Hair plays an important role in the image of the human face. However, it is still difficult and time consuming to synthesize realistic 3D CG hair images. In this paper, we present an integrated system for 3D computer graphics (CG) hair image synthesis based on a trigonal prism wisp model. By applying the trigonal prism wisp model, 2D hair distribution maps and other CG techniques to our system, we can successfully and efficiently synthesize realistic CG hair style images. A 3D hair style editing tool (HET) is incorporated into the system to support the creation of 3D hair styles. We have also integrated this system with other research results to construct a system for 3D CG character synthesis.
