In this paper, we propose a novel volume visualization system enabling local transfer function specification through direct painting or sketching on the rendered image, in a WYSIWYG style. Localized transfer functions are defined on scalar topology regions specified by the user. Intelligent and fast feature inference algorithms have been developed to convert user's input to the region specification and to achieve desirable feature styles with the local transfer functions. In our system, users can not only manipulate the color appearance of the object volume, but also apply style transfer and generate various illustration styles with a unified input gesture. Without manual transfer function editing and without parameter specification, our system is capable of generating informative illustrations that intuitively highlight user specified local features.
