Learn Drawing like the Machine from the Machine


About This Topic

Develop a desktop application that is able to load an image, convert it to a line drawing and apply it as background of a drawing canvas. Then, the user should be allowed to re-draw the image with a pen of a different color and different width. Eventually, the quality of the user drawing is assessed and - if good enough - the process can be repeated with less hints from the system, i.e. some edges are removed. This process is iterated as long as the user is able to draw the input image (given in a sepearate window) without the aid of a line drawing. If done as a diploma thesis, the app should be tested on a sample of students and the improvement of their drawing ability should be evaluated. Requires good programming skills and knowledge of similarity measurement for shapes (e.g. active contours + Hausdorff distance application).
