CONTOUR005 helps deconstruct the currently selected source photo in Photoshop down to 36 shades of grayscale vector shapes, each with a preset opacity setting that helps better simulate the gradients where the vector shapes overlap. The final result is a vectorized illustration of the source photo which has a distinct vexel art style, but with actual vector shape contours. Although limited to wroughly 36 vector shape layers, there is enough detail supplied to represent a vector portrait convincingly. Each vector shape layer can be individually modified to make small changes to the contour lines or the designer can flatten the results for use as a template to trace within Illustrator. While this Stipplr Action only generates a grayscale contour-map style result, it is quite trivial to obtain a colorscale version to better simulate a vexel art result — for details on how to do this please browse through the tutorial section on this site.
