Recently, deep learning based 3D face reconstruction methods have shown promising results in both quality and efficiency. However, training deep neural networks typically requires a large volume of data, whereas face images with ground-truth 3D face shapes are scarce. In this paper, we propose a novel deep 3D face reconstruction approach that 1) leverages a robust, hybrid loss function for weakly-supervised learning which takes into account both low-level and perception-level information for

Our method is fast, accurate, and robust to occlusion and large pose. We provide comprehensive experiments on MICC Florence and Facewarehouse datasets, systematically comparing our method with fifteen recent methods and demonstrating its state-of-the-art performance.
