“These images are not painted with paint….They are painted with pixels.”
Digital Artist Michael Flynn uses Fluid Mask to realise his artistic vision:
“Sometimes I see images or get ideas in my head, and not being much of a painter I wondered why not make these images out of existing photos. And so I do.”
There’s some obvious Dali influences in this one, I’d be willing to bet the old grandmaster of surrealist art would be experimenting with digital art himself if he were around now..
“Some of the images you see here have samplings from as many as a hundred photos.”
That’s a lot of compositing! Good to know you’ve got Fluid Mask in your arsenal to minimise the time you need to spend masking.
