Vector Hatch

Trying out some experiments with new vector paint preset. There are 3 different vector paint processes used to build up this image in a Studio Artist paint action sequence.

Surface Lighting Experiment

More work with some new vector paint features in the paint synthesizer. This one incorporates some multi-scale gradient lighting image processing effects to build the surface lighting perception.

Rough Ink Look

I've been experimenting with some new rough and tumble black ink paint presets recently. Still a work in progress, but it's lead to some new paint synthesizer features. It's vector paint, so it's resolution independent for printing.

Canvas Distortion 2

Another test with a new canvas distortion paint preset in Studio Artist.

Canvas Distortion

Playing around with a new Studio Artist paint preset. It's an edited modification of a preset that paints a lighting effect onto an image. The modification works great to distort the existing canvas like it's a splattering liquid paint. I started with a photo of a graffiti tag and quickly generated this abstract image by distortion painting over it.

Potrero Hill

One of my old stomping grounds in San Francisco. Also a homage to Wayne Thiebaud. Although it would be more of an homage if the painting of the hill was more stylized.

Kite Surfer

Vectorizer processing of a photo of a kite surfer on Maui's north shore.

I've recently been experimenting with multiple vectorizer overlays applied on top of MSG procedural pattern backdrops.

Combination of heavily stylized vectorizer overlays on top of abstract MSG background.

This image has 2 different components. An abstract MSG based textural backing overlaid with a vectorizer outline technique rendition of a source image.

Camouflage Sketch

MSG source processing effect. Generated using the Evolution Editor in Studio Artist 4.

Chaotic attractor rendered as a procedural abstract image using MSG processors in Studio Artist 4.

Fascism May Cause Trauma And/Or Death

Photo collage generated by using propaganda imagery to collage manipulated news imagery.

Procedural Stylized Landscape 2

Another swap evolved variation of a MSG preset sent to me by a Studio Artist user. I was working with directed evolution of the MSG preset in the Evolution Editor to build some organic forms in the foreground of the stylized procedural landscapes generated by the original preset.

Procedural Stylized Landscape

Procedural stylized abstract landscape generated by swap evolving some Studio Artist MSG presets Liveart sent me. I worked in the evolution editor with directed swap evolution until i started seeing some organic shapes in the foreground.

Raised Abstraction

Procedural abstraction generated with a Studio Artist MSG preset. I then applied several passes of Gradient Lighting processing at different scales to build up a raised relief effect for the originally flat colored procedural abstraction.

Roadside Slit Scan Abstraction

Slit scan of some video footage taken out the side window of a moving car with some additional effect work.

North Shore Curve

Static image generated by processing some video footage taken out the front window of a moving car on Maui's north shore with the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker.

North Shore Drive

Slit scan generated from a short video segment taken out the window of a moving car driving on the north shore of Maui. You can see the west maui mountains in the distance.

Face Stutter

Processed a video pan taken at lunch with the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker with settings that give a stutter effect for the resulting static image output.

Paia Parking Lot

Dirt parking lot in Paia. The 270 degree view was taken by panning a video camera. The static panorama slit scan was generated using a temporal image operation effect in Studio Artist.

Baldwin Drive

Scan Tracker panorama taken out the front window of a car with a pocket video camera. The video pan footage was processed with the Studio Artist temporal scan tracker effect to build the slit scan panorama.

Cat Walk

Thought i'd mix things up a little after our may day inspired month of political photo collages. Slit scan of a cat walking. I used a vertical scan direction and a Studio Artist temporal image processing effect to generate the slit scan image from a short video segment.
