Artist Daniel Voshart has created the Roman Emperor Project, a manipulated photo series that focuses on bringing life to images of ancient Roman emperors. Voshart used the neural network tool Artbreeder, Photoshop and historical information to realistically depict each ruler as he might have actually looked at the time. Voshart is selling prints of the series on Etsy.
Using the neural-net tool Artbreeder, Photoshop, and historical references, I have created photoreal portraits of Roman Emperors. For this project, I have transformed, or restored (cracks, noses, ears etc.) almost a thousand images of busts to make the 54 emperors of The Principate (27 BC to 285 AD).
