Another gallery show cycle grab taken during some recent experiments involving auto-generation of mutated paint presets working off of a folder of randomly chosen news imagery. I'm using the new Gallery Show Search Technique, which randomly works off of the set of presets returned from the latest preset browser search results.
I had Studio Artist's MSG Editor configured for some experiments i was running yesterday, and the effect if generates when processing the gallery show painting posted above was pretty interesting (as shown in this second screen capture of the MSG Preview cell in the MSG Advanced Editor). All it's doing is mapping the automatically generated oil painting through a color gradient, but it's remarkable how much that small amount of additional pretty simple image processing totally changes the feel and mood of the image.
