Handwriting Beautification Using Tokens Means

This paper proposes a general-purpose approach to handwriting beautification using a stylus. Given a sample of writings, drawings, or sketches from the same person, the method improves strokes in real time as they are drawn.

Real-Time Drawing Assistance Through Crowdsourcing

A corpus of aligned drawings via an iPhone game developed for the purpose of collecting drawing data. Based on analysis of this database of drawings, the paper introduces a simple method to improve
strokes in real time. Corrections appear nearly invisible to the user, preserving artistic intent while simplifying touch-based drawing.

Style and Abstraction in Portrait Sketching

Using a data-driven approach, this paper studies the style and abstraction of human face sketching. The authors analyzed the data at two levels (strokes and geometric shape) to capture both the style of the different artists and their process of abstraction. These are then used for a portrait-sketch synthesis application.

Topology‐Driven Vectorization of Clean Line Drawings

A two-steps vectorization algorithm specialized for clean line drawings that analyzes the drawing's topology in order to overcome junction ambiguities and produce more faithful centerlines.

Interpreting Concept Sketches

Concept sketches are used by designers to convey pose and function of products. Understanding such sketches, however, requires special skills in reasoning in 3D, and hence such sketches often remain accessible to only a skilled few. This paper presents a system to facilitate easy interpretation and exploration of concept sketches.
