Heroes, Re-imagined: "The Four Seasons"

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. This series is a special edition; see details below.


"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 mint 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.

"Ada: The Enduring Winter" is the first of a special set of season-specific rare variations (3 mints/season) which will be released through 2022 at the same price as the original portrait. 

This series was borne out of a unfortunate situation whereby the original 50 mints planned were not generated as scheduled;  18 mints were lost before the policy locked.  After taking a community poll, I was reassured by the community that it would be fine for me to try to recoup some of the loss, and in thanks, not only will these rare versions be priced like the originals, but each season will see one donated to a community member to sell or keep as they see fit.

Please note: Each season in this set will have a distinct policy ID, and these will be the absolute last variations on this portrait I shall be creating.
