Digital Barbie's Magic Paintbrush
The childhood memory of watching Barbie effortlessly manifest dresses with a magic paintbrush in the classic film Barbie as Rapunzel has stayed with us. We are particularly inspired by the scene where Barbie uses a magic paintbrush to paint on herself and create various dresses. The geometric dress she paints is especially memorable - it has a futuristic style with angular patterns and shapes. This sparks our imagination and we set out to recreate that imaginative experience by digitally designing our own magic brush. We sketched out some basic frameworks for the dress skeleton and used Fologram to simulate the strokes of a paintbrush. Finally we played with different possibilities of the paintbrush to create our futuristic dresses.
