People are amazing. Give them the proper tools, throw in a little bit of artificial intelligence and then boredom, and it’s fascinating what they will create.
Daniel Voshart chose to spend his quarantine time studying old paintings and statues of Roman Emperors, and then he brought them to life. The result is nothing short of amazing.
I invite you to look at these portraits and see the real person that was the Roman Emperor of the age. Go here to see the author’s articles with an explanation of his process, and I encourage you to follow each of the deep dive articles that shows his process. Very cool!
