'Cuboids' - you can get an ointment for them! :D
A counterpart to 'Facets', turns an image into rectangular areas with added depth. The effect is adjustable between simple pixelating
and one point perspective images resembling tower blocks. With the nadir control at the edge of its range it can produce isometric or oblique projections too.

 

This is now in my v10 plugin pack here:Red ochre v10 plugin pack
Some example images below.
Please post any pictures you make with it in this thread!
Enjoy.

Thanks for posting the images Drew and Oceana! B)

Glad it works on Pdn4, Remake. Thanks for the feedback (the code is very close to that of 'Facet' so I chanced it!  ;) ).

Had you released this earlier, I would've used it to make my Cubist Self-Portrait. Oh well.............

I hadn't written it earlier! :lol:

 

Trying to make an image for that comp convinced me that this was worth writing! - I'm glad it was not available for the comp though, as there are some excellent imaginative entries with a more classically cubist look.

 

Thanks for posting the image too ;)

Many thanks for posting the image TR! (out of reps till later)

This one is very similar to 'facet' in the code, except that linear gradient brushes weren't needed.
Thanks again for your help on that one! B)

Agreed, that is a great look Sasha.

 

@Pixey, that is a great image. Very similar to some of the graffiti I've seen passing through NYC.

Good colour choices, gives it glassy feel with some early Mondrian in there too!

Thanks for posting the image ;)

After a member posted a question on how to produce dot-like photos, it suddenly dawned on me that this fantastic plugin can produce some cool dot-like or grid-like results. Here come my very first tries together with a few procedures I followed.

 

For the following pic I duplicate the layer and set the blend mode to Multiply, then run Cuboids twice on the higher layer at defaults, except for Face opacity set to 255 and Number of cuboids set to 4582:

 

Sophie_s_dot_like_photo_cuboids_face_opa

 

And for the next image I duplicate the layer and set the blend mode to Color Burn, then run Cuboids only once on the higher layer at defaults, except for Face opacity set to 0 and Number of cuboids also set to 4582 like before:

 

Sophie_s_dot_like_photo_cuboids_face_opa

 

Those are the settings I liked best for the dark photo above, but then I wanted to try something like glazed tiles on a lightly colored photo and here's what I got after a somewhat longer procedure that resulted in moderately beveled tiles (if anyone is interested I can provide the steps in detail):

The possibilities are endless and fun to play with if we consider the variability of results after trying different settings, playing with blend modes, and maybe adding further effects here and there (the experienced Paint.NET user won't need this comment, but I say it in case a newbie takes a peek and wants to play with this effect :)).

 

This is the first time I thank you for one of your plugins, Red. Super many thanks, Red! You're too good at being good! Laie_82.gif

Hi, just getting around to checking this one out.

 

I've only enlivened this rather boring image up a little. Liked that I can break up the straight lines. Haven't tried to make anything from scratch yet. :D
