What is Picture to People ?

"Picture to People" (P2P) is a huge Computer Graphics project. It was started to create new softwares able to make 2D drawing, 3D rendering, vexel drawing, text effects, photo effects, image filtering and other complex Computer Graphics operations. It has been made from scratch, including its low level Computer Graphics libraries like Maccala. Nowadays, most final features produced for this project are released as free online tools available from its official website. This blog talks about Computer Graphics, mainly concerning Picture to People development.

Vexel drawings from photos: example 1

Now my artistic vexel renderer is finished and very powerful.

As I desired, it's very configurable and let you get many different results. I have extended it to tackle RGB photos and generate colorful outputs.

For a while, I will post here some examples of vexel based drawings made with this renderer, one by one.

Since the idea is let you compare the several different results, I will always use the same input image.

Below you can see the input photo and the first example of vexel drawing.

More vexel drawing

I'm still working on my new artistic vexel rendering algorithm. I will take some more time to get it ready to use.

It's probably one of the more complex Computer Graphics algorithms I have created. I'm trying to make it with some interesting freedom degrees.

Here you can see another example of this technique in action.

New vexel rendering researches

Since some time ago, I create new math models and algorithms to vexel rendering. I make researches trying to discover new and innovative automatic ways to draw based on photos.

I'm inventing a powerful and versatile infra-structure that will let me to make very different, beautiful and mainly artistic drawings according to informations collected from photographies.

Here I show a preliminar result about my new researches. First you see a photo and after a vexel drawing based on this photo.

Vexel Drawings

Picture to People project proudly annouces the release of a vexel renderer.

Using your photos as input you can get nice "vexel made" drawings. While trying to keep all important informations of the original image, this kind of effect produces that beautiful "artificial looking" results. The vexel renderer has an interesting configuration level.

Below you see a photo and a vexel rendered version.

I intend to make more tools for vexel dealing when I have time.
