Sacred Geometry Series

Using historical geometric forms as a structural foundation for male figure compositions. Whereas Da Vinci explored ideal body proportions with Vitruvian Man, I use the geometric forms as a foundational grid to layout the composition of the figure. When imagined with the Canny control net inside Stable Diffusion, the joints of the figures correspond to the intersections of the geometric forms, thus creating a unique visual language and structure throughout the series.

Note: images included here are workflow images so they don’t go through extensive post editing. Limb issues are expected. It takes a lot of time to refine and finalize images. It won’t make sense to do these edits when I just wanted to show my process.

The images from Mage 1: Battle Mage made me think that having some underlying structure could be interesting, so I went to a stock library and downloaded an illustration that I thought could possibly work — originally mainly intended to influence the background, to drive visual interests, and to have a more consistent underlying structure.

But as you shall see in the renders that I received, Stable Diffusion has an interesting way to interpret the images. Based on my weights, start and end value, I found out what the Canny control net was really doing — it’s not simply trying to put lines in different areas, it’s actually trying to fit the figures into the lines that you define.

So much so that it is putting objects where there are separate shapes, and forming complex compositions on its own.

Additionally, some rather interesting generations emerged

For example, the circular form with the feet hanging out (8) on the side, fitting into the correct corresponding areas of the supplied image, while being coherent with the rest of the composition.

It’s from this iteration that I realized that I might be onto something, and formed the basis for the Sacred Geometry series.

Realization through experimentation is something that happens quite a bit. Often I find new ways to use things that were possibly not even designed to be used in that way. It’s a very interesting process that I’m not sure if it’s unique to me — but I firmly believe that it’s my life philosophy of trying everything once, and keeping a “why not” spirit that has opened all these doors and possibilities for me.

And I hope that you see the humor in the feet. I certainly did, and that’s why I posted it. Often these unexpected results are what truly inspired me down a path during the process. They might not be what I fully intended, and it that regard, they could be a fail. But if the unexpected didn’t happen, then it wouldn’t have led me down a truly unique path simply because everything is so under control. Chaos works in magical ways.
