By now most of you know my work. I've been active both as a crypto artist and as a member here for a year and a half. In case you missed it, here's a reference thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3467154.0

I always got a lot of support and great advice here and I understand why this place is of vital importance to the Crypto universe.

This is why I WANT TO DEVELOP MY BIGGEST UP TO DATE CRYPTOART PROJECT RIGHT HERE! I want it to be about Bitcoin, about this board and the many things it represents.
This board will soon be 10 years old and I want this project to commemorate it! And I want to do in in cooperation with you!

My initial idea is to create either a series of artworks or one larger piece, constructed from smaller ones. I want individual paintings to be lush Cryptoart collectibles. Early sketches I will make might also be interesting in this regard!


Here's my initial plan:

PHASE 1: I start this exact thread in which I invite you all to the project. HERE we exchange ideas, we brainstorm and come up with a rough blueprint for me to work on. We also discuss promotion of the project and how that would benefit us.

PHASE 2: Through sketches, drawings and miniatures I visualize our concept. We evaluate these together and go back and forth until one or more solid arworks are in sight. I would want many of you to be active participants in this because there would be various benefits in contributing to the project. We determine in what way my work and the effort of all included will be rewarded. We might need to come up with something entirely new here.

PHASE 3: I start working on the project, updating you as regularily as it is possible. We promote the project via our channels and evaluate it as far as it is possible for an artwork in the making.

PHASE 4: The artwork (or initial part of it, if it is serialized) is finished. If there are supporters to be compensated this is done, if parts of the artwork or all is being bought or raffled or something else, this is done.

PHASE 5: Last step of the project. We evaluate it and figure out if we want to take further steps in this direction together.

To begin the ride, I would like you to ask yourselves and answer below these three questions:

•   What are the most important aspects of Bitcointalk for you personally and in relation to Bitcoin in general?
•   What kind of crypto artworks would best express this boards's importance and are there any you can share that already exist?
•   Would you actively support this project with ideas/donations and what kind of reward/s would you expect for your input?


Please invite anyone, who might be interested to this thread. I really want this to be a thing!
Cheers!

I love Painting and I love Bitcoin.

Hey 1D

Here is a painting that was done a few years back which included some of our most respected members here on the board.  The winner of the race was greenplastic but, he had an advantage due to the oversized sail. LOL

This is a great reference and nice painting, thanks for sharing it here!

I want to go a step further though and make it bigger and more complex. Maybe it could even be completely abstract, we'll see  Smiley

2.  Huge.

Love this idea...besides the technical aspect of the forum...I am a Bitcoin Maximalist and all for Bitcoin.

   But my main hobby is the collectable physicals in here.
   Portray the physical crypto coins and cards...wallets...ex...Bitbills..Trezor. .Casascius..etc

   Portray a frail old man like myself surrounded by his passion!

    That would be a start!  Cheers Wink

If we could incorporate as many actual physical coins/hardware wallets as possible into the art that would raise interest substantially. Expensive as hell and would command quite the premium from whoever ends up owning this piece. There are many many peeled coins out there.

A crypto ransom letter comes to mind... some sort of fiat trashing letter pieced together and spelled out with coins/ledgers/trezors. Maybe this idea could be the CoA.

This is already going great guys!

I love ideas about your own products or just individual staples being part of the artwork.

Great idea! Looking forward to how turns out. I always enjoy going back through the old threads of great art projects to see work in progress photos and such. Will try to contribute!

Wow, superb idea  Smiley
Hopefully I can contribute something?
For me - Highlander says it best - There can be only one - and that is bitcoin. With the birth of Bitcoin came Bitcointalk and it is the ONLY forum.
Maybe a piece of work expressing all the collectibles and memorabilia, like Krogothmanhattan said, with coins, notes, wallets etc. Possibly a timeline/blockchain mix.
Just an idea.
Hope this helps ?

Let me sum it up so far:

* There have been similar project done in the past, but with different concepts than this one.

* We want to incorporate physical crypto coins, wallets and collectibles, representatives of which we have right here.
   Doing this could be done by actually using actual collectibles in the artwork.

* We want to make it big.

* There could be avatars of members involved, such as animals - We could make it a lot of fun.

* BTC

* We want it publicly displayed somehow.

* We want to show how passionate we are about Bitcoin and collecting artifacts connected with this universe.

* We could add timeline/blockchain in different ways.


Let's get some more ideas flowing in and maybe we can already refine them to a degree.

I intend to start working on first sketches starting Monday, so before that it's all about brainstorming! 

I love Painting and I love Bitcoin.

Some other thoughts:

 - your work with gold has been superb previously so you might want to factor that in somehow.

 - really like the idea of making it where multiple smaller pieces build to one large macro image.  That would be a good way to incorporate all the themes you're looking for, from btc being "gold" to the comraderie on this board to the technological side to the way btc is a revolution against central fiat/inflation.

 - Props for taking this on, I'm sure it will eat up a ton of time.  Hopefully it's a love and not just work!

Great idea by the OP, and great response and input by many.

My understanding is that the artwork is to be about bitcoin and this forum,
So to me that shod represent bitcoin the technology and people,
How we interact with it,
What the main goals of people are towards bitcoin.

I am picturing a circular table surrounded by racks of mining equipment
and around this table are seated people holding hands as in a seance.
In the centre of the table and risen up is a golden BTC symbol


Just an idea...

Interesting this is definitely going on the blackboard.


I was thinking about three things, that I want to discuss with you.

* We could set a timeline to conclude this project by November, which will be just right for the 10th Anniversary of this board! This will give us, especially me and/or anyone else working on production and distribution, sufficient time to finish it properly.

* Secondly, since this might go into becoming a set of artworks, we could pick from among the founders/big supporters of Bitcoin and Bitcointalk and reward them with an art piece. All this is possible because of the great effort of people that were active, expecially in the beginning, right? It might be that there are too many or they might not be in reach, but let's discuss the possibilities!

* And lastly, we could make it two very different pieces. I will have just enough time to work on both. One could be a very realistic painting, illustrating what has already been discussed above - maybe visualizing a Bitcoin collector and his various trophies. And the other a more abstract and structurally complex piece, that could be multiple piece initially assembled into a big one and then divided/sold/raffled to interested individuals.

BTW (edit): Would it be possible to combine these two ideas:


I am picturing a circular table surrounded by racks of mining equipment
and around this table are seated people holding hands as in a seance.
In the centre of the table and risen up is a golden BTC symbol



and


   Portray the physical crypto coins and cards...wallets...ex...Bitbills..Trezor. .Casascius..etc

   Portray a frail old man like myself surrounded by his passion!


Let me know what you think, and expect early studies very soon!
