          Abstract

          We present three new machine learning based artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, which we have added to our parameterised computational painterly rendering framework and show their benefits in computational creativity and non-photorealistic rendering (NPR) of portraits. Traditional portrait artists use a specific but open human creativity, vision, technical and perception methodologies to create a painterly portrait of a live or photographed sitter. By incorporating more open ended creative, semantic and concept blending techniques, these new neural network based AI techniques allow us to better model the creative cognitive thinking process that human painters employ. We analyse these AI based methods for their operating principles and outputs that together along with our parameterised NPR modules can be relevant to the field of computational creativity research and computational painterly rendering.
