vector-editor As per this blog post from July, we have officially closed the advanced suite of Flash tools (previously located at in order to focus on our new company direction powering the photo experience in 3rd party apps. While we hoped that everyone would have taken the time to retrieve their files since our notice, we recognize that the message may not have been seen by everyone. Therefore, if you were not able to retrieve all of your files to date, please contact us at from the email address associated with your account to help retrieve your files. Do this quickly. Please note that after September 30th, 2012, we cannot guarantee that your files will still be available for us to retrieve. While the tools will remain offline, we may continue to explore new homes in whole or in part, for specific elements of the suite. I would like to make a few recommendations for alternate tools to try: Thank you to those of you who gave awards to the advanced suite.

Flame Painter | online paint program Flame Painter is a unique paint program, it belongs to my 'I am an Artist' experimental project. I think with tools which inspires you, everyone can be an artist. You can try it here, change different brush settings and paint your own flame paintings. When you change the background from black to white, the palette changes from additive to subtractive and the feeling of the painting is very different. It's not easy to explain all brush parameters, so I leave this for your experimentation. Check out new Rebelle - the real watercolor and acrylic paint program, Amberlight - abstract art tool based on particles, or Fluidance motion effect program. You can try more experiments here. NEW: This is a new Flash version of Flame Painter Free, we removed the old Java version, because it is not anymore supported correctly by most of the browsers. Tools: FADE - fade in/out [ on | off ] GRADIENT - color gradient [ on | off ] COLOR - brush color SATURATION - brush saturation OPACITY - brush opacity

Adding Monsters to Thrift Store Paintings Have you ever been to a thrift store (think Goodwill or Salvation Army) and noticed that they usually carry a small selection of landscape paintings? Artists Chris McMahon and Thryza Segal decided to inject a little fun into these discarded works and give them a second life by adding monsters to the scenic landscapes. The trick is to match the paint originally used (e.g., acrylic or oil) and try to blend the monsters into the original scene as if they were always there. It can be a challenge if the original is too textured or old but the results (below) speak for themselves. It’s a fun exploration and one the Sifter enjoyed.

bomomo (COOL Flash Painting Tool) Shadow Art Sculptures by Diet Wiegman Mar 24, 2013 Diet Wiegman is a Dutch artist that uses a combination of sculpture and light to create fascinating shadow art projected onto walls. Born in 1944, he began experimenting with light sculptures in the 1980s, inspiring a generation of artists after him to also explore the art style (e.g., Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Kumi Yamashita). For more artwork by Wiegman, be sure to check out his official site at where you will find all of his light sculptures as well as drawings, paintings, photographs, ceramics and more.

Living Lines Library Kurt Wenner | Master Artist and Architect, and Inventor of 3D Sidewalk Art These Photos Are Actually Pencil Perfect Drawings At just 22 years old, Italian artist Diego Fazo has developed the skill to create photo-realistic drawings using a simple charcoal pencil. His latest creation, pictured below, has drawn hundreds of positive comments on his Deviant Art profile. Don’t tell me you can tell the image below is a drawing and not a high-definition photograph, because I don’t buy it. In fact people were so skeptical this incredible piece of art was drawn by hand that young Diego Fazo had to put up some photos of the work in progress just to lay doubts to rest. And looking at his-mind-blowing masterpiece, can you really blame people for questioning it’s hand-drawn? Like other talented artists who started their careers on Deviant Art, Diego is a self-taught pencil master whose technique matured with the passing of the years. Scroll down for more of his awesome drawings, and check out his Deviant Art profile, as well. Reddit Stumble

El Greco Painting | Expulsion of the Money Changers | Homage to Titian, Michelangelo, Clovio, and Raphael On a recent museum visit, Artsology saw this painting by the 16th Century painter Domenicos Theotocopoulos, who is better known as "El Greco" ("The Greek"). While he was born in Crete, El Greco later lived in Italy, followed by Spain. This painting is titled Christ Driving the Money Changers from the Temple, and is dated circa 1570. The composition of the painting is interesting in that most of the action is taking place off-center, with Jesus depicted as storming through the temple and brandishing a whip in order to scare the money changers away. (If you're wondering who the "money changers" were, they were people offering to exchange the standard Greek and Roman money for Jewish and Tyrian money, which was required for temple ceremonies). ShareThis As we mentioned, most of the action is happening on the left side of the painting, while the right side shows a view down a hallway in perspective, which gives a sense of depth to the picture.

Nobby Wheelbarrows and Shovels by Cal Lane Artist and welder Cal Lane burns these delicate lace-like patterns as Wheelbarrows and Shovels. (via Albert (Tapper) Torney HOAX | Avasay This email was sent to me a few months ago. Recently I have been contacted (twice) by people suggesting this is a HOAX (see comments below). From my (limited) investigations, Albert Torney did exist, and did collect bottles and cans. The earliest post I have found claiming credit for Tapper was February 2010. The other claimant to this particular throne is Sandy Sanderson, of New Zealand. You might also notice there are several shots of a ‘Waikato’ car, but no Toohey’s cars. Sandy -and his sculptures- can be found at My Sincere apologies to Sandy. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License.
