Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We present a non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) method that is suitable for generating stained glass-like images. Conventional Voronoi tessellation (VT) is extended to bilateral VT (BVT), which preserves main edges in the original image. We also present bilateral centroidal Voronoi tessellation (BCVT) as a way of closely simulating the original appearance of the input image. This method has also been used to transform several example photographs into their stained glass-like images.
