Humanity (Fall of the Damned)
To create this work, a large composition, hand-drawn by the artist, was processed by a custom neural network that was trained on the artist’s “Bodies” dataset. Eaton was inspired by the many large-scale depictions of the Last Judgment that were produced during the Renaissance. The computer processing required to render the complex volumes and shading for each body in such a large-scale and highly detailed image posed a significant technical challenge. To resolve this problem, Eaton produced the image in smaller, tiled pieces, which he then reassembled for printing.
