Pointillism flea

Pointillism is a form of impresionism leade by 
Georges Seurat: 


The style consist of thousands of well positioned paint dots whitch at a distence formtogether in the eye and blend to create the desierd color, but up close it just looks like a lot of dots. Much like the pixels on a screen work only using a different color theory. Paint is subtractive color theory and pixels/ light is addative.

Most famous painting:


So with that being sed isnt every image displayed on a screen Pointillism? yes but for the purposes of this test we will try to make it look more painterly.

I used the model from the flee game i worked on during the summer before it changed art style and turned pixel art:
So i too have seen an art change in the prosess of making a game.


Early3d model


Changed to pixel art



Flee Pointillism  test, still needs work and would be verry hard to play a whole game with this style.


and heres the node setup for the second flee from the left


It uses a blakc and white mask made from a sheet of oil pastel dots i drew.
the rgb slider gives me controll of the size of dots for the full image.


Heres the texture i used to animate and its been desatureated



I would like to work on this test more to find a way to make the dots bigger when they are in shadow. causeing the highlights to be made from the chite paper/bg showing through.
