Heroes, Re-imagined 1: "Ada, The Enduring"
My "Heroes" series is dedicated to historical icons of art and science, but through a slightly fantastical lens: "RPG characters, but painted centuries ago". The portraits are painted at 5000x7000 pixels on iPad mini, and afterwards, a frame and nameplate are added in Gimp.
"The Enchantress of Numbers" was my first completed work in many years, and first of this series.
Ada Lovelace was tenacious and imaginative; she envisioned a future when computers could make music, something that hits home for me personally. She was the natural choice to paint in commemoration of the launch of smart contracts, and I'm grateful that the original (non-rare) version of this piece was featured at the 2021 Virtual Summit Community Presentation as well as being a 1st prize giveaway at the Buenos Aires live event.
