Using simple bitmap sketches to make 3D characters in video games look more realistic

What’s the best way to get 3D characters in videogames to look real and expressive? Two computer scientists at Université de Montréal have come up with answer: use simple bitmap sketches to make their poses more lifelike.

The duo’s study is published on July 22 in ACM Transactions on Graphics. We asked them to tell us more.
