Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: Although we are in favor of turning our picture into cool looking effects like oil, watercolor and cartoon paintings, the relevant techniques still too elusive for non-professionals to master. In order to overcome such problems existed in the previous methods as complicated operation and model that do required professional experience, we propose an image filtering based method which can achieve image based non-photorealistic rendering for the amateurs to get the oil, watercolor and cartoon image effects efficiently. By analyzing and summarizing the digital characteristics and difficult technical points for the oil, watercolor and cartoon effects, we design an appropriate special visual effects filter for each of them to make the simulated effects vivid. According to our numerous experiments, the designed filters for oil, watercolor and cartoon effects are easy to use and can generate satisfactory non-photorealistic image rendering results.


Keywords: Filter design, Special visual effect, Oil painting, Watercolor painting, Cartoon painting.
