I had a look at Krita to see if this would be possible. Sadly, it looks not so.
Got
  • Filter layers (same thing as adjustment layers).
  • Has levels, colour adjustment layers.
  • Has generated layers to fill the dither pattern.
Not
  • No posterize.  :o
  • No gradient mapping.

Haha, no I don't know anybody that has Photoshop (around $500 right?). I understand the process is nondestructive in Photoshop, I just figured GraphicsGale might have a "destructive" equivalent way, since GIMP disables AA brushes when the colors are indexed.

EDIT: Krita looks interesting, like a Photoshop + Sketchbook (the android app) approach. I'll have to try it out sometime.

Sooo close!  It's open source so somebody get on that!

a wild feature request topic appeared at kriya =O

I figure we can use that as a hub for whenever any coder feels like supporting that.

This is a really cool trick, and it can work with normal paintings a little bit too (though with less controlled results)
Tried it with this painting (shrunk down a lot first and didn't apply the gradient map)
Also my art tumblr: ymedronart.tumblr.com

Took like a 6 year old piece and started fudging around for a few minutes with the new method.  Back then I started this piece as a sort of impressive feat.  Now it's not all too impressive.

old -> New

Looks pretty awesome indigo! It doesn't matter the process, as long as you get to the end result IMO. I myself still pixel pretty slow, but I think it's either my process (aka, no process) or I over edit any little change  ::)

A little off topic, but if anybody knows any tutorials for creating pixel art (by that I mean different creation methods: grayscale, larger brush to rough it out, etc...) Feel free to send me a PM,  I pretty much know the rest by heart, but I'm curious on the steps you guys take to make pixel art.  ;D

Notified this thread!  Really interesting!  Is it possible if something like this could be done in Gimp perhaps?  ;)

Looks like there's been some movement on the Krita front: http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=156&t=120742#p309044

Tijjer: Gimp should be able to manage the end result, but can't manage the workflow.
