After seeing several other iPhone artists on Flickr using the Glaze app I decided to try it out. The app creates various painting textures, from thick impasto to more impressionist styles. You can also mix the different filters to create more personalized textures. I experimented with one of my Hipstamatic photos and two different Inkpad drawings. I also imported an image into Artrage to tweak it and add different brushstrokes and texture. I can already tell that this will be a great app for making app mash ups. Here are some initial experiments:
A Hipstamatic Still Life with different filters
An image that was imported into ArtRage onto a “Canvas” texture
An Inkpad portrait that was imported into Glaze
An Inkpad Self Portrait that was altered with Glaze
I’m really excited about using this with photos as well as my Inkpad drawings to give the images a more painterly feel. What is the next step-real paintings from the images? If you have any suggestions for other app mash ups please leave them in the comments.
