3 Animating character models from sketches Some work has also been done on the creation of animation using sketch based interfaces. In an early work, Librande  presents a system which learns an example space from a set of vector drawings. It can then produce the in-between frames by constructing an interpolation function on the example space. The animation generated by this system is in 2D. Thorne et al.  demonstrate motion doodles, a sketching interface for generating character motion.
Then, we find the best match of the pose of the character1, when seen from the recovered view direction, with the sketch by moving the skeleton embedded inside the mesh. The mesh model thus obtained is called a posed mesh model [see Fig. 5(d)]. The final stage deforms the mesh to match the silhouette of the model, as seen using the recovered camera, with the sketched character. The final mesh model is called a deformed mesh model [see Fig. 5(e)]. The final character pose, output at the last stage of the pipeline, together with the recovered camera is called the view-dependent model.
This process is repeated for every sketch the animator provides. The animator usually provides the sketches on paper. Then they are scanned into the computer. The pipeline works on these scanned sketches. The user clicks correspondences between the sketched pose and the skeleton joints. The skeleton joints are marked on the sketch. We can handle two broad categories of sketches. For sketches of the character, correspondences are very easy to specify as the user can locate the joints on the sketch easily and accurately [see Fig.
