> For the second issue, kook at the photo of the Asian girl with patterned skirt. A human cartoonist would most likely observe the regular grid pattern and replace it with thin lines, thereby communicating that all of it is one same thing. This algorithm, on the other hand, treats each tile of the pattern individually, thereby making it look more like a crystal or crumbled foil.

Something similar is going on with the photo of the merlion statue. The entire body is scaled, and a cartoonist would definitely represent that. But (because of lighting?), the algorithm renders the tail smooth instead of scaled.
