Black Face

Kind of a mistake, but sometimes those are the most interesting images.

Rainy Days

Another experiment with some of the new paint synthesizer features.

Xing of the 1%

Some fun with interactive warp. Plus some new detail rendition paint features in the paint synthesizer.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012


More path start regionization experiments building scribble hatch patterns.

Scribble Hatch 2

More experiments using path start regionization to build up a scribbled hatching pattern. I started this with a randomized hue vectorizer underpainting to make the overall sketch more interesting.

Scribble Hatch

Working on using path start regionize in the paint synth to build up scribble hatch patterning to rough in a painting.

Paint Bubbles

More testing of new paint synthesizer features. This was generated with multiple passes of a partially transparent paint using a new adaptive brush size modulator.

Friday, August 24, 2012

Paint Experiments

More experiments working with some new detail retention features in the paint synthesizer.

Thursday, August 23, 2012


More work with new detail rendition features in the paint synthesizer. The source photo is from Coney Island and was taken after the first New York City summer MacWorld where Studio Artist was first introduced. This was generated using a single auto-paint pass.

Wednesday, August 22, 2012


Working on some new features for the paint synthesizer associated with tightening up paintings. This was generated with a single auto-paint pass with no masking.

Tuesday, August 21, 2012


Working on some new path start regionize paint synthesizer features for Studio Artist.

Raised Maze

More experiments with image to height mapping MSG processors.

Sunday, August 19, 2012


Another procedural art image generated by working with directed evolution of MSG processors in Studio Artist's evolution editor.

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Forbidden Gate

Combination of some MSG procedural imagery generation along with a multi-octave gradient lighting effect.

Friday, August 17, 2012

Surf Sketch

More experiments with sketch stylization in Studio Artist.

Sketch Stylization 4

Sketch stylization effect. Generated in the paint synthesizer using an image operation effect to build the sketch patterning paths. Vector paint as well.

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Head on Fire

Playing around with some Studio Artist MSG processor directed evolution.

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Sketch Stylization 3

More experiments with adding new Studio Artist features for sketch stylization. This time output directly from the paint synthesizer using vector paint.

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Hidden Valley

Procedural image generated with Studio Artist MSG processors. Working with some image to height processors and some directed evolution in the evolution editor.

Sketch Stylization 2

Another sketch experiment using some new Studio Artist sketch mass features.

Monday, August 13, 2012

Sketch Stylization

Working on some new sketch stylization effects.

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Mountain Aurora

Procedural image generated with MSG processors. More fun with image to height processors.

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Masked Viewpoint

Facial abstraction generated using a MSG preset generated via directed evolution in the Studio Artist evolution editor.

Friday, August 10, 2012

Extrusion 3

More experiments with new image to height processors in Studio Artist MSG. Note that the Geisha image is embedded into the height field. It's z depth modulating a procedural texture generator.

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Extrusion 2

More experiments with the new MSG image to height processor.

Wednesday, August 8, 2012


Adding some new features to the Image to Height MSG processor. Procedural image generated using Studio Artist's MSG (modular synthesized graphics) features.

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

Mountain View

Working on some new MSG effect options. Procedural image based on gradient mapping a turbulence noise height field.

Monday, August 6, 2012

Ray of Light

MSG based abstraction effect.

Sunday, August 5, 2012

Recursive Roots 2

Abstract procedural image generated using MSG processors. I'm working with recursive IO routing as well.

Saturday, August 4, 2012

Makena Slitscan

Slitscan generated from a 180 degree video pan taken at the end of the road south of Makena. Slitscan was generated using Studio Artist temporal image operation effect.

Friday, August 3, 2012

Better Living 4

Another automatic photo collage experiment based on a folder of old ad images.

BW Abstraction

Black and white hard contrast abstraction. Using the Rank Edge Filter image operation effect in Studio Artist 4.

Thursday, August 2, 2012

Mr Pineapple

Vectorizer rendition of a Maui landmark.

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Better Living 3

Another automatic photo collage experiment. Partial overlay on top of a watercolor paint preset. I guess a study in perception based on positive and negative space since there is nothing mapping the photo collage images to the source coloring for their respective spatial locations.
