Prisma - Comic Art From Photographs

Prisma the new post-processing application on the iPhone uses a combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence to create realistic brush strokes turning your photographs into amazingly life-like paintings or sketches. We’ve been messing around with it here in the office and we managed to come up with a very convincing comic book page in about 20 minutes using the Heisenberg filter.

Simple and easy to use

Using ordinary photographs shot in our office kitchen with an iPhone 6 we were able to achieve some amazing results. The app takes a few seconds to process each image and the final output is limited to 1080 x 1080 square.

Lots of filters

Although the  Heisenberg filter is definitely one of the best for storyboarding / comic book art there are about 35 other filters ranging from electric effects to vibrant Matisse style paintings. Here are a few examples.
