Computer Scientists have been inspired by artists to develop many non-photorealistic rendering techniques that can take an input image and produce a wide variety of artistic effects such as oil painting, watercolour, pointillist, etc. Their application can simply be for fun (e.g. to make consumer photographs more interesting), but there are also many other applications such as scientific visualisation, film production effects, technical illustration, etc.

My talk will overview several NPR techniques, developed by myself and Yu-Kun Lai, that aim to generate results that are relatively minimal rendering, in terms of using a combination of refined lines and regions and a small number of tones or colours. The aim is to achieve a rendering that is abstracted but retains sufficient elements from the original image so that (for example) it can be used to generate recognisable portraits.
