Being involved in graphic design, every now and again we see patterns and trends emerging. One of the big trends is low poly art, the art of taking a photo (or graphic piece), carefully tracing the contours and converting it into triangular shapes (forming polygons). The final stage is to painstakingly fill in every segment.

Your main focus should be the accuracy of your tracing and colour matching from the original images. It can be extremely time consuming, with the average art piece taking in excess of four or five hours! The example snake piece demonstrates the effort required to convert a photograph, if it actually was one originally.

We are a little biased though, as they are beautifully worth it. We love low poly art so much, we featured it throughout our website. Here are some creative examples of low poly art. Source: Pinterest.
