Abstract

Image based painterly rendering has always had difficulty enforcing frame-to-frame continuity in animations. This paper lays out an approach that uses a form of optic flow to ensure continuity in the painterly rendering of 3D models characteristic of virtual environments. The proposed technique will be used to emulate the rock painting style of the San people of southern Africa.
