Recently while surfing the internet I came across this post on imgur about supposedly named “Single unbroken line portraits”.
I thought this to be quite an interesting way to create an image and thought I would try it myself. However I am far too lazy to spend hours drawing squiggly lines all day! So I wrote a program that does it instead!!
This works by creating lines and varying the thickness based on the colour intensity at each point of the line.
Even better I made it work in colour as well by varying thickness by colour channel and using additive alpha blending with the colours.
Here is the code if anyone is interested!

This one is famous, by Claude Mellan, 1649.
This is very cool! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
