Color Block Image Filter

A Unity-based program I created to turn images into blocky, stylized images. The program takes in the base image and some hand-drawn outlines as input- and then uses the lines to divide the image into chunks of color.

In just an hour or two of outline-drawing, you can gets some visually rich, easily editable results!

Three image tests- including the base photo and outline inputs.

A city scene, with a fisheye effect applied after. Once photos have been simplified to shapes of color, they're much easier to convincingly edit.

A winter scene, with the shapes cleaned up by hand. In cartoon format, the image colors are much easier to convincingly tweak.
