Abstract: In this paper we present an approach for synthesising and editing cartoon fire series based on hand-drawn samples. Our approach first extracts outlines of hand-drawn cartoon fire series and, based on the central reference skeleton, synthesises fire of arbitrary length by high level control on flame skeletons. With our approach users may edit cartoon fire series to achieve effects such as fire spreading and fire blown by wind from the side.

Keywords: cartoon fire; image synthesis; computer animation; hand drawings; flame skeletons; fire spreading; wind blown fire; cartoons.
