Lava Field

Slitscan of a lava field south of Makena. Generated by processing a video pan taken out the front window of a moving car using a temporal image operation effect in Studio Artist 4.

Monday, July 23, 2012


Combination of some testing using new vector paint presets along with interactive warp manipulation.

Vector Paint

Working on some new features for vector painting in the Studio Artist paint synthesizer.

Friday, July 20, 2012

Vector Edge Sketch

Trying out some new vector sketch effects in Studio Artist's image operation mode.

Grunge Warp

Kind of looks like some kind of grunge paint effect, but actually is based on a self composited adaptive warp.

Friday, July 13, 2012

Adaptive Warp

Working on some new interactive warp features for Studio Artist.

Thursday, July 12, 2012


Another automatic photo collage generated with a folder of old soviet film poster images.

Delaunay Face

Working on adding some new features to  MSG processor that performs delaunay abstraction.

Saturday, July 7, 2012


Combination of a MSG based procedural abstraction along with some additional Studio Artist paint and image processing effects.

End of the Road

End of the road below Makena, at a parking lot by the beach in the lava flow there. This started with a video pan that was then processed by the temporal scan tracker in Studio Artist to build a static slit scan style panorama.

Splatter Paint 2

Another experiment with a movie brush built from a folder of black ink splatters on a white backing.

Monday, July 2, 2012

Splatter Paint

Quick abstract painting test of a movie brush composed of a folder of black ink splatters on a white background. The movie brush is being used to generate a splatter paint preset in Studio Artist's paint synthesizer. I'm using a photo of street graffiti as the source image for this.
