Virtual Reality is expanding beyond viewing immersive content, allowing artists to create 3D paintings in virtual space. Google has introduced Tilt Brush that lets artists paint life-size 3D images in virtual reality. All one needs is a console and HTC Vive headset.
“Tilt Brush lets you paint in 3D space with virtual reality. Your room is your canvas. Your palette is your imagination. The possibilities are endless,” says the Tilt Brush website. Tilt brush allows users to create paint 3D brush strokes, stars, light, fire around them. Don’t believe us? Watch the video here.
The Dynamic brushes allow users to paint ink, smoke, snow, fire and more from the virtual palette. In fact users can paint in a room-scale VR and walk around their art. The tools include options to change the environment to Night Sky or Space and more. Google tilt brush creations can be shared as room-scale VR pieces or animated GIFs with friends.
The Tilt Brush app comes bundled with the HTC Vive headset, and has been hailed by critics as “VR’s killer app” and the “the first great VR app.” To use Google tilt brush, users will first need to set up their HTC Vive, install Steam and then launch Tilt Brush in order to start creating 3D content.
