Flash back!

Flash is gone! (thanks steve;-)

Terrestrial Sonata 1 - First in Series of Ambient Video Series, 2013

I've been working on a certain technique with MSG evolution in Studio Artist using directed evolution, which is both fascinating and somewhat addictive. I then frequently take these frames into paint for touch up. I've finally collected vast numbers of frames and enough for quite a few videos, so the ambient video project is well under way. The videos will be submitted for…

Experimentation with textured or raised paint appearances in paint synthesizer and msg

In the last few days people have been sharing a wealth of existing forum topics, tutorials and shared presets concerning the general discussion of the artist trying to achieve a raised, impasto, watercolor or other surface, textural quality to digital paint brushes, msg parameters, or canvas operations in Studio Artist. Of course I've barely begun to scratch…

Just purchased SA 4 and starting to feel my way around, quick question, is there a way of deleting the last action made?

Most likely a simple thing but appreciate any comments

Abstraction as a Process

Thought this series of sketches by Picasso was a good example of abstraction as a process.

When is an artist born ?

 When is an artist born ??

I think there is two sorts of artist, one who is born out of years of training and one that was born like that. What is the diffrence....its the touch I belive. We all want to create nice paintings, and that is for me the most importance, and what other thinks is not that important.

I paint because I love it, and the I feel happy :-).…

Mail from the fare North, the land of the Polarbear

Hi from Norway!

My name is Roy Lindquist ( 61 ) and are living in Norway in a small island caled Sula, at the west coast of Norway! The Northern Sea and as fare west as one can come in our country. I have just started to learn the use of this amazing Studio Artist software, and I will share with you all my work when I find there is something to be presented for "the big and talented audience". I am so thankful and happy to join the "club" and be a part of this fantastic and joyful…

Studio Artist 4 on a macbook pro (2011)

I just got my new Macbook Pro last week and I'm so excited!  The way that I work with Studio Artist 4 has been dramatically enhanced and I'm enthralled.  Floating palettes make sense now!  I had to decide between the 27" iMac and the Macbook Pro and ultimately went with the MBP because it allowed me to work away from my desk.

can we have watercolor text in bitmap mode?

I always used vector mode for drawing with letters due to the limitations of 32-bit Windows (without any effect only type and letters), but in the new version, the question that comes to my mind is whether when drawing with letters In bitmap mode, can words be given watery effects when placed in a canvas? In such a way that it is calculated for each words/brushes and colors in its proper place?See More

a GS PaintMutate1

Grabbed this during stress testing of Studio Artist V5.5. I was using a mutate factory paint generative strategy, with additional smart generative paint options turned on to smart edit the initial mutated preset.
