Inspiration for Creating sketch-it

Art is fundamentally about the process of creation, and seeing as many of us have forgotten this, we are inspired to bring this reminder to everyone. In this world of incredibly sophisticated artificial intelligence models (many of which can already generate an endless supply of art), now more so than ever, we must remind ourselves that our place in this world is not only to create but also to experience our uniquely human lives.

What it does

Sketch-it accepts any image and breaks down how you can sketch that image into 15 easy-to-follow steps so that you can follow along one line at a time.

How we built it

On the front end, we used Flask as a web development framework and an HTML form that allows users to upload images to the server.

On the backend, we used Python libraries ski-kit image and Matplotlib to create visualizations of the lines that make up that image. We broke down the process into frames and adjusted the features of the image to progressively create a more detailed image.

Challenges we ran into

We initially had some issues with scikit-image, as it was our first time using it, but we soon found our way around fixing any importing errors and were able to utilize it effectively.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Challenging ourselves to use frameworks and libraries we haven't used earlier and grinding the project through until the end!😎

What we learned

We learned a lot about personal working styles, the integration of different components on the front and back end side, as well as some new possible projects we would want to try out in the future!

What's next for sketch-it

Adding a feature that converts the step-by-step guideline into a video for an even more seamless user experience!
