Single-View Hair Modeling Using A Hairstyle Database

A data-driven method for modeling of realistic and complex 3D hairstyles from a single reference photo. The approach requires only a few 2D user strokes as the guidance and can handle various challenging cases by leveraging a hairstyle database that consists of 343 manually created 3D examples.

SecondSkin: Sketch-Based Construction of Layered 3D Models

SecondSkin, a sketch-based modeling system focused on creation of structures comprised of layered 3D volumes, processes drawn strokes interactively and converts them to 3D curves on and around underlying 3D geometry. Curve loops are automatically surfaced and turned into volumes bound to the underlying layer.

BendFields: Regularized Curvature Fields From Rough Concept Sketches

A method to estimate curvature directions and surface normal from rough concept sketches. This 3D information allows the sketch to be enriched with 3D-looking shading and texturing.

Flow-Aligned Surfacing of Curve Networks

This paper computes surface-matching human perception for a sketched curve network by first finding the characteristic flow lines of the curve network and then maximally aligning the principal directions of the variable surface to a flow field that smoothly interpolates the flow lines.

Topology-Constrained Surface Reconstruction From Cross-Sections

Reconstructing surfaces from either parallel or non-parallal planar cross-sections remains a challenging problem that has important applications in many fields including biomedical analysis. This paper presents the first algorithm that allows global topology control.
