It's a Jungle Out There
Gallery show wasn't really thinking about any of that. He (she,it) was busy auto-mutating random paint presets, actually turning them into mini generative paint action sequences on the fly using some new features we added to it recently. So this is another gallery show stream grab from these recent experiments, where you point it at a folder of really boring tube paint presets, and it creates finished portraits by auto-editing a boring paint preset on the fly, in essence building an automatic PASeq (so that you don't have to). And there's a lot more to do to improve these new features, but i think they are pretty cool, and point in some interesting new directions as we head into the Studio Artist future.
This guy looks like he has just come out of the Thunder Dome (2 walk in, 1 comes out). Although he did start out as a happy clown image. So my philosophical ramblings above came out of that fleeting thought as i grabbed this image for my daily post. Tomorrow we're headed into new fun areas, as we use Gallery Show to semi-autonomously explore alien invasions. Which also seems to relate to my many recent obsessions on bacteria here. Gallery show (and me apparently) are reading way too many news articles about various bacteria (both good and evil) recently.
