(12:45 PM) I made a program last Monday/Tuesday. An autopainter app, you give it a reference image and it tries to recreate it using brush strokes.

It was heavily based on Serpent.AI's python program that he showed off on stream last month, so I pretty much have to credit him for the whole idea and some details of how it works. I have a hard time understanding the code he showed on stream (it's not bad code, my baby brain just didn't know what to do with what I was seeing), but I wanted to challenge myself to make it with what I did know. No OpenCL and slow with large images, but at least it works.

I've mostly used it for shitposts so far, though.

There are options for how many iterations (and what brush sizes to use), palettes (using the exact palette or simply hue-shifting toward it) and "color distance threshold" which is basically how different part of the canvas needs to be from the input image before it'll be painted on.
