Sergej Stoppel is the man behind this amazing algorithm. In his free time, he develops algorithms that turn images into drawings as seen below. “Results are always made with a single line or collection of lines of constant width that can also be drawn with a pen by a plotter,” says Sergej and continues: “So in a way I try to follow great computational artists like Georg Nees and Frieder Nake that started to create artworks with plotters.” This is one of his newest algorithms, and its purpose is to scribble drawings of any input image by firstly understanding the image and dividing it into patches with different structures and tone similarities. “While making the “drawing” the algorithm dynamically evaluates the image and adjust the drawing path according to the structures in the image (contours etc.) and the tone,” Sergej explains. If you are interested you can send Sergej any photo and receive back a perfect gift in form of a drawing scribble and all that can be done through his Etsy shop.

It transforms any image into drawing made with single line of constant width that can also be drawn with a pen by a plotter
Good example how the algorithm recognizes the border between the face and the shoulder.
