The Brick Painter transforms any image (of a reasonable size) into bricks, for easy reproduction.
Created by Peter Craddock for his own LEGO-based reproductions of Magritte, Monet and Vermeer paintings, the Brick Painter has a limited colour palette - it only includes the colours that are available for 1x1, 1x2 and/or 1x4 LEGO plates through the LEGO.com webstore as of October 2014.
The end-result does not (yet) take into account limitations of LEGO plate sizes (e.g. "Earth green" is only available from the LEGO.com store in 1x4 plates, not 1x1 or 1x2).
However, the Brick Painter is open-source (see licence details in the footer) and may be modified by those who wish to improve it.
Peter Craddock and the Brick Painter are not affiliated in any way with any companies of the LEGO group.
