Thank you sir, for your comments, I'll come up with the presentation of
those plug-ins mentioned in the wiki page and algorithm for the
cartoonization plug-in soon.
    And for the project on algorithmic art, I took this project in my
current semester, I'll have to take the course Computer Graphics in my next
semester to complete the project. So far I haven't yet publish any paper.
