We present a method for computer generated pen‐and‐ink illustrations by the simulation of stippling. In a stipple drawing, dots are used to represent tone and also material of surfaces. We create such drawings by generating an initial dot set which is then processed by a relaxation method based on Voronoi diagrams. The point patterns generated are approximations of Poisson disc distributions and can also be used for integrating functions or the positioning of objects. We provide an editor… 
Beyond Stippling 
— Methods for Distributing Objects on the Plane
TLDR
An extension of Lloyd's Method enables us to position small objects on a plane in a visually pleasing form that allows us to generate new illustration styles.
Weighted Voronoi stippling
TLDR
An iterative technique acts on input images directly to produce high-quality stipple drawings and a real-time approach uses precomputed dot distributions to stipple images quickly.
EFFICIENT STIPPLE RENDERING
TLDR
The approach does not rely on any surface parameterization nor do point primitives have to be used to render the patterns, and by introducing a non-linear gamma-function, charcoal or pen and ink like effects can be achieved.
Automatic Generation of Stippling Illustrations from two Photographs
TLDR
A software tool that is able to reconstruct the depth field of the objects from two photographs and to obtain a pseudo 3D model and what are the interesting elements in the photographs and stipple them in different ways is presented.
Graph-based point relaxation for 3D stippling
TLDR
This work proposes a graph-based token distribution approach, where a graph that extends over the surface of the polygonal model is used as the playing field for the distribution of points, and shows how 3D stippling is used to render transparent surfaces and illustrate complex animations.
Precise Ink Drawing of 3D Models
TLDR
This work presents a system for non‐photorealistic rendering of precise drawing strokes over dense 3Dtriangle meshes with arbitrary topology, and demonstrates precise Drawing strokes over complex meshes revealing a variety of shape characteristics.
Halftoning and Stippling
TLDR
A simple optimization scheme allows computers to imitate the artistic process quite well and allows users not only to create other forms of illustrations but also to generate mosaics.
Hardware-Accelerated Interactive Illustrative Stipple Drawing of Polygonal Objects Vision , Modeling , and Visualization 2002
TLDR
An interactive system for stipple drawing of surface-based objects that provides illustrative stipple renderings of multiple objects and includes adaptation of the stippling to provide a consistent rendering of objects at any scale is presented.
Chapter 3 Halftoning and Stippling
One important origin of non-photorealistic computer graphics comes from printing technology. Halftoning is a reproduction technique for photography in printing. The continuous tones of the images are
Feature‐guided Image Stippling
TLDR
A novel dot placement algorithm which adapts stipple dots to the local shapes is introduced, to guide the dot placement along ‘feature flow’ extracted from the feature lines, resulting in a dot distribution that conforms to feature shapes.

An illustration technique using hardware-based intersections and skeletons
TLDR
A method for generating line drawings of complex geometries in the style of crosshatched illustrations by using predefined line styles to determine automatically the orientation of the intersection planes for a wide variety of models.
Rendering parametric surfaces in pen and ink
TLDR
The idea of “controlled-density hatching” for conveying tone, texture, and shape is introduced and the fine control over tone this method provides allows the use of traditional texture mapping techniques for specifying the tone of pen-and-ink illustrations.
Computer-generated pen-and-ink illustration
TLDR
“stroke textures,” which can be used for achieving both texture and tone with line drawing, are introduced, which allow resolution-dependent rendering, in which the choice of strokes used in an illustration is appropriately tied to the resolution of the target medium.
Orientable textures for image-based pen-and-ink illustration
We present an interactive system for creating pen-and-ink-style line drawings from greyscale images in which the strokes of the rendered illustration follow the features of the original image. The
Interactive pen-and-ink illustration
TLDR
By removing the burden of placing individual strokes from the user, the illustration system makes it possible to create fine stroke work with a purely mouse-based interface and holds promise for bringing high-quality black-and-white illustration to the world of personal computing and desktop publishing.

TLDR
A technique is presented for line art rendering of scenes composed of freeform surfaces, creating a unified line artrender method for both parametric and implicit forms, and exposes a new horizon of special, parameterization independent, line art effects.
