The modeling of natural shapes stays a hot topic to improve the realism in computer graphics. The complexity of these shapes is often hard to model with standard geometric tools and it can be very tedious for the CG artist. Growing phenomena are widely present in the nature. They usually generate complex shapes, even if the mechanics are simple. In most cases, modeling such shapes with physical simulators is not convenient because it is hard to control the result. In this thesis we propose a new kind of modeler (based on a growing surface) to generate growing shapes. The modeler has a set of controls on the resulted shape, and it is not limited to simulations of natural phenomena: you can interactively add details (e.g. folds, blisters or branches) to a surface.
