Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new algorithm for simplifying line drawing sketches. First, we segment the strokes at the points of large curvature if desired. Then, we perform a low-pass filter and use the result to assign a weight to every stroke. The strokes are moved to the position of the higher weight. After that, we find the stroke pairs and combine them to reduce the total number of the strokes, resulting in a cleaner line drawing art. This system also cuts down the disordered and confusing small strokes and combines them to form long strokes.
