Brightness values of images as 3D topology with Python

By silviodc, 5 February 2019

I am still not sure why exactly, but yesterday an idea came to my mind at did not let it go until I wrote a small python script to make it happen.
The idea was inspired by some Art of 3d cubes showing an image, minecraftstyle, where the topology was defined by the color brightness.

It is fun to play around with images like this 🙂

And even Lenna approves it 😉

BTW: you can find the short sourcecode on my Github page.

It is a very short and simple script but I had some fun with it. There is huge space for improvement, so do not hesitate pushing new code into this repository 😉
