Abstract

Texturing plays an extremely important role in computer graphics. They may for example give flat objects colour patterns and depth or roughness. However it is often difficult to find or create fitting textures for a geometry or surface. Creating textures by hand can prove extremely difficult as problems with seams or distortion may occur, which make the texture look unrealistic. In order to counter these problems many different kinds of texture synthesis have been developed among which procedural textures hold an important position.

The types of texture synthesis methods vary from example-based synthesis to procedural noise, cellular textures and more, which can produce a wide array of different results.

The aim of this paper is to introduce the reader into related topics of texture synthesis and to introduce a method for generating cellular brick pattern textures that represent brick bonds that are used in real architecture taking correct handling of wall and window borders into consideration. The method uses few parameters to control the synthesis process. In addition a method for generating random stone patterns is introduced.
