(Role: Design Director, Original Concept. Programmer.)
I’ve been playing around with generative art in Flash for a while now. Recently I discovered how to work in using the bitmapData class in order to achieve more complex compositions. My first few tests focused on working with older photographs of myself and turning them into organic, painterly pieces.
I’m a little late to the party here (like 4 years!), but nonetheless I’ve set out to do some generative art work with photography, flash and painterly randomness. These are the first few outputs from the new program I’ve created. Still tweaking things, but you can see my first stab in motion below (it may look done, but the final rendering takes upwards of 5 minutes – if you want to stay ’till the end).
