'Fragments of Infinity' is a series of illustrations depicting an extraordinary fantasy world containing ginormous treehouse villages, walking tree creatures, and other things that instil a sense of bewilderment and escapism.
Most works start with some form of graphite rendering, followed by a mix of digital and traditional painting. Prompt engineering is then used to blend additional details using an AI model trained on previous original artworks by 1984drum.
How is Latent Space used in these artworks?
Latent space is an abstract multi-dimensional space containing feature values that cannot be directly interpreted. Instead, Latent Space encodes a meaningful internal representation of externally observed events.
Humans generally have an understanding of a wide range of topics and the events belonging to those topics. The aim of Latent Space is to provide a similar understanding to a computer through quantitative spatial modelling.
Using a range of Machine Learning text-to-image models, 1984drum uses experimental prompt engineering to produce desired results on multiple layers using sketches and digitally-painted guide images as a starting point. These layers are composited together, along with the traditional work, to create the finished work.
