How to Polygonal


Recommended Posts

In exactly this kind by choosing Plugin XY: no way as far as I know.

 

You can try some plugins in combination to reach a similar effect, like some Mosaic Plugins, Gossamer, Edge detection or outline effects.

Oh Wow! Great pic @Red ochre. Hope you add that to your gallery. I tried for a few hours and gave up. The detail I was trying to mimic was the image breaking up into vectors.

Does this not show a clear example of the difference between paint (I'm not sure of the term (bitmap?) and vector graphics editing.

I know they are totally different.

Vector graphics to me is 3D editing to get that effect of the breakup.

But still a great piece of art. B)

Thanks Andrew!
Gossamer can be tricky to use as giving it too many points will make it very slow and create so many lines it obscures the desired effect.
I started with a scanned line drawing which I changed to black on a transparent layer using Two-tone threshold.
I then reduced the number of 'solid' black pixels by using 'Noise choice' on its transparency setting followed by Alpha threshold.
At this stage it should look like tea leaves along the path of the original lines.
These opaque dots can be coloured with Object2colour or even Gradients Galore with the 'on object only' button checked.
Then run Gossamer... if it takes too long, quit and go back and reduce the number of dots further.

As the lines are 1px wide it is also quite sensitive to the canvas size used.

 

Hope that helps a bit - I try to avoid writing tutorials!:D

You are a true man. The answer you gave me was my work. Thank you very much.
Thank you, Red ocher, for writing these codes. Your hands are healthy.

Andrew David - Good image - perhaps try reducing the maximum distance in Gossamer - just keep experimenting till you get what you're aiming for!;)
Seerose - lovely example of Cobweb!:trophy:
E.E.R. - will try to put something together. (Damn... thought I'd got away with brief instructions!):lol:
Loaded - thanks! I hope you can create an image similar to the example you posted.:)
