Artwork Evolution


Released: July 2012

Breed images like animals using math and art! Create, view, and mix artwork without any brushes or traditional fine art skills. Psychedelic, abstract artwork can be generated in seconds with the touch of a finger. Design images using your style. Artwork Evolution simulates evolution using images that can breed together to create new visual lifeforms. Each image contains digital DNA, which describes how to draw an image. Every time images are evolved or mutated the DNA is modified to vary the colors, structures, and forms.
