You saw 'Exits through the gift shop', right?
Sure, why the hell not :3

It's mostly about that recent-ish boom in Street Art we had a couple of years ago but... Man, it's so much more.
It's.... sure as hell something. Worth a look. Don't read any summaries or whatever, though.

Either you actually painted that, or that's one really fancy and impressive filter! Which is it? Looks awesome.

Neither, technically. It's a bit of software called 'Dynamic Auto Painter', which simulates actual painting following a template based on an actual painter or movement, composing the image using lots of layered brushstrokes rather than directly manipulating the pixel data. It's pretty cool when it works, and horribly tacky-looking when it doesn't!

Well, that and Photoshop for the compositing, obviously. :3

It worked in this case. Looks pretty authentic, although my girlfriend would slap me for not seeing some flaws, probably. I was never good at painting :p

By the way, which software did you use?

No, stick it on the wall of a sterile white room, then it's art.

Thanks. Bought the Mac express version for a few kroner, very handy to have for gifts and to improve old low-res mobile phone pictures.
