App of the week: Oilist

0

GIVE OILIST an image and it will automatically generate a genuine and unique work of art based on it.

Painted for you in real time, you can participate or spectate, it’s up to you.

Oilist comes with 18 infinitely customisable styles; from impressionist to abstract.
Instead of applying a fixed formula to an image as photo filters typically do, Oilist analyses the supplied image using computer vision technology, then paints simulated paint particles that are applied using various brush strokes and techniques.

When Oilist is painting, styles may be infinitely customised by selecting from 12 different painting moods, choosing from 15 different brushes, setting brush options such as the size and spacing and by injecting imperfections with the exciting chaos tool.

The gravity of the paint can be controlled by tilting the device and the brush angles may be controlled by yawing (rotating) the device.
To rapidly change settings, it is possible to pause the painting by tapping in the paint area, make any desired changes, then tap in the painting area again to unpause the painting.
New and interesting results may be obtained by alternating settings with new settings painted on top of the previous settings. For instance, first paint a layer using the Warm mood followed by a layer using the Cool mood.

All images are saved at canvas-worthy 4k resolution.

Oilist is available for iOS.
