Abstract

We propose a method of deforming a human pose based on the rules of attractive poses. In our previous research, we proposed an approach for obtaining the rules of attractive poses from a set of attractive poses with a specific style and another set of unattractive poses by creating a decision tree based on the low-level pose features. In this paper, we propose a heuristic kinematics-based pose deformation method based on the discovered rules of attractive poses. The rules can be applied to any input pose with any specified scale. We evaluated our method through a user experiment. The results show that our method can deform a pose to realize a specified style, although not all rules are applicable to all kinds of poses and an appropriate style and deformation scale must be selected by the user.
