Kind of cool how this gallery show generated image turned out. It's actually using the Sketch Mass ip op.

Saturday, September 29, 2012


Playing around with some new gallery show features. This was generated by the Watershed Sketch ip op from randomized gallery show settings.

MSG Source Abstraction

This started with 3 black and white pantograph processors generating separate color channel outputs. I used ISEF blur filters to smear out the pantograph modulated line structures. I then added a gradient lighting macro-edit, and a spatially modulated ForceColorMap. I then ran a little bit of swap evolution in the Evolution Editor. If you look closely you can see the influence of the original facial source image in the abstracted output.

Spent the day adding some new pantograph features to MSG.


Path start regionization using a vector paint preset along with some Threshold ip op processing using some of the new vector output features.

Ocean View

View from my old neighborhood. Another dualmode paint preset that combines SmartBlur ip op Dual op along with a path start regionize paint preset.

Monday, September 24, 2012


DualMode Paint process. Combination of Smartblur ip op as DualOp along with a path start regionization paint preset. There's a also a quick second pass to refine the features based on bezier paths generated using the Color Edge ip op.

Gallery Show Abstraction

Grabbed this while running some gallery show tests.

Another gallery show experiment.

Friday, September 21, 2012


This popped out during some gallery show testing. Working with 'surprise me' auto-masking and random paint presets from a factory paint category..

Thursday, September 20, 2012


Generated with a DualMode Paint preset based on a path start regionization paint effect in conjunction with a Smart Blur dualOp effect.

Stained Glass Look

Using the vectorizer to drive the paint synthesizer to create a new approach to generating a stained glass paint look.

High Five

Combination of a vector paint preset used along with path start regionization patterning.

Bloody Mouth

Having fun with some new texture modulation controls in the paint synthesizer.

Friday, September 14, 2012


Working on some new airbrush paint presets.

Thursday, September 13, 2012


Trying out some new ideas for working with the paint synthesizer. This was done with a 2 pass method, where paint strokes are first recorded into the bezier path frame, then resorted, then painted in resorted order for the final image.

I'm using the vectorizer to drive path start regionization in the paint synthesizer with a dynamic brush.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012


Cool example of some new vectorizer features.

Monday, September 10, 2012


Working with the new 'Calderizer'. Which turns a source image into a hanging Calder mobile.

Text Brush Dance

Playing around with a text brush in the paint synthesizer.

The Watchers

More experiments with some new wet paint presets.

Friday, September 7, 2012

Liquid Kiss

More experiments with geodesic source brush type wet paint effects. Added a new nib mask option in paint fill apply.

Thursday, September 6, 2012

Dark Liquid

Trying out some new path start regionize index re-mapping options. Also working on adding some new feature options for building liquid flow paints.

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

Facial Rough-in

Working on some new dynamic resizing features or geodesic source brush type.

Watercolor Experiments

Working on some new watercolor presets.

Abstraction Regionizer

Paint preset that uses a combination of path start regionization features along with a crazy vector paint to build stylized abstraction effects.

Sunday, September 2, 2012

Sketch Experiment

Trying out some ideas for multi-resolution sketch effects.
