This paper proposes a drawing tool recognition method based on features calculated from the shape of stroke endings. The application for this method is to help art historians to identify the drawing tool used for a drawing. Since the style of a drawing depends on the drawing tool used, drawing tool recognition is an important step toward a style analysis. A dominant feature of a drawn stroke is its ending. Several features regarding curvature, proportions etc. are calculated out of the shape of the endings. These features are then used to classify stroke endings with a SVM classifier.
