Abstract. In this paper, we propose an easy-to-use real-time method to simulate realistic deformation of human skin. We utilize the fact that various skin deformations such as wrinkles, bulging and protruding bones can be categorized into various deformation patterns. A deformation pattern for a local skin region is represented using a dynamic height map. Users of our system specify a region of the body model in the texture space to which each deformation pattern should be applied. Then, during animation, the…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
