Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is really cool.



Pronounced Vee-Artiste (get it?), VARTISTE is a 2D Image editor that doubles as a 3D-surface texture editor as well. Basically like the GIMP or Photoshop in Virtual Reality.

Quill Tools

I really enjoy drawing with Oculus Quill. I’ve put together a bunch of tools to make working with it easier. Including:

  • A ruby library / jupyter notebook to make exporting all or part of a scene really easy and repeatable.
  • Materials to bring Quill illustrations into UE4
  • A UE4 blueprint to animate Quill models without the performance issues or headaches or the typical Skeleton mesh or Geometry cache methods


AI Dream Creations

I’ve been using BigGAN to generate some pretty bizarre creatures / objects, and then using Oculus Quill to turn them into 3D drawings & animations.

This guy looks like a mashup of an astronaut and a banjo player, with some elk thrown in..

Here’s a butter-cycle:

AI Style Transfer

I’ve been playing around with using AI style transfer to fill in details of the unwrapped UVs from #Quillustrations

Style Transfer Character

It seems to produce some pretty artsy looking results without much effort, though there’s a lot more that can be done here.
