New painting tools: Watercolor, Pollock, and iPhone
- David Lenaerts has created “Farbe,” a very cool watercolor painting simulation that runs in Flash thanks to Pixel Bender.
- Disney artist Stef Kardos shares a whole series of paintings made on an iPhone, created via the natural media app Brushes. Here’s a speed painting demo showing it off. [Via]
- I’ve always dug Miltos Manetas’s Flash-based Jackson Pollock drawing toy (all 8kb of it). Now he’s bringing the same features to the iPhone, adding support for multitouch painting & the accelerometer.
Slick typographic apps: Hidden messages & more
- Stewart Smith’s Histoface lets you embed secret text into an image’s histogram, making it show up in Photoshop’s Levels dialog. That’s rad. IronicSans has the details. [Via Nicolas Chaunu]
- “Whip out your iPhone and snap a photo, and WhatTheFont for iPhone will identify that font in seconds!” How freakin’ great is that?
- If that’s up your alley, check out i love typography’s round-up of iPhone typography apps.
- TypeDNA’s interesting FontShaker offers “a new way to visually explore the fonts you have installed locally using Flash. It also gives you a place to save comments, tags, rating and samples… We have also started to add the ability so that you can open a font file in Photoshop from the flash movie.”
