Abstract : Shape depiction in non-photorealistic rendering of 3D objects has mainly been concerned with the extraction of contour lines, which are generally detected by tracking the discontinuities of a given set of shape features varying on the surface and/or the picture plane. In this paper, we investigate another approach: the depiction of shape through shading. This technique is often used in scientific illustration, comics, cartoon animation and various other artwork. A common method consists in indirectly adapting light positions to reveal shape features; but it quickly becomes impractical when the complexity of the object augments. In contrast, our approach is to directly extract a set of shape cues that are easily manipulated by a user and re-introduced during shading. The main problem raised by such an approach is that shape cues must be identified in a continuous way in image space, as opposed to line-based techniques. Our solution is a novel view-dependent shape descriptor called Apparent Relief, which carries pertinent continuous shape cues for every pixel of an image. It consists of a combination of object- and image-space attributes. Such an approach provides appealing properties: it is simple to manipulate by a user, may be applied to a vast range of styles, and naturally brings levels-of-detail functionalities. It is also simple to implement, and works in real-time on modern graphics hardware.
