Ok, need to speed it up a bit. Put the chin too low, then too high lol. His nose is too long too... More attention to proportions still needed, but I am happy with this habit of looking for important shapes. Easier to make the faces somewhat recognisable this way. Also I need to do the same thing with hair; what the hell is that I put on his head? 🤣
There are only 10 days left to register to vote in the UK general election. Don't lose your right.
@brandkopf Ahhh, a peek behind the curtain; I'm excited!
my entry for Nr. 17
and here the share.tube link how I did it :)
So this time round I panicked less and took a little more time. I focussed on the shapes I could see, and I think the result isn't too bad. I think if I step away from realism in favour of capturing recognisable shapes I could start producing things I'm actually happy with!
I would have liked to get the hat/neck in, but otherwise I think this is ok.
If we want to get *really* scifi, maybe these hypothetical carbon capture machines could construct *themselves* out of captured carbon, possibly using some kind of tiny pod containing most of the materials needed to get started as well as the information to construct the entire machine... Maybe these pods could, themselves, be made through carbon capture using the same machines, making them self-replicating without any technical skills needed
But this is all some kind of absurd pipe dream, of course. It's not like self-replicating material-producing carbon capture machines grow on trees
@enough14GNU I visited this place last and it was a fantastic experience! Thanks for posting this or I'd have never known about it 😄
@KayKap I agree with all of the above!
If you ask me, decentralisation is the future. It's harder to get 'started' on Mastodon, but it is sooooo much more rewarding 😄
I'm glad you're enjoying it here, and it's lovely to meet you!
@KayKap Yeah definitely; on any platform for sure - but with something like Twitter you get rewarded for having a following. I'm not so sure it's quite the same here - there's no algorithm to prioritise you simply for being 'famous'.
Essentially we should be looking for quality of interactions, instead of quantity!
Keywords definitely play a role, but as you say - they're a starting point 🙂
