DIRECT TEXTURE SYNTHESIS OF FEATHER PIGMENTATION PATTERNS

C. G. Franco, M. Walter

Abstract

Feathers present exquisite shapes and visual patterns. Just recently feathers have been addressed in computer graphics with realistic-looking results. Current solutions, however, make use of texture mapping for adding the visual patterns seen on feathers. In this paper we present an integrated model for direct texture synthesis of feather pigmentation patterns. The model uses Be´zier curves to model the feather shape and procedural MCLONE patterns for the synthesis of feather pigmentation patterns. We show that the Clonal Mosaic model (MCLONE) is a viable option for direct texture synthesis of the many pigmentation feather patterns found in Nature.
