This paper describes one method of constructing a para- metric human model for use in evolving humanoid character geometry. Interactive aesthetic selection is employed as a fit- ness function for producing successive populations of human models from an initial parametric human model constructed from a hierarchy of implicit surfaces. The parameters con- trolling the size, position, and orientation of groups of im- plicit surfaces are discussed, as well as the usage of a genetic algorithm within a 3D animation authoring package.
