Generative Paint Synthesizer Abstraction

Experimenting with using the Studio Artist paint synthesizer to generate abstract procedural art.

Path Divergence Test

Trying out the new path divergence features in the Studio Artist 4 paint synthesizer. Great tool for building source realism in a digital paint style.

TSP Sketch with Delaunay Abstraction Backing

Combination of some TSP path optimization sketching with delaunay triangle regionization backing.

Quick Vector Abstraction

More experiments with the new triangle shape options for the triangular path anti-alias brush type.

Sunday, November 27, 2011

Expanded Triangle Path Shape Options

Added some new features to the triangle path anti-alias brush type after playing with LiveArt's new posted silly sketchers presets.

TSP Optimized Space Filling Curve 2

Another test of generating a space filling curve to use as a hatching pattern. The space filling curve is generated by a TSP path optimization algorithm.

TSP Optimized Space Filling Curve

Trying out some new ideas for a space filling curve for paint synth region fills, based on a TSP path optimization.

TSP Kermit Optimization

Color sketch generated from a traveling salesman path optimization based on a picture of a christmas Kermit.

Directed MSG Evolution

Another abstract image generated in Studio Artist by directed evolution of MSG processors. I was testing out the new delaunay processors.

Oil Paint Test 3

Another test of some new oil paint features in the Studio Artist paint synthesizer.

Oil Paint Test 2

Another test of some new oil paint features in the Studio Artist paint synthesizer.

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Oil Paint Test

Test of some new features for building oil paint effects in Studio Artist.

TSP Triangle Path Sketch

Combination of a TSP triangle path optimization generated by a MSG preset along with a vector edge sketch overlay.

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Coarse Triangulation

A coarse delaunay triangulation rendition. From some new features being added to Studio Artist.

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Vector Lighting Shadow

Playing around with a new vector lighting gradient shadow effect. It's a part of the vector rendering as opposed to an image processing gradient based post process.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Delaunay Regionization

Adding some new features to the Studio Artist vectorizer.

Monday, November 14, 2011

TSP Triangulation Abstraction

Abstraction generated by triangulating a minimum distance path generated by solving the traveling salesman problem. This was all done using a MSG processor.

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Smart Painting

Working with new path divergence and path end features that do a great job of building intelligent paint presets.

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Path Diverge

Working with some new path divergence features. Also moved it from path end to path angle control panel, since that seems to be a better match.

Friday, November 11, 2011

Vector Skeleton Sketch

Vector skeleton sketch. Generated with new Color Simplify vector output features.

Thursday, November 10, 2011

DualMix Blend Paint

Experimenting with the new DualMix Blend paint fill setup feature. Along with some new Path End features that aid in intelligent paint stroke positioning.

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Oil Paint Effect

Trying out some new ideas for oil paint effects in Studio Artist.

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Mass Abstraction

Working with new abstraction and vector output options for the Mass Abstraction ip op effect.

Monday, November 7, 2011

Smart Scan Vectors

Working with some new intelligent feature scan features for the Studio Artist Vectorizer.

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Smart Face Vectors

Vectorizer test with integrated face detection features.

Saturday, November 5, 2011

Geodesic Rings

Geodesic Rings ip op with new integrated face detection features.

Friday, November 4, 2011

Gallery Show Sketch

I've been working on adding new hatching and sketch features to Studio Artist recently. This popped out of using Gallery Show to generate randomized sketch effects while testing the new features.

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Random Hatching

Doing some more work on pseudo-random hatching pattern generation.

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Etching Effect

Working on some new features for stylized etching or vector screening effects in Studio Artist.

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Stylized Region Sketch

Vector paint sketch based on path start regionization and path shape stylization.
