Abstract

This report presents a grammar for the procedural modeling of humanoid characters and poses based on CGA shape, a shape grammar for computer generated architecture. Various models can be derived with the same set of parametrized rules for geometric operations, and include a skeletal system for posing. The main part of this report defines basic rules and their effect on shapes and skeletons and discusses the results of an actual implementation of the grammar with examples.
