In this study, we focus on the facial expression of a deformed avatar and develop an average facial color image avatar system based on dynamic facial color and expression to facilitate the analysis by synthesis of an affect display. This is achieved by controlling the parameters of a proposed dynamic facial color model and analyzing the extent to which dynamic facial color with emphasized color tones is suitable for the representation of a laugh. The effectiveness of the system is demonstrated by sensory evaluation. The application of this system in emotional interaction could support psychological experiments related to perception and recognition, based on dynamic facial color and expression.
