This post is part of, and my reply to, a discussion on the Scriptographer forum regarding how to emulate stippling. I have been thinking of a script like this for a long time – well, I’d say it’s more of a pseudo-stochastic raster than a stippler – but along the way, more and more problems have become apparent. Nevertheless, I wanted to be sure so I wrote a quick and dirty script to see how my theories would hold up.
I’ve already mentioned Vectoraster in an earlier post but I like it so much that I will push for it yet again! It has been updated with bug fixes and some minor feature additions. Still cheap, buy it!
Just updated this wonderful program to version 4.
Vectorraster 4 by Lost Minds is a great tool for anyone who wants to create beautiful vector-based rasters in all kinds of ways. It is user-friendly and allow for alot of experimentations by using text or custom shapes as raster dots. Well worth its $25 (Mac only) if you like to fiddle around with halftones.
