CUFS (CUHK Face Sketch Database)

CUHK Face Sketch database (CUFS) is for research on face sketch synthesis and face sketch recognition. It includes 188 faces from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) student database, 123 faces from the AR database [1], and 295 faces from the XM2VTS database [2]. There are 606 faces in total. For each face, there is a sketch drawn by an artist based on a photo taken in a frontal pose, under normal lighting condition, and with a neutral expression.
