In applications such as architecture, early design sketches containing accurate line drawings often mislead the target audience [Schumann et al., 1996]. Approximate human-drawn sketches are typically accepted as a better way of demonstrating fundamental design concepts. To this end we have designed an algorithm that creates lines that perceptually resemble… (More)
In applications such as architecture, early design sketches often mislead the target audience [SSRL96]. Approximate human-drawn sketches are typically accepted as a better way of demonstrating fundamental design concepts. To this end we have designed an algorithm that creates lines that perceptually resemble human-drawn lines. Our algorithm works directly… (More)
Two-dimensional geometric texture synthesis is the geometric analogue of raster-based texture synthesis. An absence of conventional evaluation procedures in recent synthesis attempts demands an inquiry into the visual significance of synthesized results. In this paper, we report on two psychophysical experiments that explore how people understand notions of… (More)
In recent years, an increasing number of example-based Geometric Texture Synthesis (GTS) algorithms have been proposed. However, there have been few attempts to evaluate these algorithms rigorously. We are driven by this lack of validation and the simplicity of the GTS problem to look closer at perceptual similarity between geometric arrangements. Using… (More)
Inspired by the results of recent studies on the perception of geometric textures, we present a patch-based geometric synthesis algorithm that mimics observed synthesis strategies. Our synthesis process first constructs an overlapping grid of copies of the exemplar, and then culls individual motifs based on overlaps and the enforcement of minimum distances.
