Need, help, can somebody teach me how to convert an image into a cubic painting?
To my knowledge, there isn't an 'automatic' way to do this in Painter, but here are some high-level steps I can think of that would make this possible...
1. Open the Painting
2. Create a new layer. Press Ctrl/Cmd+F to open the fill dialog. Fill the layer with white. (for now that will cover your painting but we'll fix that later)
3. Go to Canvas > Virtual Grid > Virtual Grid Options
4. Change grid type to "Rectangular grid" and change the horizontal/vertical spacing to something that suits the resolution of your document. Consider changing the grid lines to a black color. Make sure "Draw Grid to selected Layer" is selected then click "ok"
5. You will see a bunch of grid lines on the white background on the new layer.
6. Go Select > Auto Select. Ensure 'using' is set to 'current color' and make sure your current color is set to white (the same white that you used to fill the layer with). Click "Ok"
7. Now you will have a grid-like selection. Save the selection via Selection > Save Selection.
From here, you can start to paint in each area of the grid. If you like, you can use blender brushes in each grid block. If you're having difficulty staying within the lines, consider using the rectangular selection tool in 'subtract from selection' mode to remove the squares around the area you are trying to paint. You can simply re-load the selection each time you paint a new area.
Again this is just my first idea on how to approach this..there may be other, faster ways but in the very least this would be very interesting and depending on the brushes you choose, a very artistic and engaging way to create such a mosaic!
Hi Stephen thank you sooooooo much and for your time too.
You're most welcome!
