A Zany Little Ray of Sunshine

By ArtistByron | ArtistByron | 12 Aug 2023


Hey there, I'm Byron from Canada and I draw zombies. This time I drew some sunshine because I need some sunshine in my life right now. These drawings first started off as simple creepy smile face but eventually escalated into a full on PFP project.

I like to work smarter not harder so I took 4 of the smiles and coloured them in photoshop, then sent them out to accounts that subscribe to my airdrops on WAX, EOS, ObJKT and OpenSea.

Then I forgot about them and went on to do some other things.

Then I came back to them . . . and painted them up

I could have taken these and made a little quick pack out of them, but that's not complex enough for me. I thought, why not use these for a PFP?
I decided to make them in to suns instead of smile faces because of a lot of reasons, though visually it would be easy to make the 'rays' a new layer on the PFP.

So I needed some backgrounds for these suns. I didn't want to over think every part of the project and kept the artwork loose and flimsy.

I also needed some sun rays.

For these I went for the bizarre and weird and a touch of macabre.

After I was happy enough with the art, I had to use my wife's iphone to take pictures, then photoshop it all.

After this it was just a matter of loading everything up into the NFTHive PFP machine and do all the technical parts. 
Calculating the layers I found that I needed a couple special traits to add extra rarity as well as more possibilities ... but what to use?
For this I used a few old favourites as well as something new.
