I was playing around with the more abstract approach and produces some rough sketches. I deliberately made one on paper and one in Photoshop, because I like to diversify techniques as it both helps me think creatively and it might encourage broader ideas.

I explored how to visualize BTC in such a way, that it is both obsolute and discreet. This is why the entire piece looks like an urban landscape, assembled from pieces of different sizes.
Those pieces would work as separate artworks, but would always also be part of the one big piece. I was also thinking about a 3d effect, that would make it feel more organic and might add to the narrative of various Collectibles racing to be Bitcoin's favorite  Grin
 
Both bigger and smaller pieces would hold unique information about selected products/trademarks/jokes/ideas we would want to incorporate. This sketch mostly just shows one way of how the composition might work.




These two are sort of an upgrade of the first sketch, showing how color might be used and you can also distinguish known shapes. I also scattered individual pieces here to show how they might feel on their own. Which doesn't work very well right now, as they (so far) severely lack visual information; texture, details, hues would all be on a completely next level on canvases!

We could also use some other visual elements, to add to the complexity. But these are a start.




Please don't hold back on the comments!

I really like the sketch, i like the (kind of) 3d nature of it,
I cant visualise the PS one though.

Combining the two ideas you mentioned previously could be done i recon

The symbols could be incorporated into the floor of my scene or have them
but into the mining racks ?

Would it be ok if i try a pen and paper sketch and pist it? It will take me a few
days, but you obviously are free to try also

I have been thinking about this and have put together a digital 3D of what
I had envisaged.

Woa, nice!

I love how grandeous it feels and I definitely want to think about working on this myself. I'll probably come up with a sketch with my take on it soon enough!

How do we figure out which products we will include and how? Is there a way to get anyone in on this so they can participate? I would like to imagine a fair system that will reward participation in much the same way Bitcoin did from the start - the more you support it the more it gave to you.
So here there will be a lot of work ahead, could we make some sort of a game plan, so that there are various ways of supporting the project (with time, ideas and bitcoin) and as reward, individual products/collectibles/things/ideas will be pushed and visualized? And maybe individual pieces might be given for free, or at least prints.

I want this to both be fun and prosperous for all included!

Thanks!
would be nice to see your interpretation also.

For products to include I can make a few suggestions like the big names in crypto

Satoshi
Trezor
Coinmarketcap
Blockchain

It will be difficult to have collaboration in creating the physical art piece but this thread
will hopefully fuel a collaborative group for ideas where people can submit ideas.

As regards funding and rewards, that is going to be tricky, needs some more thought

For the finished artwork it could be raffled, create a series of tickets for a nominal fee
so that everyone has a chance to win and the proceeds go to the Forum to help with the
upkeep and day to day running.

Thank you for some neat ideas.

As far as creating the physical artwork, I imagine that'll be my job. Getting there will open many opportunities to contribute though. There might also be a cooperation option afterwards to print/distribute/auction the results. We'll see!

I like the idea of raffling a lot as it levels the playing field. However, I would like to reward those that will add more to the project if that's possible.

Let's give it a couple more days here, then I'll gather ideas again and make another set of sketches.

So keep those ideas coming, everybody!

Sounds good.

By what you are saying there may be an incentive for people to get
involved. And as a part time artist it is a good excersize to follow
which could open up our own ideas and seperate projects going forward.

Any ideas i put into this thread are solely for this project!

I've been thinking about figurative ways of presenting collectibles of Bitcoin/Bitcoin talk.

I used a couple of suggested ideas, played around with them and connected them in a world of my own. Here's what I came up with.





It's set in cyberspace, that represents the internet as the world where crypto and Bitcointalk comes from and lives. In the center however (and in control) are two senior characters, a bit steam/cyberpunk-ish, with cyborg gadgets being part of them. They are very much into their passion. The left one is extracting data of a soon-to-become-physical coin from the grid. He transforms this data with his contraptions. The other one is inspecting the product and admiring it.

A lot of detail could be intergrated into this version of the artwork - the table already has the BTC sign, but could have more and both characters could have meaningful attires. There could be many different symbols manifest throughout the composition, especially in the grid.

If I forgot something, it'll come up eventually and I'll add it later.  Smiley

Let me know what you think and don't hold back with additional ideas!

I love Painting and I love Bitcoin.

Wow - very nice  Smiley
It’s amazing how different minds perceive and develop  the same idea. Not what I was thinking at all , but very, very nice.
Only negative - top area of illustration in the middle - looks like an Ethereum logo ? What do you think ?

That looks really cool 1Dq, you're definitely talented to bring that picture out of the responses here.

I wouldn't get too caught up in signifying "old men".. the old boys club aka the fed/govt is what bitcoin stands against.

Looks great, love the idea!

First thing that caught me was time, it has an 18th century feel to it
even though there are robotics/cyborg parts, maybe that could be
something to develop,

How advanced money/payment systems have become and how
discussion and interaction has changed, representing BCT forum.

I'm really happy to see some more movement on the thread

I wanted to draw some generic scribble, but yea I see it too. Don't worry, we'll pick what is added together!

I made them older because I imagine a lot of individuals here have been working hard on producing and collecting for a while now, and have become veterans of some sort. But I could easily make them younger! And maaaybe in 10 years we do this again and we age them a bit then!  Grin

The visualisation progress of money/payment systems should be pushed if possible.

Man, there's so much content that could be integrated, I'm pretty hyped about this branch of the project now.

I'll give you guys some more time for additional ideas and then do another sketch, or just an advanced version of this one. I might make it on a smaller canvas just to make it more presentable and start the collectible part of the project.

Man, id really like to contribute to this however i seriously lack any real imagination.....
Il give it a shot though 👍

Something i think that would maybe a cool addition..... In the background would be a historical price chart. This could maybe take the form of a line of scenery for example a mountain range.

Something else that iv toyed with the idea of is, a house of cards with the £ ¥ $ symbols on them toppling over. Possibly reflecting how things could turn out in the future...

One other thing. A long line of gravestones bearing the bitcoin logo, all with disturbed earth as if something has risen from the graves, over and over and over.

I understand my ideas are all a bit cliché but as i said, imagination is NOT my strong suit

Happy to contribute and i wont be offended at all if you reject them.

Cheers!

Those are some pretty cool ideas man, especially the historical graph.

You did paint a completely different picture here, but we haven't settled on anything yet so it might get picked up, or at least pieces of it.

This is off topic, but I love your work and I'm happy you joined in on this project!  Smiley

Let's discuss a very important aspect of the finished piece/s - the size.

I've sold paintings of very different sizes, some as big as 4 meters/13feet. But mostly people choose pieces, that fit into their homes or office space, so around 70-120cm/27-47in on the longer side.

Used materials, subject matter and execution will of course determine how the artwork will feel when hanged or placed on a shelf etc. In this project we have different options on what we settle on.

Let's start by asking ourselves, what size/s we would like this/these artwork/s to be.

I think the sketch below would look great in around 120x90cm/47x35in.






The individual pieces of the composition below might work well being around 40x40cm/15x15in.





What do you guys think? We COULD go wild on dimensions if we wanted, if we figured that would make the artwork somehow better.  Wink

120x90 is a "not too big, not too small" size.

The size all depends obviously where it will finally be located.

Something to consider is transportation to its final home, that might be overseas.

Something to consider is transportation to its final home, that might be overseas.

Final location of an individual piece is definitely one of the most important factors of deciding what size to use. That's why I'm interested in what kind of space you guys use for artworks, please share if you can.

Transportation is another important topic. I'm from Europe and trans-Atlantic transport costs are 2-3 time higher than inter-continental. Smaller pieces (60x60cm/24x24" and smaller) are pretty cheap to send across (around 50$), while over 100cm/40" become quite costly - 600$ and up.

When you sell a piece that is pretty expensive, shipping cost gets marginalized, but selling a larger piece for say 1000$ and having the shipment cost be almost the same becomes a big problem. This is one of the reasons I never made any compromises with either quality (using gold, proper frames and meticulous execution) or price with my larger pieces. When they sold, I wanted me and the buyer satisfied.

Here, we could decide on a larger piece that would be more pricey (maybe around 0.5 BTC) or several smaller, that would be more affordable (0.05 - 0.1BTC).

What do you think?

for me 120x90 is perfect, my walls are not that big!

as regards multiple small sizes, what about making a single artwork
made up of 8 for example pieces [polyptych] so a few people can
own part of a single work, this going forward would potentially raise
the value of the finished product as people strive to own as many
parts as possible. It would also interest collectors and raise the profile
of the artist.

for example
