Exaggerated Shading for Depicting Shape and Detail
An interactive non-photorealistic 3D renderer that conveys shape while emphasizing detail at all surface orientations. It adjusts the light direction locally and combines non-linear shading computations across scales.

Image Enhancement by Unsharp Masking the Depth Buffer
This method uses the difference between the depth buffer and a Gaussian filtered version of the depth buffer to determine spatially important edges in a rendered image. Colors, contrast, and other properties of the image can then be enhanced.

Manga Colorization
Manga employs rich amounts of screening and hatching that make computer-aided colorization difficult. This paper proposes a pattern-based colorization to colorize black-and-white manga while retaining the original artists' style.

Real-Time Video Abstraction
An automatic real-time abstraction framework to produce cartoon-like videos. This work is based on several image-processing algorithms that have been modified for parallel implementation, extensibility, and increased temporal coherence.
