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.
