This paper describes a nonphotorealistic rendering (NPR) system which produces jittery style drawings for computer animation. The system attempts to capture a set of low-fidelity animation conventions to produce rendered models that look hand drawn rather than machine interpreted. The conventions identified include distorted shell silhouetting, consistently random-effect model deformation, rotation capping and aspects of camera panning and zooming particularly relevant to NPR. The techniques are then evaluated subjectively with some 3D model exemplars and performance tests are reported.
