Abstracting a bunch of photos in TOPs

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have assigned a SOPs and COPs converter to TOPs that turns dozens of photos into abstract images.

While not every output is exactly a master piece, it can at least cluster the most prominent image colors:

Technically it's using the resample node`s curve u attribute along with a play on distances from prim uv and some noise.

I get an incomplete definition on stan_trace. Is there somewhere I can download that node? Is it part of LABs?

stan_trace is actually just an HDA i created based on obj/trace included in the file. Maybe I just saved it locally.. :D Or does anyone know how to handle this properly?

I heard oil paintings are a thing right now. ;) Here is a initial setup (still lacking all micro details and sweep strokes):

I did something similar on my own for a leaning exercice . Without talking about building the sweep, one thing which i have seen much yet and which will it bring it to the next level is taking care of the paint wetness and canvas pattern.

And trying to find a possible esthetic algorithm which will mimic in which area an artist will decide oo use a dry sharp brush and when to use a wet smooth brush... Definitely an interest area of research here
