TOWN OVERLOOKING THE WATERWAY : The Gaugan IA Drawing Contest - Week 65

The Gaugan IA Contest on Hive - Week 65 | O Concurso Gaugan IA no Hive - Semana 65.


This week, I decided to return to all my previous drawings from when I first started in the program. I was amazed at the work I did when I didn't know what I was really doing or trying to accomplish.

The reason I chose to return was that I wanted to insert additional elements I just discovered from @steemean. However, the system indicated an error in the segmentation map for brush strokes that were no longer supported. I think in the updates, some features were changed, so the colors changed also.

I decided to publish this drawing. The scene includes a small town overlooking a waterway. Hills are outlining the background.

I utilized the software called Nvidia Gaugan AI Drawing program. It generates photorealistic imagery from basic brush strokes. You can add various elements, i.e. buildings, grounds, landscape, and plants. The program takes your basic drawing strokes and apply them to a blank canvas.

The basic strokes you apply to your blank canvas will look weird until the program interprets them. Below is the image of my basic brush strokes.

Once you've finished your brush strokes and apply your various background filters and effects, the program then creates a drawing based upon those brush strokes.

You can then download your finished images.







Let me know what you think about the Gaugan IA program and my attempt at producing digital art.

Super painting of a really beautiful landscape. :-)
Great way to put the houses.
In my last Gaugan I shared a color to make this houses different. :-)
I'm going to test how this two colors work in the same drawing.
And I'm testing a different grey that also makes big buildings. :-)

Hello. I attempted to test your new color for buildings in my drawing. It didn't quite work for me.

Also, I kept getting the error message "Not all the features are supported in the Segmentation Map". That's why I left the houses the way they were. I created this drawing early last year.

I didn't get that error yet, but it happened to me a lot of times. :-(
I'm going to check if it is working. :-)
Thanks a lot for sharing. :-)

Hi @justclickindiva .
I've tested this painting in Gaugan .
I have no errors. :-)
Please check if you can't use the painting, and you get the error.



Hi @steemean. Your brushstrokes work perfectly.

However, it's my brushstrokes for Week #65 drawing. These brushstrokes were created early last year as I said in my post above.

When I tried to replace the houses with the new color you used, this is what I received from the program:

So I just kept the original color. It worked fine then, but now it doesn't work even through the color looks the same in the palette.

Ha . it's ok.
The colors were created created in the old version.
I get some errors to with the old colors. :-(
But if you use a clean drawing I think both colors work well. :-)

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 39 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!
