In this paper, we propose a method for beautifying online handwriting characters. First, we introduce a formalization description of the handwriting's topological structure and strokes. Then, in order to beautify the spatial arrangement and strokes of the input character, we capture the writers' stability factors for the topology and strokes of their handwriting, and select a suitable topological structure and strokes from users' handwritten samples, using the “roulette wheel" method. In addition, we analyze certain classical stroke connection types as described in calligraphy theory, and determine which strokes need to consider visual effects. Finally, we apply curve fitting to optimize the stroke relations in order to generate a final result that meets the calligraphy aesthetics requirements.
