The VoronoImage Gallery
In this page you will find a series of images obtained by using Mark Grundland's VoronoImage program on an input consisting of the image of my portrait imediately below. I hope you enjoy the paintings on display.
The original image.
Voronoi diagram with many points and small Voronoi cells.
Voronoi diagram with fewer points and slightly larger Voronoi cells.
Voronoi diagram with few points and large Voronoi cells. The generating points are uniformly and randomly distributed. Here, even if you squint your eyes you will not be able to recognize me.
Here there are fewer generating points still and they are arranged in an outward circular pattern. Hence my very neat tie! If you recognize me here, I will be insulted.
Here the generating points contain some strong symmetries. It starts looking like a Mondrian or Vassarelli painting!
Now ain't that a beauty? Another symmetrical set of generating points. It looks like me wearing a Darth Vader mask. My triangular tie is out of this world!
More complicated effects here using fractal Voronoi diagrams. The cells near the center of the picture are smaller than those on the outskirts. See Mark Grundland's page to get a more detailed explanation of this.
Yours truly with a punk haircut! Same as above but with larger Voronoi cells. A "cubist" portrait?
Same process as above but with color changes.
Another variant of the above process. The algorithm decided to endow me with a handle-bar moustache.
Same as above but with added smudging to give the effect of an oil painting.
