Lowpoly-fing Images?

Recommended Posts

Usually they're not made low-poly, they're built that way in a 3D image editor. I don't know of an easy way to do it in Paint.NET, though maybe a plugin could be built to do it.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

If you have enough time and patience, you can do it "relatively" easy self like this:
  1. Clone the layer with the original image.
  2. Use the plugin "Segment Image".
  3. Create another layer and draw with the line tool your own polygons.
  4. Use the Color Picker with 5x5, 11x11 or more pixels for an average value in the second layer, turn to the polygon layer and fill the corresponding triangle with color.

Later if finished you can delete the layers under the polygon-layer.
