String Sketch

Sketch effect generated during some random gallery show testing.

Another image grabbed during some random gallery show testing.

Vector Cowboy

Grabbed this image during some gallery show testing. Based on randomized vector based output from image operation effects.

Severely Mutated Pantograph

This started as a pantograph MSG preset.  Followed by some severe mutation via directed evolution in the Studio Artist evolution editor.

Diamond Grid

Abstract procedural art image generated using MSG processors and directed evolution in the Studio Artist evolution editor.

Paint Synth Pantograph

Another black and white vector pantograph experiment. This time using the paint synthesizer.

MSG Pantograph

Embossed pantograph effect generated with a MSG preset.

Dynamic Regionization

Quick auto-painting using a dynamic brush and path start regionization in the paint synthesizer.

Obscured View

Another gallery show test image grabbed during some automated memory testing.

Spiral Wave

Grabbed this image during some automated gallery show testing that generates random dual mode paint presets.

Another gallery show test image generated during some automated memory usage testing.

Grabbed this image during some gallery show testing. Working with random vectorizer technique and surprise me auto masking.

Thursday, October 18, 2012


Painting based on a single DualMode Paint preset. It's combining the Smart Blur ip op as the dual op along with a dynamic path start regionization paint effect.

Don't Fight with Fools

Irregular photo mosaic based on a cellular path start regionization patterning along with a folder of political propaganda poster imagery.

Line Sketch Halftoning

New approach to halftoning built in the paint synthesizer. It's running BW error diffusion in the paint color source control panel controlling a line sketch algorithm.

Abstract procedural art image generated by directed evolution of MSG processors in the Studio Artist evolution editor.

Procedural Mountain View

Abstract procedural art image generated using MSG processors in Studio Artist.

Watercolor Experiment

Trying out some new ideas to create watercolor effects.

Friday, October 12, 2012


Another vector sketch effect. These recent experiments are interesting because it seems like you can use vector paint to start to get reasonable charcoal or chalk looks.

Quentin Woodcut

Vector woodcut effect based on a paint synthesizer anti-alias solid brush type preset. It's all built with vector ellipse paint nibs. I've been rediscovering the simple ellipse recently, much more versatile then you might expect. The key is using the paint synth to adaptively muck with the basic ellipse shape.

Old Man Scratches Head

Playing around with vector halftoning using the paint synthesizer. This one is not technically correct, since it's working with RGB fills as opposed to CMY for the 3 color passes. Note the partial dotting, which is the key to getting source detail rendition with large dot sizes.

More gallery show experiments using the new vector ip op effect technique option.

Interesting Patterning

Interesting approach to building textured region fill. The patterning is first formed by thin black lines on a solid background. Then the Flat Color Regionize ip op is used to build the final colored regions.

Atomic Structure

Reminds me of some atomic microscope imagery of single atoms. Actually a MSG procedural image generated during some testing.

Hurray for gallery show random preset mutation. More gallery show memory testing.

Ray of Light

Technically a bug. Although it looks pretty cool. Another image from some recent gallery show memory testing.

Blank Expression

This popped out during some recent gallery show testing.

Textured Quit Face

Another interesting screen grab from some gallery show testing.

Hidden Message

Another gallery show test image. Using a random text brush preset. I was using the surprise me paint draw option in the gallery show preferences.

Low Rider

Gallery show output from the new image operation vector output technique.
