In the field of computer graphics there is an increasing demand for non-photorealistic effects. Techniques have been developed to this end but most involve substantial runtime interaction from the user. This paper presents a new approach that uses statistical techniques to automatically and reproducibly generate non-photorealistic images. This automatic system could have far ranging uses, including frame by frame conversion of video to produce special effects. Information from the source image is obtained using statistical analysis techniques. Statistical simulations are used to control the placement of effects in the final image. The paper includes a number of example images produced by the system.
