Adobe Is Teaching Machines To Copy Your Artistic Style
A new research project called Stylit uses a camera to mimic a drawing and reproduce the strokes digitally
A new research project named Stylit by DCGI and Adobe Research looks to mimic your art style by applying it to 3D scenes and virtual worlds. By coloring in low-contrast, pre-determined objects on a paper using any medium of one’s choice (marker, watercolor, color pencil, acrylic paint or ink), a camera tracks the changes made and feeds them into an algorithm which transposes the colors, shadows and highlights of your image onto a new 3D figure. The result is a world inhabited by a character, all of which mirror the fine tuned strokes and palette applied to the paper in real-time.
