prisma + artisto

8 01 2017

usually I make phone calls and send messages with my phone. I was never a big fan of all the gimmicks offered in those fancy show-off-handys. until I accidentally came across two apps, available for free since june 2016 for android and iOS – PRISMA and ARTISTO. the ‘filter’-sets were created by russian programmer ALEXEY MOISEENKOV and became immediately a big hit in russia and eastern europe. you can read -here- how it works. most filters on the market change your original photo or painting only slightly, most of them have big problems to differentiate between lines and shapes. PRISMA and ARTISTO create stunning changed images and even video, in my opinion pure ART. the most stupid image turns into something interesting. most people probably use it for ‘selfles’, I think it is too good for that, you can create new ART, students should use it as a first step for a painting, to get ideas for posters or a different approach to illustration, or – even as a start for some very different ANIMATION.
I have my problems with it now – it is addictive!

balto backgrounds

digging through my photography files I found these beautiful backgrounds from the AMBLIMATION animated feature film BALTO, except the last one all painted in oil by LUC DESMARCHELIER, one of the master-painters. it’s the year 1993, london. we decided to paint most of the BG’s in oil after painted snow tests in gouache were not looking like snow. only some wooden textured house shots and a few interiors were painted in gouache. it was hard for most of the background painters to get more familiar with this unusual painting technique in animation. after disney’s BAMBI BALTO was the second feature film painted in oil.
