I had a look at the SVG file ; it contains ~11 656 lines (11 656 path with a single segment).
I tried StippleGen but it is limited to 10 000 stipples and gets really hard to work with that many points.
Was it generated with StippleGen ?
(I thought that the portrait may have been generated from a TSP stopped very quick [ie. when not optimal but visually appealing]).
Would you have some pointers to replicate what has been done for Virginia Woolf ?
Great thanks !
Note : I received (in France) my AxiDraw V3 in 5 days ! Props for that too !
This was not made by StippleGen, but with a similar program that we have written in Processing, which creates “string art” style drawings like that. We have not yet released the software — we are still tweaking it and it’s pretty rough around the edges — but if you (or any other AxiDraw owner) would like to give it a try at this early stage, we would be happy to put together a beta version that you can try out. Please use our contact form to make the request.
Also, secret StippleGen feature: press the ‘x’ key to increase the allowable stipple count. Just beware that things are slower (and less stable) with higher stipple count.
