​We propose a novel method to transfer sketch style at the stroke level from one free-hand line drawing to another, whereby these
drawings can be from different artists. It aims to transfer the style of the input sketch at the stroke level to the style encountered
in sketches by other artists. This is done by modifying all the parametric stroke segments in the input, so as to minimize a global
stroke-level distance between the input and target styles. To do this, we exploit a recent work on stroke authorship recognition
to define the stroke-level distance [SRG15], which is in turn minimized using conventional optimization tools. We showcase the
quality of style transfer qualitatively by applying the proposed technique on several input-target combinations.
