Fontender: Interactive Japanese Text Design with Dynamic Font Fusion Method for Comics
Comics consist of frames, drawn images, speech balloons, text, and so on. In this work, we focus on the difficulty of designing the text used for the narration and quotes of characters. In order to support creators in their text design, we propose a method to design text by a font fusion algorithm with arbitrary existing fonts. In this method, users can change the font type freely by indicating a point on the font map. We implement a prototype system and discuss its effectiveness.
