Art with HTC Vive like you’ve never seen it before

On the HTC Vive Live Tour we got a taste of the art experience and it really got our brains tingling with all sorts of creativity vibes. We were really given the sense that the possibilities to create something out of nothing ran endlessly in this artistic virtual space.

In a recently shared video, the only one on this user’s channel, we get to see the virtual space someone used while they made a lively creature with an electric surrounding. In this two minute video, we get a post-process view of exactly what the artist saw while in the virtual reality space using HTC Vive. The drawing begins with a fluffy looking object and then he adds some really awesome lines that glow inside the belly of the creature and all around.

The artist keeps a frontal perspective while drawing, but still had a solid grasp on the difference between the near and far layers of the overall project. One of the features of Vive that I liked during my demo was that I could walk behind my drawing and continue drawing a shape or line I started on the front side that wrapped around the back.

Imagine being able to draw your favorite sports car and after you finish the exterior design you zoom in and walk into the car to start working on the interior like the seats, steering wheel and dash.

The fun doesn’t have to stop when the drawing is complete. What if you could send your drawing to a 3D printer or export the playback to your own YouTube channel? You could even share your Vive creations with those that have Google Cardboard VR since there’s a Tiltbrush theater app. HTC Vive and virtual reality take 3D drawing to a hole, nutha, level!
