Summary: 
We propose a non-photorealistic rendering method for generating edge-preserving bubble images from gray-scale photographic images. Bubble images are non-photorealistic images embedded in many bubbles, and edge-preserving bubble images are bubble images where edges in photographic images are preserved. The proposed method is executed by an iterative processing using absolute difference in window. The proposed method has features that processing is simple and fast. To validate the effectiveness of the proposed method, experiments using various photographic images are conducted. Results show that the proposed method can generate edge-preserving bubble images by preserving the edges of photographic images and the processing speed is high.
