App DescriptionAutoPainter vol 2: "The Illustrators" automatically turns your photo into a realistic drawings using some of the best rendering styles available on any system.
The first volume of AutoPainter featured mixed styles of oil and aquarell painting, the vol.2 now focuses on primarily illustration techniques.
For this application the AutoPainter process has been especially tweaked to work with the new type of of styles that use combination of water color and pen shading.
The bold chalk strokes and patterns give the immediate feel of quick form study. It works well on still life or any large recognizable shapes that don't have big need for details.
This style creates hand-painted illustration using water colors and pen shading. It is inspired by the book illustration techniques. Works on portraits or landscapes, for best result make sure the objects are well separated from background.
Vivid, modern illustration style using colored felt-tip pens that borrows from late impressionism with a hint of cubism.
This works well on portraits and landscapes. For portraits use the Mask brush to paint over face areas to give smoother appearance.
Wet on Dry technique with a fine ink shading strokes. Works best on easily recognizable shapes, landscapes or well separated portraits from the background.
Look at our other AutoPainter apps that feature additional painting techniques.
Note: This process is rather sophisticated and while we tried to do full resolution it was not stable due to high memory requirements. The current medium resolution of 1280 in longest size is a good compromise between quality and usability. It produces pretty great and sharp results because unlike a photo this is completely digitally created image - it has no noise and no Bayer approximation. If you are interested we have applications for desktop.
