Trying a new technique. Works essentially like my luminosity-tiler script, but instead of using layers filled with patterns, it uses layers filled with the same path rendered with increasing line widths.

Another version:
  • Straight paths along the top and bottom edges
  • Path-waves to make them wavy
  • Path-inbetweener  to generate the 101 intermediate paths
  • Path rendered on four layers (1,2,3,4 pixels)
   

As an attempt to remove to much regularity, I skewed the bottom path by half a wavelength. But this make some intermediate paths be straight lines. Not too visible on the full-scale image.

Slightly more density-accurate version. Also blurred the image a bit before using it as a mask.

Getting more accurate by adding intermediate line widths, starts looking good:

Almost fully scripted...

Continuing the binge. Now with little dots. It's to generate the complex paths with the adequate scripts.

Trying a new rendering technique, using fixed-width lines with dashes and variable dash ratio

   

Still some work needed to get more detail in the dark areas.

Interesting effects. That dog looks like it's outside a screen door wanting in. That top image, with concentric circles, dramatically bulls-eyes the man's head, giving the impression he's being targeted in someone's sights. None of the rest evoke a specific reaction, but it's cool to see possibilities.
