Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose a system named ETIS (Energy-based Tree Illustration System) for automatically generating tree illustrations characteristic of two-dimensional ones with features such as exaggerated branch curves, leaves, and flowers. The growth behavior of the trees can be controlled by adjusting the energy. The canopy shape and the region to fill with leaves and flowers are also controlled by hand-drawn guide lines.
