AbstractEstimating the 3D shape of an object using a single image is a difficult problem. Modern approaches achieve good results for general objects, based on real photographs, but worse results on less expressive representations such as historic sketches. Our automated approach generates a variety of detailed 3D representation from a single sketch, depicting a medieval statue, and can be guided by multi-modal inputs, such as text prompts. It relies solely on synthetic data for training, making it adoptable even in cases of only small numbers of training examples. Our solution allows domain experts such as a curators to interactively reconstruct potential appearances of lost artifacts.
