More images from the protection dogs series. These all start by vectorizing an image and then using that as the source for a graffiti photo mosaic created using the Studio Artist paint synthesizer drawing with a movie brush.

These are some experiments where i start by vectorizing an image, and then use that transformed image as the source for a graffiti photo mosaic. The graffiti mosaic is created using the Studio Artist paint synthesizer and a graffiti movie brush.

Thought i'd paint a turkey since it's thanksgiving. We're headed out for Emu cooked turkey later today. Which basically means it was wrapped in aluminum foil and tossed in an underground fire pit overnight to cook.
I was kind of amused when i noticed what image comes up first if you do a google image search on turkey head.

This being a small island, it seems like all roads do indeed lead to Oneawa, home of the world famous Steak Rave. Generated from Flip video taken while driving, converted into a static panorama via the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker, with some vectorizer tossed in.

Back to the windward side island tour, which would not be complete without a stop at Yamashiros. Generated from a Flip video pan converted into a static panorama using the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker. Added some vectorizer in a second layer.

These two images randomly popped out while doing some testing of the new Studio Artist 4 Gallery Show features. Some of the gallery show techniques let you randomly mutate the presets used in the show which was the case for these 2 images.

More images from my new photo mosaic experiments. These were all created using the Studio Artist paint synthesizer with a graffiti movie brush. The bottom one was created from a live video shot off of an internal iSight camera.

I've been exploring new ways to work with photo mosaic style imagery in Studio Artist. This series was generated with graffiti databases where the graffiti images are randomly chosen and then colorized to match the sub area they are positioned in. The vectorizer outline technique is used to insert a stylized source outline into the image. I really like the look of these, the stylized vectorizer output almost appears to be part of the graffiti itself. Very different feel than a conventional photo mosiac image.

Yes the tacolicous truck is 'da bomb'. I'm debating whether to try it since it's right next to the curry truck that put me down for a week with food poisoning. Subsection of a scan tracker video panorama. The shot below was taken walking around the side of the truck.

I've been moving back to working with a complete frame slit scan recently after avoiding it for a long period of time. This started with Flip video taken out the side window of the car while driving next to the water near Honolulu chinatown.

This is a shot of the interior of 'Ship to Hawaii' from a single Flip video frame. It doesn't really do justice to the large assortment of crazy stuff hanging on the walls. I used the smart contrast ip op in Studio Artist followed by the flat region colorize ip op to generate the processing effect.

Our westside journey continues. The market is the home of the fabulous Steak Rave, whihc really has to be seen to be believed. So this being a very small town, someone decides to open a Steak Plate joint right next store. Which will probably cause them both to go out of business. Image is the usual video sequence taken out the car window processed with the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker into a static panorama image.

Continuing our west side journey. No stop in K Town is complete without a visit to Agnes Portuguese Bake Shop. Now with high speed internet access, ha,ha. The usual video sequence processed with the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker into a static panorama image.

Continuing the movement down the windward coast. This was taken with a Flip video camera out the side window while driving, then converted into a panorama via the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker. There's some vectorizer output mixed into a second layer.

This was generated from a Flip video sequence taken out the window while driving. The panorama was created using the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker. I then processed that with the Block Abstraction ip op in a second layer.

Panorama created using the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker to process a 180 degree Flip video pan taken while walking through Waikiki. There's a very subtle amount of vectorizer processing added to this in a second layer.

More processed video footage from inside the chaos of the International Marketplace in Waikiki. Experience it before it is gone forever. The video panorama was generated using the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker.

This was generated from a video sequence taken while walking though the International Market Place in Waikiki. Probably my favorite place in Waikiki. Unfortunately not long for this world since they will soon tear it down to build more Gucci stores.

Another Waikiki Beach video pan converted into a static panorama image via the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker. That panorama image was then used as the source image to generate a photo mosaic via the paint synthesizer. A Waikiki movie brush was used to generate the photo mosaic. You need to zoom in to really see all the detail in these mosaic images.
