Sketch-based image retrieval (SBIR) is gaining increasing popularity because of its flexibility to search natural images using unrestricted hand-drawn sketch query. Here, we address a related, but relatively unexplored problem, where the users can also specify their preferred styles of the images they want to retrieve, e.g., color, shape, etc., as keywords, whose information is not present in the sketch. The contribution of this work is three-fold. First, we propose a deep network for the problem of style-augmented SBIR (or s-SBIR) having three main components - category module, style module and mixer module, which are trained in an end-to-end manner. Second, we propose a quintuplet loss, which takes into consideration both the category and style, while giving appropriate importance to the two components. Third, we propose a normalized composite evaluation metric or ncMAP which can quantitatively evaluate s-SBIR approaches. Extensive experiments on subsets of two benchmark image-sketch datasets, Sketchy and TU-Berlin show the effectiveness of the proposed approach. © 2020 IEEE.
