A Simple Framework for Face Photo-Sketch Synthesis

Figure 7

Face photo-sketch synthesis results: (a) the background of the cropped images in CUHK database is simple; (b) our method illustrates the hair and facial feature more accurately, especially the profile of the face; (c) in order to get the better effect, we smoothed (b) by simple enhancing method; (d) the artist draws the face sketches with some exaggerations, such as nose bridge and mouth edge; (e) in the synthesis results of Tang’s method, obviously, face profile is defective, and some of the important marks, such as the mole in the fourth man’s face, are lost; (f) Zhang’s method draws the facial features, eyes, and mouth and so forth, with some distortion in size and shape.
