AEC Exhibition; The Art Center

Sorry for the lack of replies on comments recently! I appreciate every single comment made here. I'm truly busy with recent and upcoming things...



Update (Tuesday, March 2, 2010): This is (above) my current The Art Center contribution. Inspired by a pre-Columbian sculpture (thanks to Andrea for giving me that fact) portraying an Orca i.e. Killer Whale.

Btw, Randall Sly just wrote in that within the first couple of days we had over 16,000 visitors... that's not bad, isn't it?

Currently, my ducks and bird-like critters are exhibited at one of the coolest places I've ever been: The Ars Electronica Center.


Ars Electronica stands for the world’s leading media arts festival, a superlative state-of-the-art museum, and an innovative R&D facility. The Prix Ars Electronica is often called the Oscar of computer art. As the world’s premier cyberarts competition, the Prix Ars Electronica has been a forum for artistic creativity and innovation since 1987. [Wikipedia]

  4. Thanks drunksaint, it's not a brush thing, it's the technique I guess. Cheers!

  5. could you elaborate a little? on zooming, the paint looks a little granular. any efforts to make it particularly look that way?

  6. I guess the paint looks granular because I often add to my process the impressionist plug-in (Photoshop) in order to make the brushstrokes look more varied or natural-looking...

  7. Fantastic stuff, Florian...I'm just amazed at your sheer brilliance! Your ducks easily rival the other great ducks, namely - Donald, Daffy & Scrooge.
    All the best!
