It's interesting to see everyone's interpretations. I'll post mine as we go! S-

I ran your portrait through the same Deep Dream sequence I did for mine. Similar results but also a little different.

I like that very much! I like every iteration so far. Everyone takes a different approach, some highly radical, but I like them all (some I'm sure will not but they are unworthy Philistines). Each is very different, some more realistic, some skewing wildly, but the main thing I think the exercise teaches is that there are an infinite number of approaches to art (and art I believe it is). The two that perhaps come the closest to depicting YOU are likely the two you did yourself. The other day we were musing about capturing the soul. Do you think you, or any of us so far captured more than a "good likeness?" Perhaps Duck's Deep Dream filter does a better job. I'd like to run me through it since I tend to see myself as being scattered and shattered and full of sharp points sometimes, but (heads up, tangent ahead!!) maybe we are all scattered and shattered and, indeed, split down the middle, at least sometimes. (I have a vicious disease and a fever so silly musing happens...)

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Scattered and shattered... Hmm... I know I'm scatter-brained sometimes. My wife sometimes even calls me a complete idiot. I have to remind her that my father was the complete idiot. I'm just a halfwit.

:doh: :rofl:

I'm not sure anyone can capture the soul, but we keep trying, oh we keep trying! S-
