My 11th entry to my Lord Series: MaBiu, The Baboon Lord.

To create this Lord, I first started out doing what I call a "Deep Style Sequence":

I started out with a Weavesilk drawing:

: : : :

Passed it through with one filter in Deep Style

: : : :

Passed this one through with the same filter

: : : :

Passed this one through with a different filter:

: : : :

and passed that one through with one last filter !

: : : :

Now comes the editing part !

NOTE: the Kaleidoscope filter, if pushed into the negatives in the Y dimension, "separate" into different segments, like so:

: : : :

: : : :

I used this to create this rather strange effect to create this one:

: : : :

 

Initially there were two partial "segments" at the sides, where the black is, but I erased them completely in favor of this middle one.

I then duplicated the layer and applied the Engraving

: : : :

and used the Generic filter called Dilation to remove one pixel from ALL borders. those removed pixels are initially white:

: : : :

I just replaced the white with a transparency layer, and placed our original Kaleidoscope underneath:

: : : :

Then applied the Oilify filter:

: : : :

and then Back to Deep Style we goooooo:

this one uses the exact same filter as I used to generate the next to last image in my Deep Style Sequence

: : : :

: : : :

See the similarities in style ?

This is one of the default styles in Deep Dream Generator called "Smooth Shade":

: : : :

I then went back into Gimp, found my trusty Cryptocurrency logo collection (https://github.com/atomiclabs/cryptocurrency-icons) and fund one that looked stylish (named HODL... not presumptuous as a name at all XP) and used it as a "tattoo" on the Baboon Lord (the minute I saw the finished Deep Style, I knew this part of the name XD)

So, there you have it. My 11th entry in my Lord series !

I only tagged 6 of my Lord series with a common tag, sadly, or I'd be able to have a complete page for them ! https://superrare.co/search?q=Lord
