Pirk, Sören; Tautzenberger, Mark (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      In this paper we present and evaluate painterly rendering techniques that work within a visual feedback loop of eDavid, our painting robot. The machine aims at simulating the human painting process. Two such methods are ...
    • Integrarte: Digital Art Using Body Interaction 

      Castro, Barbara P.; Velho, L.; Kosminsky, D. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      This paper emphasizes the participation of the whole body in the interaction process in art, which becomes essential in the development of new insights and artistic expressions. We approach the postmodernism and the ...
    • Random Discrete Colour Sampling 

      Lieng, Henrik; Richardt, Christian; Dodgson, Neil A. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      Apparently-random distributions of colours in a discrete setting have been used by many artists and craftsmen in the past century. Manual colourisation is a tedious and difficult process. Automatic colourisation, on the ...
    • SAMBA: Steadied Choreographies 

      Rossignac, Jarek; Luffel, Mark; Vinacua, Alvar (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      Given the start positions of a group of dancers, a choreographer specifies their end positions and says: ''Run!'' Each dancer has the choice of his/her motion. These choices influence the perceived beauty (or grace) of the ...
    • Sketches by Paul the Robot 

      Tresset, Patrick A.; Leymarie, F. Fol (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      In this paper we describe Paul, a robotic installation that produces observational sketches of people. The sketches produced have been considered of interest by fine art professionals in recent art fairs and exhibitions, ...
    • Surface Covering Curves 

      Xing, Q.; Akleman, Ergun; Taubin, Gabriel; Chen, J. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      In this work, we present the concept of surface covering curves that can be used to construct wire sculptures or surface textures. We show that any mesh surface can be converted to a single closed 3D curve that follows the ...
    • A Technique for Art Direction of Physically Based Fire Simulation 

      Bangalore, Ashwin; House, Donald H. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
      This paper presents a new approach to the art direction of individual flames in a physically based fire simulation. Fire, due to its warm colors and constant movement, often becomes the main attraction to the viewer's eye ...
