Efficient Coding of Stroke-Rendered Paintings
There are more and more applications of nonphotorealistic rendered images, sketches and drawings. Several techniques for generating such imagery are widely known. The stochastic painting-based painterly image (and video) generation presented herein is a multipurpose image rendering and representation method, suitable for many purposes: painterly rendering, storing, compression or indexing. It incorporates many new features like multiscale edge following, stroke-set optimizations, templates, color morphology, etc. We will demonstrate that the presented technique (called enhanced Stochastic Paintbrush Transformation or eSPT) is suitable for fast high quality painterly rendering, providing good lossless painted compression ratios and features that make it suitable for many applications.One of these we wish to emphasize is the suitability to code painted images in a way that does not introduce any coding artifacts (blockiness, ringings, etc.) but provides a compact form of representation ...
