Recent Submissions

  • Sketch and Shade: An interactive assistant for sketching and shading 

    Parakkat, Amal Dev; Joshi, Sarang Anil; Pundarikaksha, Uday Bondi; Muthuganapathy, Ramanathan (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    We present a drawing assistant for sketching and for assisting users in shading a hand drawn sketch. The augmented reality based system uses a sketch made by a professional and uses it to help inexperienced users to do ...
  • Characterizing User Behavior for Speech and Sketch-based Video Retrieval Interfaces 

    Altıok, Ozan Can; Sezgin, Tev k Metin (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    From a user interaction perspective, speech and sketching make a good couple for describing motion. Speech allows easy speci cation of content, events and relationships, while sketching brings in spatial expressiveness. ...
  • Modeling Go: A mobile sketch-based modeling system for extracting objects 

    Lai, Chun-An; Chiang, Pei-Ying (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    This article presents an easy to use mobile application which allows users to create 3D digital copies of their interested objects anywhere and anytime. An advanced 3-sweep modeling technique is developed to construct 3D ...
  • Shading with Painterly Filtered Layers: A Technique to Obtain Painterly Portrait Animations 

    Castaneda, Saif; Akleman, Ergun (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    In this manuscript, we describe a process that can be used to create still and/or animated portrait paintings to be shown in Expressive Art Exhibit. Our process consists of two stages: (1) Creation of control textures for ...
  • Context-aware Clustering and Assessment of Photo Collections 

    Kuzovkin, Dmitry; Pouli, Tania; Cozot, Rémi; Meur, Olivier Le; Kervec, Jonathan; Bouatouch, Kadi (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    To ensure that all important moments of an event are represented and that challenging scenes are correctly captured, both amateur and professional photographers often opt for taking large quantities of photographs. As such, ...
  • A taxonomy of motion applications in data visualization 

    Torre-Arenas, Irene de la; Cruz, Pedro (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    We propose a new taxonomy that explains the roles of motion in data visualization, focusing especially on their communicative aspects. Our taxonomy clarifies the main axis in how visualization designers can employ motion ...
  • Detail and Color Enhancement in Photo Stylization 

    Azami, Rosa; Mould, David (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    Abstraction in non-photorealistic rendering reduces the amount of detail, yet non-essential details can improve visual interest and thus make an image more appealing. In this paper, we propose an automatic system for photo ...
  • Organized Order in Ornamentation 

    Gieseke, Lena; Asente, Paul; Lu, Jingwan; Fuchs, Martin (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    Decorative ornamentation involves a careful balance between accent and order. Existing techniques leave artists either with tedious manual processes or the uncontrolled automatic generation of rather homogeneous patterns ...
  • Soft Shadow Art 

    Min, Sehee; Lee, Jaedong; Won, Jungdam; Lee, Jehee (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    Shadow art is a form of sculptural art in which the con guration of lights and sculptures cast 2D shadows for artistic e ect. Previous computational methods for the creation of shadow art assumes a single point light that ...
  • FlowBrush: Optical Flow Art 

    Kurzhals, Kuno; Stoll, Michael; Bruhn, Andrés; Weiskopf, Daniel (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    The depiction of motion in static representations has a long tradition in art and science alike. Often, motion is depicted by spatiotemporal summarizations that try to preserve as much information of the original dynamic ...
  • Polygons, Points, or Voxels? Stimuli Selection for Crowdsourcing Aesthetics Preferences of 3D Shape Pairs 

    Dev, Kapil; Villar, Nicolas; Lau, Manfred (Association for Computing Machinery, Inc (ACM), 2017)
    Visual aesthetics is one of the fundamental perceptual properties of 3D shapes. Since the perception of shape aesthetics can be subjective, we take a data-driven approach and consider the human preferences of shape aesthetics. ...
