5 Stages

joshua002.jpg

Collecting
There’s a period where I’m constantly absorbing things, cataloging them in the back of my brain. I may go on a trip and take pictures of something, and then four months later I actually get around to doing something with them.

Drawing
When the time is right, I say, “Okay, I’ve always wanted to do this thing I saw in Barcelona.” But I still have to draw the artwork elements I’ll be using, which can take anywhere from two to four days.

Programming
Then it can take anywhere from two to four more days to write the program that generates a composition from the artwork.

Refining
After that, I might spend two weeks refining the program, changing some of the variables, eliminating artwork that doesn’t work, adding things that do work, rerunning the program, and watching it.

Generating
The process is long and intense, so what are the benefits? Well, if I made the work in Illustrator alone, I’d only have one composition. If I had to do ten different posters based on the same theme, it would take much longer to do it manually. But with my process, I can output ten different designs in ten minutes.

Collecting Colours

joshua001.jpg

I'm always trying to find colors that are a little different. I want a blue you can’t buy in a store. When I was painting, I found this place in Amsterdam that actually made pigments — I’d buy from them and make my own paint. I remember buddies asking me, “Why do you do that?” And I said, “You know why? You’re using the same blue, the same red, and the same green as every other schmuck that walks into that paint store. And I don’t want to do that!”

I’m using the same principle to pick colors for my work now. I want colors that make people say, “Oh, look at this combination of orange and green and blue — I never would have thought to mix those.” I want to have that effect on people.

I take a lot of digital photographs just to extract color. I go to an arboretum here on Long Island at different points in the year and take pictures of the orchid show or the Christmas poinsettias. Nature does a pretty good job of blending. You’ll get a flower that starts with green, goes up to yellow, and blooms red. So already I’ve got a red, a yellow, and a green that all complement each other.

I’ll extract those colors, and then I might find a blue that I like in a sunset photo, and extract that as well. Next, I bring those colors into Photoshop. All the colors are by themselves, saying, “I’m a blue, don’t touch me.” Then I go into Filters and apply a Gaussian blur to the colors, so they’re no longer independent. The blue is now blending into the green, the green is blending into the yellow, and I have this blurred image of all the colors mixing together.

I take that image and run it through this program I’ve created, and say, ”Okay, extract the top 16 colors.” So now I have a range of colors extracted out of the image that I blended. The most complex color set I’ve done was 74 colors, and the average is 32. And that’s where I get all my colors.

No Balls Two Strikes

- 건강관리는 어떻게 하세요?

이외수 : 감정과 건강은 아주 밀접한 관계를 맺고 있어. 그래서 자주 화를 내면 간이 다치고, 자주 슬픔을 느끼면 폐를 다치고, 자꾸 근심을 하면 위를 다치지. 감정을 잘 조절하는 게 건강비결이야. 항상 자기 자신을 많이 격려하고… 힘과 용기를 줄 수 있는 가장 좋은 동반자는 자기 자신이거든.

July 24, 2007 - ArtRage 2.5 Released!

Ambient Design is proud to announce a major update to their natural painting application - ArtRage 2.5. This upgrade is a free update to existing purchasers of ArtRage 2. It is available for Windows, and as a Universal Binary for MacOSX.

ArtRage 2.5 is a significant upgrade to the product. It adds many important new features in a way that retains the unique look and feel of ArtRage. Among the new features in ArtRage 2.5 are the following:

Stencils and Rulers: Mask out areas of your canvas as you paint and constrain your tools to straight lines and curves. Stencils and rulers are easy to use real-world tools that look and work the way traditional-media artists expect.
Layer content transformations: Move, scale and rotate the content of your layers - in groups or individually.
Import images to layers, and copy/paste layers: You can now import an image as a separate layer, then precisely position using the transformation tools. Or paste directly from the clipboard into a new layer. This allows ArtRage to work more seamlessly with other graphics applications.
Printing resolution support (DPI): Painting files support creation and measurements in Inches, Centimetres and Millimetres, with control over printer Dots Per Inch settings. This is also retained in PSD import and export.
Smooth Blender and Precise Pencil: Two new tool modes have been added for users after a more precise look to their work. The Precise Pencil works more like a mechanical pencil for a precise clean line. The Smooth Blender gives soft-edge subtle blending.
Import and export more image formats: ArtRage 2.5 adds additional image formats for importing and exporting images. Support for Photoshop PSD layer groups and layer names has also been added.
Cleaner simpler UI: Even with the addition of many new features the User Interface has been made even easier-to-use and less intrusive than previous versions of ArtRage.
Many other features and enhancements! The complete list of new features and enhancements is available on the ArtRage.com website.

About ArtRage.

ArtRage is a computer painting package designed to provide a natural and easy to use environment for producing art on your computer. By providing realistic tools such as oil paints and pencils, and simulating the real world dynamics of those media, ArtRage allows any user to play around with paint without the expense and mess of its real world counterpart. By providing Tracing tools, ArtRage lets any level of user produce paintings based on photographs or other existing images. ArtRage also includes powerful real-world stencil and ruler tools for more accurate design work.

ArtRage 1 was released as a free product in 2004 and went on to win a number of online awards, followed by the first place in Microsoft뭩 멏oes Your App Think In Ink contest for Tablet PC applications (2004).

ArtRage 2 introduces a wide range of new features and technology improvements that allow everyone from amateur hobbyists to professional artists to get deeper in to the process of painting, without losing the ease of use, sense of realism, and friendly feel that made ArtRage 1 successful. ArtRage 2 is a Windows Vista Certified application, and is also available as a Universal Binary for Mac OSX.

Since its first release in 2004 there have been over Two Million downloads of the free edition of ArtRage. Visit http://www.artrage.com for more details.

Comedy

아침부터 코메디.
기자라고 전화와서 "작품 설명 좀 해주세요"
왜그러시냐고 물었더니만, "전시회 관련 기사를 써야되서요"
전시회 오셔서 작품 보셨냐고 그랬더니만, "아직 못 가봤는데요"
아니 작품을 안보고 어떻게 기사를 쓸 수 있을까 하는 의구심에서 작품 안 보실거면
그냥 갤러리 홈페이지에 있는 글 골라서 알아서 쓰세요. 라고 했더만 "얘기를 잘 안해주실라고 그러네요"
그러니까 장님한테 그림을 말로 설명해줘야 된다 이거네.
아직 연습도 안했는데.
.
.
.
그래서 오늘 아침에 몇몇 지역 신문사에 올라와 있는 글들을 검색해 보니까,
ㅋㅋ 이건 뭐냐
갤러리에 있는 글 고대로 베껴와서는 앞뒤 문맥만 살짝 바뀌어 가지고 마치 자기가 쓴 글 처럼 올려놓으신 저 센스들은 거기에 저 살벌한 지적 재산권 규약, "이 기사는 저작권법의 보호를 받습니다"
완전 코메디네 코메디.

혹시 기사를 보고 제 블로그에 놀러오신 분들은 오타를 바로 잡아드릴께요
참고로 기자분들은 홈페이지 기사 수정 로그인 권한이 없으신가봐요
