I'm currently exploring some new ideas based on the brushstrokes algorithm. I've changed the way the brushstrokes are placed and added a new 'overlap' concept in the code. That way I can choose how much the various brushstrokes are allowed to overlap each other.
It's still early days and the results are not yet completely convincing, but I think I am on an interesting track. Here is an example:
I'll keep you posted as I make progress, so stay tuned!
All the best,
