In recent years, non-photorealistic rendering has gathered interest as a technique of computer graphics. As a field of non-photorealistic rendering, researches have been studied actively to generate patterns such as labyrinth and stripe. We propose a non-photorealistic rendering method for generating cell-like color images that are overlaid with cell patterns in photographic color images. Our method generates cell-like color images by an iterative process using an inverse iris filter. To validate the effectiveness of our method, we conduct experiments on a color image of Lena by changing the parameters of the inverse iris filter visually. As an additional experiment, we apply our method to several photographic color images.
