It sure is possible!! :-) FPC is not limited to just business type
applications. Computer Graphics is nothing more that mathematical
formulas working with pixel data.

Here are a few more examples of what was done with Object Pascal alone
and Free Pascal compiler:

It's a complete Object Pascal implementation of Agg, the Anti-Grain
Geometry library originally written in C++.  Agg-Pas doesn't use any
external libraries, all Object Pascal code compilable with Free

Then there is the GIMP or Photoshop clone - called Pixel32. It runs on
something like 7 platforms, supports 32bit and 64bit OS's, and even
sports Universal Binary for Mac OS X support.

Free Pascal itself comes with a fpImage (part of the Free Component
Library - FCL), which seems to be quite complete in graphics features
- though I haven't used it myself.

fpGUI - a cross-platform Free Pascal GUI toolkit
