We describe a non-photorealistic rendering method for generating paper mosaic images that takes into account and compensates for the effects of the thickness and texture of the paper onto which the image is projected. We modulate the brightness of the paper mosaic image on the basis of the emboss-filtered image of the overlapped pieces of paper. We also modulate the brightness of the paper mosaic image on the basis of the paper's texture. That is, we incorporate the effects of the paper's thickness and texture into the resultant paper mosaic image. We experimentally showed that our method increases the three-dimensional sense of depth in paper mosaic images.
