We proposed a non-photorealistic rendering method for generating stripe-patchwork images from photographic images. The proposed method generates stripe-patchwork images by an iterative process using entropy and inverse filter. The proposed method has two characteristics that stripe-patchwork patterns can be automatically generated in accordance with the shading and the edge of photographic images, and the types and width of stripe-patchwork patterns can be adjusted by varying the value of the parameter in the proposed method. In order to verify the performance of the proposed method, we conduct experiments by using Lena gray-scale image and other photographic images. In this experiment, we investigate the visual effects of stripe-patchwork images when changing parameters in the proposed method.
