Like pixel art but with hexagons instead squares. Is there an online resource that allows me to drag and drop an image to get it converted into hexegons? Or at least something free app?

I got excited for a second but I guess the reply was from someone on my ignore list. Was it helpful or just evidence that they belong on my ignore list?

I've never heard of hexel art. And isn't all digital art pixel art? Art is so confusing

Apparently a lot of people haven't. Everything I try searching for just leads me to pixel art but I want a hexagon grid, not a square one. I'm finding hexel art galleries on pinterest but that's about it, no tools for converting an image myself.

This is for the opus magnum game, because it takes place on a hexagonal grid. I've thought about making a machine that uses that grid as a canvas to draw a picture on but I need a reference image so it doesn't look like s***.

Go ahead and use google to find what I'm asking for if it's that easy. I'll wait.

I was talking about the dude being an ass. I was saying this is gamefaqs and you were asking a question.

Closest thing I could find was something called http://grid-paint.com/

It doesn't convert for you but it does set up the hex grid for you. You could probably blow up a picture so that each pixel would be about the size of one hex and then painstakingly convert it, but that's a lot of work.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/39421233/convert-image-pixels-from-square-to-hexagonal

There's also this... but that seems to be a guy looking for something similar. They give him some answers but don't point to an easy resource.

Also I found this on reddit:
You could place such a grid over your image and use each hexagon to select an area of the image then use Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur to fill the hexagon with the average colour in the area. Repeat.
so maybe that might help some... Still involves work though

http://damienclarke.me/code/mosaic-maker Ok, this might work for you... but it's kinda rough...Maybe if you blow up the picture big enough this will allow you to do what you're trying to do... .
