When people compare a computer-generated illustration to a hand-drawn illustration of the same object, they usually perceive differences. This seems to indicate that the two kinds of images follow different aesthetic principles. To explore and explain these differences, the authors compare texture stippling in hand-drawn and computer-generated illustrations, using image-processing analysis techniques.
