Recent studies have shown that, with the help of complex network architecture, great progress has been made in estimating the pose and shape of a 3D human from a single image. However, existing methods fail to produce accurate and natural results for different environments. In this paper, we proposed a novel adversarial learning approach and studied the problem of learning graph attention network for regression. Graph Attention Residual Networks (GARNet), which processes regression tasks with graphic-structured data, learns to capture semantic information, such as local and global node relationships, through end-to-end training without additional supervision. The adversarial learning module is implemented by a novel multi-source discriminator network to learn the mapping from 2D pose distribution to 3D pose distribution. We conducted a comprehensive study to verify the effectiveness of our method. Experiments show that the performance of our method is superior to that of most existing techniques.
