My "Flamen" here is the 14th addition to my Lord Series of artworks.

I started out with a rather basic Weavesilk construct:

I'd started out with a "flower" construct in the middle, as I thought maybe I'd finally have a piece I could show to Roses (another SuperRare artist that has made several top notch collaborative artworks. We've agreed a collab would be cool, but I can never seem to remember to create something interesting and forward it to them !)

Using Deep Dream Generator I generated a couple of images using different styles:

I can see a of potential in most of these, especially the last one.

Which happens to be the one I used to extract Flamen, who was nearly already in their finished form !

I then did some retouching to make it more of a "person" and less of a "person-shaped blob"

I then did some experiments with changing his eyes, but ended up focusing on the Flame itself.

: :

I used the Hue-Chroma Color filter to change the flame's colors.

I also included the eyes themselves.

After creating a couple of differently-hued flamen heads, I duplicated some of them to have a loop, and used G'MIC-qt Morp Blending filter to create intermediary elements.

Then I converted to GIF-compatible colors, using Dithering to minimize disruption to the normal color separation.

: :

This can only be done AFTER applying all the filters, given most filters won't work on 255 Color images, and it takes a dozen minutes or so.

But once it's done, it's relatively fast to generate a GIF and publish to SuperRare:

As usual, I'll leave it unpriced, and open to offers.

I also recently finished my entry to the cryptoNOM Toxic NOM design competition (ends this Sunday if memory serves):

Isn't he just the cutest ?

When I make Cryptoartworks--which I publish on knownorigin, superrare and Book of Orbs--I usually accompany them with tutorials explaining exactly how I created them, this is yet another spot to show them off ;)
