New Mac App – Ripped from Reality

Share

Appnotix has announced Ripped from Reality for Mac, a photography app that creates an artistic sketch and real world composition out of photos. Ripped from Reality captures and expels you into a surreal world of juxtapositions. Combining the world of photography, the world of sketching, the uniqueness within every wrinkle of paper, and most importantly the exploration into your own imagination. Ripped from Reality offers a very unique end result, powerful features, and great workflow. No other photography app can create such powerfully artistic images out of a single photo like Ripped from Reality.

Photography has given us the opportunity to capture images in life. We are able to experience the reality of a rare moment or the permanence in a location that photography allows us to never forget. Being able to recreate these memories through another medium can make it even more personal, imagine combining the two.

This app retails for $5.99/£3.99 and you can pick it up here.

Become Ripped from Reality and into a different world that is in your control. Rule over your photograph with a sketch, or create an environment with this product that can be a journey back or step forward in time. With your sketch overlaying your photograph the artist inside you can move into another direction. Use it as a way of an imaginative approach to contrasting real life with the collage of graphite.

When creating your sketch you can go from controlled small pencil lines to a range of eye catching bold ones. As an artist your paper is a big deal. Remove and add more of a deckled edged rip with just the use of your fingertip. The accuracy of your sketch is up to you, you are the artist after all. Create a pencil color to invent a sense of nostalgia or move into a different aesthetic of modern draftsmanship. With Ripped from Reality you have a clear journey through art following digital imaging into a classical era of art. To your viewer you are creating a combination that will give a clear statement of the modern age we are all apart of.
