Abstract

Suibokuga is a style of monochrome painting characterized by the use of Chinese black ink (sumi), a complex interaction between brush, ink and paper, and such visual features as Noutan (shade), Kasure (scratchiness), and Nijimi (blur). In this paper we present a simple behavioural model of water and ink particles based on a 2D cellular automaton computational model, and its application to a Suibokuga-like rendering of 3D trees.
