Karimov A.I., Ostrovskiy V.Yu., Butusov D.N. Theoretical and practical aspects of machine painting

Published in journal "Software systems and computational methods", 2016-4 in rubric "Computer graphics, image processing and pattern recognition", pages 403-414.

Resume: The article describes the technical, algorithmic and software components machine art system designed to automate the creation, reproduction and restoration of artistic images by simulating the method of mixing colors on the palette and brush application. The system consists of a robotic arm, which provides applying paint on the basis, and automatic palette - a special device for mixing paint and supplying the desired color mixture to the working tool of the robot, controlled by special software. The algorithms, used in the system of image processing, belong to the field of artificial intelligence. Mathematical and software components of the described system have been tested on a set of test images. An experimental stand was built work out the basic elements of the mechanical part of the system. During the study a new image processing algorithms along with specialized software and hardware have been created. For the first time software and hardware system for mixing paint for a single brush stroke has been developed. This automated palled allows implementing a full-color painting in fully automatic mode. The presented machine art system can be widely used in various branches of the fine arts, design, restoration, while creating paintings, murals, decorative design with technical objects, household items, light- resistant for durable printing and so on. In the future authors plan to create a system for large-format images and introduce a feedback system.

Keywords: non-photorealistic rendering, tinting, cybernetic art, color mixing, robotics, polygraphy, robotic painter, machine painting, brush stroke placement, artificial intelligence
