    What a great find, Dany!

    I must say this technique is intriguing. I personally would not use this for commercial work owing to it going where it will. So it would be difficult to communicate to a client what they were getting since I myself would not know.

    On the other hand, were I doing something for myself, it's brilliant. It's something like an interactive Rorschach ink blot test. It's a little like playing ping-pong between the unconscious and the conscious. There are many many times in this process where he demonstrated passing the controls from one to the other.

    It's a fine piece that he ended up with. It is definitely not anything I have ever done successfully. I tend to be more direct and work from a vision in my head, or I work things out in sketches, or I make use of photo reference or visual elements and see where that leads. But this is great.

    I think one of the advantages is that it happens in an unbroken stream of consciousness (or could do). And so it is a bit like free-form writing where you just start writing and don't stop to consider anything. Just keep writing and writing or painting and painting until something begins to emerge. This process goes far to stop the inner editor before it can derail you. The editor is a good thing to bring in later. But it often plays havoc with the creative flow.

    In this example by Revoy, I would have stopped at any number of times where it was less defined. I very much liked the idea of leaving the path to the image somewhat visible, like one of Michaelangelo's unfinished sculptures. Part rough stone, part discernible carving.

    Thanks so much for sharing this highly creative possibility. By the way, I liked his humorous moments throughout the video.

    Me too,

    he is gifted in his field I think ,
    still, I think is more or less commercial what he is doing
    and this tutorial show his skills which is important for an artist, probably .

    Great tutorial....

    Google Android Jone's tutorials on Alchemy and ZBrush....

    After watching a tutorial by Jones I was inspired to try Alchemy around Christmas... AND from a basic image created randomly in Alchemy I was inspired to create this bloke in Painter...



    Alchemy is a free program and can be downloaded here...

    Cheers

    This is a quite different style kenmo !
    I just downloaded Alchemy , all this news are
    more or less ,
    on one side experimental,
    on the other side,
    secondary ....

    What is the most important is to do what You get to do
    with one or the other.

    Art Rage can be used by itself in a very useful way ...
    that depends of what you are doing ...

    Thank You for the link,
    it will be useful for someone, no doubt .

    I think the intent of Alchemy is to give you inspiration... Much like looking for faces in a cloud, a ghost in the fog or an image from a pile of crumpled paper...

    So I don't think it's real intent is to be a drawing tool like Artrage, Painter or Photoshop...But I could be wrong...

    Cheers

    Here's the part of the image that inspired me to create Baron Von Kantankeruz...

    I've outlined the area in red where I saw a possible inspiration for a painting...
