<p><it>Abstract</it>—The 2D fractional Brownian motion (fBm) model provides a useful tool to model textured surfaces whose roughness is scale-invariant. To represent textures whose roughness is scale-dependent, we generalize the fBm model to the extended self-similar (ESS) model in this research. We present an estimation algorithm to extract the model parameters from real texture data. Furthermore, a new incremental Fourier synthesis algorithm is proposed to generate the 2D realizations of the ESS model. Finally, the estimation and rendering methods are combined to synthesize real textured surfaces.</p>
