Digital mark-making method

A method to accurately create a multi-image mark-making tool so as to simulate digitally the rendering of a printed articulation, stroke, or mark of a donor natural medium used in graphic arts, such paints, pencils, erasers, or other implements. Using a computer or other hardware the method provides a digital representation of multiple-image elements to simulate an implement tip, receptor grain and variable grain penetration, and smooth and continuous brush stroke without visible artifacts. The method allows for isolating a plurality of image elements, masking the image elements, creating a grid of image elements to function as an index of an array of the image elements, creating a file of such image elements for the purpose of accurately simulating brushes and other donor-receptor articulations common to natural media, and for rendering a brush stroke in multiple-images to accurately simulate digitally paint brushes and other implements.RELATED APPLICATIONSThis is a continuation-in-part of Ser. No. 08/325,962 filed Oct. 20, 1994, now abandoned.

A drawing tool

The present invention provides a drawing tool for an artist, draughtsman or hobbyist etc., the drawing tool comprising a handle and a retaining means disposed on the handle. The retaining means being adapted to releasably retain an elongate drawing material, such as a graphite lead, in an orientation substantially transverse to the axis of the handle. In use, manipulation of the handle and selective application of pressure to the elongate drawing material enables the drawing material to be applied to a drawing surface to thereby control the degree of shading on the drawing surface. The hand tool has particular application to reliably rendering gradients when shading with graphite and chalk etc. To be accompanied, when published, by FIG. 1 of the drawings, deposit varying thicknesses of graphite on the paper to modify the gradient of the shading.

Drawing implements

A drawing implement, for example a wax crayon (10), has a laminated structure of coloured layers (1) to (6). The wax crayon is produced by forming wax layers one above the other to provide a laminated slab, by pouring successive quantities of coloured wax over a flat bottomed surface of a tank or trough and allowing each quantity of coloured wax to set, at least partially, to form a layer, before pouring the next quantity. The laminated slab so formed is cut into strips, which are in tum cut into lengths to form the implements.

Method for bonding artists' materials to coated architectural panels and

Composite architectural panels comprising a substrate composed of a laminate of two metal sheets joined by a thermoplastic core and having a factory-applied polymeric surface coating which is not receptive to artists' materials, are prepared for use as a support or substrate for traditional artists' materials by roughening the surface using abrasive and/or chemical means. After thoroughly cleaning the prepared surface, one or more artists' materials are applied and permanently bonded to the panel surface by heating the panel substrate to a temperature which is less than the melting temperature of the thermoplastic core and maintaining the substrate at that temperature for a time that is sufficient to bond the artists' materials to the surface.

Paper product with bleed-through resistant and show-through resistant qualities

A sheet of material that substantially reduces or eliminates the incidence of bleed-through and show-through, thereby enabling a user to prepare artwork, sketches, designs, etc. on both sides of the sheet of material, without the incidence of bleed-through or show-through. The sheet of material comprises a first substrate, a second substrate, and an adhesive material positioned between the first substrate and the second substrate. The adhesive material operatively joins the first and second substrates to each other. The adhesive material acts as a moisture barrier, thereby preventing ink or moisture from passing therethrough and saturating the second substrate when ink or moisture is applied to the first substrate and vice versa. The adhesive also serves as a light barrier, thereby reducing or eliminating show-through on the second substrate when ink or moisture is applied to the first substrate and vice versa. Multiple sheets of material may be bound into a sketch book or a sketch pad.

Method of creating vivid paintings using clear canvas

A method of creating vivid life-like paintings using a clear or translucent canvas is provided. The method includes placing the canvas atop an image to be reproduced and tracing outline and highlight colors from the image onto the front side of the canvas. The canvas is then turned over and field colors and background colors are applied to the back side of the canvas. As a final step, a clear coating can be applied to the front side of the canvas. The result is a surprisingly vivid and life-like rendering of the image when the canvas is viewed from its front side. The rendering results from the combination of outlines and highlights on the front of the canvas and field and background colors visible through the canvas from the back side thereof, all enhanced by the clear coating.

Methods and apparatus for simulation of an erodible tip in a natural media drawing and/or painting simulation

A method, system, and computer-readable storage medium are disclosed for simulation of an erodible tip. A brush tool representing an erodible media is modeled as a height map. Information is collected about a user manipulation of a stylus representing a stroke made on a virtual canvas with the brush tool. A mark to be made on the virtual canvas is determined dependent on the brush tool model and the collected information. The determined mark is rendered. A change in the height map of the brush tool due to the stroke is determined dependent on the brush tool model and the collected information. One or more subsequent marks are rendered in response to manipulation of the brush tool dependent on the determined change in the height map.

Marker implement

A marking tool has pigmented material integrally formed into a marker tool shape with various corners and edges that are usefully deployable. A planar body has spaced preferably parallel faces defining a thickness, and spaced peripheral sides oriented orthogonally to the faces. One or more sides can be curved. A number of straight or curved edges are formed between the faces and sides, with corners where three surfaces intersect and form a point. Some of the surfaces are segments that can be passed perpendicularly, at an incline or along the line of the edge to vary mark thickness. The marker is useful for drawing and shading when sketching, making lines in construction trades, arts, rubbing to trace bas-relief patterns, etc.

Method of producing pigment injected oil paintings and article produced thereby

A method is disclosed for producing a decorative and artistic effect on a flat surface, preferably a flat surface with some texture and primed with an acrylic based gesso, by brushing a un-pigmented drying oil, preferably boiled linseed oil, and applying a coating layer of pigment particles, having one or more colors, to the surface of the substrate and below the surface of the oil film. The process allows for a coating that allows for a minimal amount of pigment and oil and a surface thickness less than 0.010 of an inch. Once the coating is allowed to cure, the resultant article has the appearance of an oil painting with only a fraction of the pigment suspended in oil. Articles produced by this method are also encompassed within the invention.
