This paper proposes an automatic scheme for generating sketch-like pencil drawing from natural images. The proposed method consists of two main steps: a stroke emulating step to depict obvious outlines and a tone generation step for filling textures. In the stroke emulating process, a hierarchical edge detection method is designed to extract line segments with different resolutions, which simulates object contour drawn by artists using multiple strokes in different level of details. In the tone… CONTINUE READING
