Managed to realistic portraits.
A famous art critic, architect and designer Daniel Boshart using neural network tool Artbreeder Photoshop and recreated the 54 portraits of Roman rulers, using their numerous marble busts.
Artbreeder — tool available even for ordinary users: everyone can download the two images, and the program connect them. However Wasart to create each portrait used dozens of images of busts of the Emperor. With the help of photo editors, it has removed the crack, added the skin texture and eye color. To bring them to reality, he studied the origin of the family of the emperors to guess the color of the skin.
“When you do photo realistic, it is easy to distinguish from the original any expression and character. I tried very hard to stick to it. Bust of Florian, which I used as a starting material, did not have much academic weight, but I thought this expression was exciting. It should have been retained. The more the expression is neutral, the harder it is to keep the photorealistic”, — said the designer.
For previous projects Wasart also used a computer program to create portraits of Egyptian mummies and convert a series of figurative sculptures out of clay created by students of the new York Academy of art, the realistic face.
