The guys from Corridor Crew are usually wowing us with their visual effects work. But in this video, they took a break from creating art with computers and broke out real canvases to take a painting lesson from Bob Ross. But instead of acrylics or oils, they painted their happy little scenes with sauces and condiments. We can only imagine how the studio smelled after this.
Awesome Bob Ross
Artist Sunday Nobody creates art inspired by memes. He created this amazing 16-foot-tall pixel art portrait of Bob Ross using 7104 paint swatches collected by his followers. Now that he’s dismantled the piece, he’s selling fragments of the work in batches of eight framed swatches with a map to their original location.
The late Bob Ross had a distinctive style to his serene landscape paintings. After training an AI image generator on Bob’s paintings, Miha Mastnak created this wild video that makes it look like the artist painted an animated river, lazily winding through a valley. Watch the 60-second view of the canvas here.
It took CG Geek almost a month of work, but he managed to create a digital 3D environment inspired by the style of artist Bob Ross. Instead of paint, he photo-scanned real-world nature imagery to create textures for his happy little trees. We love how he makes it sound so easy.
NECA’s Bob Ross action figure depicts the artist as he appeared in his show The Joy of Painting. The figure stands 8″ tall and is fully articulated. It comes with a large easel display, a palette, two brushes, a palette knife, and a painting of happy little trees.
Despite his phenomenal posthumous popularity, and having painted thousands of works of art, it’s nearly impossible to find an original Bob Ross painting anywhere. The New York Times dug into the mystery behind what happened to Ross’ numerous paintings in this great short documentary.
(PG-13: Language) The merc with a mouth paints us some happy little trees while channeling Bob Ross in this promo clip for the upcoming Deadpool 2, regaling us with witticisms and playing with his 2-inch brush. We think Pool looks rather smashing with a ‘fro, don’t you?
SillyBrickPics custom-made LEGO minifig set was clearly inspired by artist Bob Ross. It comes complete with his curly perm, a painter’s palette, easel, canvas, and jars of paint. We can already imagine him teaching the joy of painting to other minifigs in hush tones.
If you think Bob Ross should always be painting happy little trees, you might want to look away from Alexander Reben’s horrifying clip, in which they ran footage from The Joy of Painting through deep-learning audio and video processing software. The brown acid is bad.
“I think there’s an artist hidden in the bottom of every single one of us, and here we will try to show you how to bring that artist out.” The Bob Ross company now has full episodes of The Joy of Painting on its YouTube channel. Learn, relax and be inspired by some happy little trees.
