Manually Thresholded and then a lot of manual cleaning up.

Thansk Issabella, it's way more work than I expected and still there's so much more room for cleaning up.

Thats more like it ! <3

Yes, its a pain to clean it all up manually, thats why i stopped working on Nihei san :D
I did it in Inkscape with the node tool, deleting hundred of nodes, all zoomed in, loosing sense for the greater scale.

There must be an easier way, because im pretty sure this Ben Hito guy does his coverartwork in a matter of hours.
Its probably just theshholding and then manually drawing the simplified shapes.
Either with a tablet, or with a pencil on transparent paper or something.

I tried it, but i suck with the tablet (could be its not correctly set up) and getting the smoothing of the pencil tool right.

The scan and paint over it on paper with a pencil wasnt very successful either, i guess its a matter of practice.
Divides the amateurs from the pros.

Maybe try to imitate an existing example,like the Obama poster ?
Both, the Obey version and the original photo are easy to find on the web.

You did it in inkscape man, that's even more tedious with so many nodes. :fb_wow:
I just try to draw selections around groups of smaller shapes and then decide to fill them all in and then erase all the shapes that are outside of that selected area.
I couldn't imagine using paths since paths generally take me way longer to mess with.
PS. I just notice that that's twice the work, to draw and erase, when i could just be drawing like you said over top of a thresholded layer and i don't have to worry about shapes that aren't selected because they're not drawn so no need to erase. But yeah that sounds like a really good approach to this form of art.

Yes, because its very much a vector effect.

You get those simplified shapes when you draw a jiggly line with a smoothing effect attached to it in Adobe Illustrator (or Inkscape).

The smooth stroke option (for the brush) in Gimp does something similar.


I came up with the whole layermask process when i tried to deconstruct the Hope Poster.
All you have to do is simplify the thresholded shapes by tracing them somehow.

Much happier with this one.
Just drew/traced on new layer over top of thresholded layer and then turn the thresholded layer invisible when done.
