Beyond Photorealism

  • Stuart Green
Part of the Eurographics book series (EUROGRAPH)

Abstract

For around 30 years the computer graphics research community has pursued photorealism as though it were the ultimate form of visual expression. Yet, as an art form, photorealism is one of many abstractions that an artist might use to convey ideas, shape, structure, emotion and mood. In this paper we describe how techniques and wisdom learned from photorealistic computer graphics can be adapted and applied to a diverse range of alternative styles for visual expression.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
