Primitive Zatoichi

Just messing around tonight with Primitive, a Mac program that rebuilds photos up from primitive shapes.  Here I've taken the moment in Zatoichi Challenged (at 6:57 here) when the samurai raises his sword but freezes, unable to strike down Zatoichi as he tries to to protect an innocent woman and child.  As the snow falls on them, the samurai - seriously wounded - is trapped between his duty to follow orders to kill these people, and his own humanity.

I ran the Primitive program with circles first to get the snow and broad outlines of the characters, then switched to triangles and small rectangles to put some definition in.  It's a fun program.
