(Fark)   If Leonardo Da Vinci had access to today's CGI/Photoshop technology, what would be the first thing he'd create? Silly answers preferred. Bonus points if you can post a pic of said creation   (fark.com) divider line

Actually Vamir would be the one to use 'photoshop' modern analysis of his painting lean havely to the idea he used a "Camera Obscura" to project on canvas and there it was just tracing and paint by numbers.

If Da Vinci had access to a computer he would not use it for graphics. So the question should be what would Da Vinci code?

Vamir?

Do you mean "Vermeer"?

/also Albrecht Durer had mechanical aids for getting perspective right more than a century before Vermeer.

Yes, how terrible. In a time before the camera, a person existed who put time to canvas.

The implied shame?

The camera obscura theory is old news. How using one is "tracing" or a lesser art is a weird notion. Lots of painters use sketches on the canvas prior to applying paint. The artist still has to choose from an infinity of lines which ones to include.

I heard David Hockney give a presentation on the subject years ago. A lens reveals, for example, artifacts that the eye suppresses. The apparent hard edges that objects have is a psychological phenomenon. Objects "bleed" a bit. Like an aura.  I discovered that by printing a jpg once. I didn't know what I was doing and the printer spewed out page after page of shoebox shaped renditions of pixels. I could scotch tape the pages together and view them down a long hallway at work. (I was working late.) Close up, I could see that some color was actually outside the nominal edge of the object. That wasn't apparent at a "normal" resolution. The eye suppresses that, but the camera obscura reports it. I presume when the image is upside down that small disorientation permits the painter's eye to notice it. IIRC, Hockney said that painting these little irregularities of light occurs in Renaissance paintings but not before.
