Working with Source Images in Studio Artist

Using multiple sources to create a range of original pieces By Jean Detheux
For the visitors of this page who are already familiar with Studio Artist, this tutorial may be a bit too simplistic. However, for those who come to this fabulous application for the first time, I hope the tutorial will help them enter an exciting environment.

I will work strictly on one canvas, no added layers, but will open and use several Source Images.

Studio Artist requires the opening of a Source Image in order to get started, and this Source Image can already be greatly modified right at that initial stage, simply by setting a canvas size that might be radically different from the original image size/resolution/proportions.

In this tutorial, we will use a 320 x 240 pixels canvas size because we will eventually use the resulting images as material with which to look at "Morphing" (the subject of another tutorial to be published soon).

This tutorial on Multiple Source Images will attempt to show how Studio Artist enables the artist to "use" just about any combination of source images in order to come up with unique images that are truly his or her own, and doing so in ways that are radically different from what, for example, could be done in Photoshop, or Painter.

Yet, I remember from my many years of working with natural media, that it was already quite common for artists to build a library of images borrowed from all sorts of sources, magazines, newspapers, photos, etc. Those personal libraries of images, often only fragments of images, were/are the source of much inspiration, sometimes a simple "spot on a wall" captured in a photo can become the spark that will trigger a whole series of new images, all born from it, yet often not showing any obvious connection to it.
