Artistic Line Rendering of 3D Models


Title: Artistic Line Rendering of 3D Models
Author: Lauren D. Bhagwandat
Course: CISC 499

Description: Non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) generates stylized images that attempt to imitate traditional 2D artistry. A particularly challenging area in NPR is producing line rendering of 3D models in order to effectively portray feature contours in a visually appealing manner. This project presents an efficient algorithm for real-time line rendering of 3D models that programmatically achieves varying thickness based on artistic rules often used in illustration.
