Computer translates hand-drawn form modeling



Software engineers have been coming up with tools to make computer-generated forms look less like they were molded from plastic and more like they were drawn by hand.  (Link to YouTube)



StyLit is a new method previewed at SIGGRAPH that lets a user sketch out the light and shadow treatment on a simple form like a sphere. The software then translates that modeling information onto a more complex form in real time. The method could work not only for static illustrations but for animation.

I'm afraid at the pace they are automating everything, the only use we will have for hands in the 22nd century will be to open a bottle.

This is nothing to be afraid of, this is just another form of art.
