A sampler of the hundreds of pieces by my colleagues (bottom two rows) and by me (top two rows) at the NYIT Computer Graphics Lab in the early days - all created using various versions of my painting programs there. These two arrays are illustrations for my recent history of computer painting.
The six pieces at the top represent several developmental stages in the paint program series at NYIT. In order left to right, top to bottom:
egg.on.toast was created by parts with Paint, making it the first high-resolution image at NYIT and inspiring the creation of BigPaint, used to create the tubular
darth.vader in 1978. The next painting,
the "colored blob", is the first test pattern for Paint3 in 1977, followed by another early test called
colorweb. Both these images figured in the Quantel v Spaceward patent trial.
bleu.drop was created from the 1975 Paint piece bleu, by adding a dropped shadow in 24-bit space to the paint strokes. To create
mandarin.tut, An 8-bit painting of King Tut by Paul Xander was highly modified 24-bit space, including the addition of a Paint3 moustache. The last four pieces are at video resolution, and the first two at twice that.
The next six pieces:
The desert landscape is thought to be the first painting by Paul Xander with Paint, in 1975.
holehand (Ephraim Cohen),
gangster rats (Lance Williams),
worms (David DiFrancesco), and
Haida motif (Christy Barton) were created using Paint features in the period approximately 1975-1977.
The Lance Williams explosion, one of the first serious artistic uses of Paint3 in 1977, began as a scan of the Mona Lisa, whose eyes still peer (mid upper center) from within the chaos. All images are video resolution.
Created at NYIT at various times in the 1970s (1975-79).
