Abstract

Chinese calligraphy synthesis is important meaningful to protect non-heritage cultural and augmented reality. In this paper, we proposed an algorithm of Chinese Calligraphy synthesis based on examples. First, we construct a stroke library represented by vector. Second, we obtain the trajectory of character stroke from the digital tablet input, and match the most similar character stroke from the stroke library and replace the trajectory with it. Third, we evaluate the style using recurrent neural networks (RNNs). We also propose a new model to describe Chinese character topology by 9-intersections & range relation (9IRR) according to experience. Finally, we employ simulated annealing strategy to optimize the Chinese character topology with aesthetic requirements. Experimental results show that character shapes generated are visual pleasing.
