So after the obvious fap joke, we get to rasterbation part.
[Quote]Rasterbating and Rasterbation is the act of turning a regular digital picture you may have taken or found online and turn it into a huge poster. Most of the time by cutting up the image digitally and printing it out piece by piece to be put back together and form a large image.[/quote]
here are some tools used with Rasterbation:
[url]http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/[/url] - Takes some time and tedious if your trying to bet something spot on, but prints at full quality, no dots or any of that muck
[url]http://arje.net/rasterbator[/url] - What I use, it takes the image and makes it out of a bunch of dots, then puts it into a pdf file, very quick so if you need to troubleshoot like say, getting the correct max dot size number, its good for that, but only prints in those tiny dots, Who needs lines anyways?
Rasterbation gallery, Post your works for them to be added to the OP
My own little bit of Rasterbation
So go ahead! Rasterbate all day long, it's okay, I'm sure no priest or your ultra religious grandmother will yell at you (unless you're using their printer! :v:)

i wouldnt say so, that post i made in the OP is 33x32" in black and white, i don't make em in color cause i like to conserve as much as i can
[editline]12th June 2011[/editline]
but if you want to conserve ink, use the downloadable rasterbator in the op.
Would a mosaic still count as rasterbation?
Hey this looks cool! I might try it some day.
Is this hard to do? My room looks boring as fuck and this looks like a good way to spice it up a little.
This works better if you have photo paper instead of copy paper
This looks amazing, about how difficult is it to put together, say, a 5x8 set?
I did one of these years ago, it was blockposters but still.
I used this picture.
your wall is ready
I'm going to give this a go today, give me a chance to try out the wifi printing on my printer! :dance:
I used to go to the school library to print these cause I didn't want to waste my ink
I want that

Not "Difficult" at all, just a tad tedious if your going to be cutting off all the edges.
Holy shit I always wanted to do that, but never actually knew how it was called. Thank you Op!
I rasterbated a picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger on my wall. It's huge man.
Did one of these a few years ago. It's still in my bedroom.
I got everything I need to do this, but I need a good image.
I once did this [manually] for a friend of mine.
He's got a 36x14 panorama poster on his wall.
my walls are dangerously dull, so I might give [url=http://www.gfxbase.be/var/albums/Movies_TV/1288257957038.jpg?m=1290433194]this[/url] a shot.

people who don't know half-life 2 might think you're compensating
I actually wanted to do this with a picture of pedobear that I was going to put on the top of my school. But the entire thing is useless if satellite images of the area aren't being taken on that day.
Whats it called when you rasterbate, then masturbate to your work?

If you want to describe it, then; masturbating to a rasterbation.
My friend has a picture of themselves across their wall, I might do a picture for fun.
