I’ve been doing some over photo illustration, using just triangles. Time consuming, fairly tedious, but I like the results.
And even though I’ve used Illustrator for almost 30 years, I learned a few new tricks doing this. Namely a way to find out how many elements are in use, and a way to quickly and easily close any paths that might not be closed.

The process. 4249 triangles, 13,144 points. Somewhere between 30 and 40 hours of work.
