We present an algorithm for rendering subdivision surface models of complex scenes in a variety of artistic styles using an interactively editable particle system. The algorithm is suitable for modeling artistic techniques explicitly by the user, or automatically by the system. Our approach can simulate a large number of artistic effects due to the fact that almost any type of mark made on paper or canvas can be imitated. Any of our artistic effects is customizable by the user through a particle editing interface. The algorithm maintains complete frame-to-frame coherence, a characteristic required for good animation, and runs at interactive rates on current computer graphics workstations.
