Example-based Rendering of Hand-drawn Content

Ing. Jakub Fišer, Ph.D.

supervised by:
doc. Ing. Daniel Sýkora, Ph.D.


In this dissertation, we focus on the capabilities of example-based synthesis with a particular interest in hand-drawn appearance. We propose several approaches for creating new digital imagery from examples without making any domain-specific assumptions and being media-agnostic. New methods for content-creation and non-photorealistic stylization are presented together with examples of their practical usage in contemporary digital production pipelines.
