Abstract

The objective of my research is to identify and analyze the techniques of exaggeration, simplification, and abstraction used by caricature and cartoon artists. I apply these techniques to an expressive 3D modelling process which is used to create building caricatures. This process minimizes the number of unimportant details and increases the recognizability of the buildings. Additionally, the building caricature process decreases the time spent modelling the buildings and reduces their overall file sizes. The building caricature process has been used to create other building caricatures, as well as interactive visualizations and 3D maps of the Texas A&M University campus.
