This paper presents a model to reconstruct 3D virtual humans based on a single and spontaneous image. The main goal is to use computer vision and pattern recognition techniques to build coherent virtual humans according to an input picture. To achieve this goal we provide a semi-automatic process that includes 3D posture detection, segmentation of human(More)
