Abstract

In this paper, we focused on the characteristic gestures which producing the sense of realism and intimacy in web communication using 3DAgent, and proposed the gesture exaggeration mechanical model which representing the "reservoir (Tame)" or "deciding actions (Kime)" effectively in Anime and Kabuki. By analyzing some tens of gestures including the natural motion and exaggerating one which had same start and end positions, we obtained the following results. The degree of exaggeration of behavior can be expressed mechanically by the integral value of the joint torque. The ratio of the torque value GER between the portion containing the exaggerated behavior and other position has value within the certain range from 0.4 to 0.6. This value can be used as an indicator in determining the good balanced gesture exaggeration. Moreover, we found that the result could also be seen in the case of exaggeration gestures used effectively such as the speech and presentation of famous persons, so we could determine the gesture exaggeration by GER.
