Digital Ripples





Popwarp, originally uploaded by nicoletbn.


In the past, I was part of an oekaki community. That's where I drew the pixel art bits I posted earlier. Every so often there'd be an image I loved, but it'd only be 300x200 pixels large, and I wanted something more wallpaper sized. Tiling looked terrible, and ruined the impact of the image, while stretching to fit or make larger made it look bloated and wrong. I started isolating my favorite parts, and pulling the ends out to reach the size of the frame I wanted to fill, which looked right to me.



I decided to try this on a photo. It turned out nice. It looks like pushing and pulling at time. I'd like to animate these ripples coming in and out of a photo, but I'll need to figure out a less tedious way of creating them...



The original photo I used is one of Ed's from his trip to Washington DC for the inauguration.
