Gamer Masterpiece was the first website dedicated to creating real user-generated oil paintings. It started when PlayStation and famous painter Andreas Englund reimagined three classic masterpieces: “Washington Crossing the Delaware,” “Fury of Achilles,” and “Liberty Leading The People.” Image processing, face detection, and custom-coded painterly effects allowed people to place themselves next to their favorite PlayStation characters. There were 70 interchangeable, hand-painted game characters, and over 750,000 possible unique masterpieces. 52,561 masterpieces were created. The top 40 were painted and mailed to the winners. The top-voted masterpiece was celebrated in a large E3 mural, OLA, and a film.
