Appealing Female Avatars from 3D Body Scans: Perceptual Effects of Stylization. R Fleming, BJ Mohler, J Romero, MJ Black, M Breidt.

Date: March 2016. Source: Semantic Abstract: Advances in 3D scanning technology allow us to create realistic virtual avatars from full body 3D scan data. However, negative reactions to some realistic computer generated humans suggest that this approach might not always provide the most appealing results. Using styles derived from existing popular character designs, we […]

3D surface imaging of the human female torso in upright to supine positions. GP Reece, F Merchant, J Andon, H Khatam, K. Ravi-Chandar, J Weston, MC Fingeret, CR Lane, KS Duncan, MK Markey.

Date: April 2015. Source: Medical, Engineering and Physics, Volume 37, Issue 4, Pages 375–383. Abstract: Three-dimensional (3D) surface imaging of breasts is usually done with the patient in an upright position, which does not permit comparison of changes in breast morphology with changes in position of the torso. In theory, these limitations may be eliminated if […]
