### Abstract

Figure 1: Creating a surface with spherical topology. a) Sketch mesh (22 faces) and first subdivision level mesh embedded in the spherical domain. b) Initial geometry of sketch mesh and resulting surface (129 overlapping surface patches). c) Geometry specifying the next hierarchical level (average patch overlap, 3.4) This geometry is created by drawing on the surface in b). d) The resulting surface, colored by hierarchical level. e) Editing the first hierarchical level to produce arms and legs. f) Adding and editing a second hierarchical level. We present a surface modeling technique that supports adaptive resolution and hierarchical editing for surfaces of spherical topology. The resulting surface is analytic, Ck, and has a continuous local parameterization defined at every point. To manipulate these surfaces we describe a user-interface based on multiple, overlapping subdivision-style meshes.
