Art Engine v21

Daniel Hirchmann’s Art Engine is a painting simulator made with processing. Among many other properties, it allows you to control the brushes size and opacity, as well as the effect of gravity on the paint. However, the most interesting component of the project is that you do not actually control the brush–the app reads in live video from a webcam and simulates the artistic process of creating a painting. Back in highschool I was really interested in the digital painting style, but over the years the style became so widespread that I lost interest in it. Now there’s apparently an algorithm that can paint digitally for you, and expressively to boot.
