  • 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 ...
  • Accurate and Discernible Photocollages 

    Miller, Jordan; Mould, David (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    We propose a system for arranging images from a database into a collage that resembles some target image. These collages exploit large scale visual correspondences between the target image and the images in the database. ...
  • Duotone Surfaces 

    Garigipati, Pradeep; Akleman, Ergun (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In this paper, we present a method to divide any given surface into two regions with two properties: (1) they are visually interlocked since the boundary curve covers the whole surface by meandering over it and (2) the ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Determining an Aesthetic Inscribed Curve 

    Wyvill, Brian; Kry, P. G.; Seidel, R.; Mould, D. (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    In this work we propose both implicit and parametric curves to represent aesthetic curves inscribed within Voronoi cells in R2. A user survey was conducted to determine, which class of curves are generally accepted as the ...
  • Developing a System of Screen-less Animation for Experiments in Perception of Movement 

    MacGillivray, Carol; Mathez, B.; Leymarie, F. Fol (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Experiments that test perceptual illusions and movement perception have relied predominantly on observing participant response to screen-based phenomena. There are a number of inherent problems to this experimental method ...
  • 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 ...
  • The aMotion Toolkit: Painting with Affective Motion Textures 

    Lockyer, Matt; Bartram, Lyn (The Eurographics Association, 2012)
    Visual artists and designers frequently use carefully crafted motion textures patterns of ambient motion throughout a scene to imbue the atmosphere with affect. The design of such ambient visual cues is an elusive topic ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
