I wanted to further explore uses of the glitter tool. Ocean spray made sense so here it is. The frame is from a plug-in for photoshop called splat.
Geeze! That's a very dramatic picture. I'm totally floored you did it in 45 minutes!
Awesome. Totally awesome.
AndyRage's mantra for graphics engine code:
"Sure - how hard can it be?"
:evil: grrrrr you are so good hehehehehe
i should practice harder.. :wink:
i like this painting- i miss living by the coast. also cool way to demonstrate a use for the glitter tool. i'm tempted to call it a particle tool with the way you've rendered the spray. i can see now, how i could apply this tool into my images if a situation calls for it.
AndyRage- Thanks, I love your enthusiasm, it's quite contagious.
sbug51- It is just a series of simple gestures arranged in sequential steps from back to front. You can do it, I have not the least doubt. It is like navigating a road that is unfamiliar. At first it seems difficult and speeds are slow but if you travel the road regularly it becomes familiar and this brings confidence, speed and skill. Just keep driving.
felfish- Exactly! A particle tool is how I saw it in my mind as well. Imagine when our processors can handle physical dynamics. We could tell the "particle tool" to spray out particles made of... say... clumped powder, or shaved wax. Then we come by with a "heat gun" or airbrush set to high pressure and no pigment flow (pure air) now our powder gets blasted into the texture of our paper and our wax gets melted, blobbing together and taking on a shine. Gives me goose bumps. I'm not saying this will happen in AR, that's not for me to say. But it will happen I have no doubt.
