What is Picture to People ?

"Picture to People" (P2P) is a huge Computer Graphics project. It was started to create new softwares able to make 2D drawing, 3D rendering, vexel drawing, text effects, photo effects, image filtering and other complex Computer Graphics operations. It has been made from scratch, including its low level Computer Graphics libraries like Maccala. Nowadays, most final features produced for this project are released as free online tools available from its official website. This blog talks about Computer Graphics, mainly concerning Picture to People development.

"Only who makes has true knowledge. Knowledge is control. True power depends on total control. Only who makes from scratch has the real power."

Improved online 3D graffiti text maker

I have found a minor bug in our popular Free Online Graffiti Generator. Since then, I have worked a lot to remove that problem (many users don't ever noticed it, it was really small, but Picture to People has a policy of zero known bugs).

After that, I took advantage of remembering every single detail of the creation and development of this free graffiti app, so I have made some nice improvements. Our very customizable online graffiti maker now is has even more options and creates even more beautiful graffiti styles.

Just to remind you, if you want, you can graffiti your 3D text realistically in a wall, as you can see in the the second graffiti text sample below. You could also like to know we have other free graffiti creator app focused on graffiti text messages on wall.

Researches about hair and fur drawing

Picture to People libraries are getting more and more advanced and complicated. Since some time ago, I'm researching about new realistic techniques to render some nature structures like fur and hair.

I'm developing my own exclusive algorithms and I have already got some advances. I could already create some code able to generate interesting fur and hair patterns.

Below you can see a letter "a" rendered by using the model I already researched to produce fur. There still are a long way to a production level software to create 3D fur text effects, but the effort has been worthy so far.
My algorithms don't cheat like some desktop graphic softwares that use brushes to create this kind of effect. The piece above was drawn using thousands of vector based hair structures created from scratch in rendering pipeline.

Developing new graffiti text effect makers

It has been some time I started researching and developing test software to create new way to produce killer graffiti text effects.

In fact, I'm trying to create a whole set of graphic functions to make easy to generate a new class of graffiti effects. A good part of these new functionalities already became a new part of Maccala, my full-featured vector based drawing library.

I was already able to make some nice advances, but I'm not satisfied yet. We already have the best online graffiti creator and I'm trying to create a complementary software with a similar strength and customization level. In fact, Picture to People site already has a set of online graffiti creator apps.

I'm also searching for ways to make this new graffiti generator somehow easier than the already released one. Below you see a graffiti effect generated with by using the new graffiti softwares I already coded.
