Unold, Olgierd: Troc, Maciej: Curve, Draft, and Style: Three Steps to the Image. In: EvoMUSART 2007, S. 601-608.



This paper introduces a new evolutionary model of the art and design process. The whole process of interactive image creating was decomposed into three steps: evolving the Bezier curve, evolving the geometric transformations of the curve, and evolving the style of painting it. A model was implemented, and a series of promising experiments was performed.
