Maps, portrait and Chalkboard

Just playing with map and portraits, inspired by the amazing works of Ed Fairburn

Not too much on the code side. I just create a flood fill function, so the program will pick up a random pixel and the fill the region around it. Although it feels more like photoshopping : Combine map image and the portrait using mask and blend modes. The code it self doesn’t alter the image at all. But I really enjoy watching the image being generated. Then I start to draw the map on my chalkboard wall, and the project these result on it, which looks really good.

And one of my colleague said that it will be interesting if the program could generate the city shape automatically, it reminds me the old substrate thing right away. I took a quick test and the result is very interesting as well. These are more like generate art to me, it still uses these portraits but could generate quite different result each time. There’s some more picture here.
