Abstract
Example-based face sketch synthesis technology generally requires face photo-sketch images with face alignment and size normalize. To break through the limitation, we propose a global face sketch synthesis method: In training, all training photo-sketch patch pairs are collected together and a photo feature dictionary is learned from the photo patches. For each atom of the dictionary, its K closest photo-sketch patch pairs are clustered, namely “Anchored Neighborhood”. In testing, for each test photo patch, we search its nearest photo patch in the Anchored Neighborhood determined by its closest atom, then the corresponding sketch patch is the output. By the same way, we train and test in the high-frequency domain and synthesis the high-frequency results. Finally, the fusion of the initial and the high-frequency results is the final sketch. The experiments on three public face sketch datasets and various real-world photos demonstrate the effectiveness and robustness of the proposed method
