Diffusion Walks: Series 1

first of all, zoom in. then zoom out. more.

implemented a modified "Image Random Circular Walker"
to use sharp, rotating lines and jagged spirals instead of circular lines
by breaking radius/direction/angle a little bit, increasing stroke speed,
and utilizing my own finetuned diffusion model outputs as inits for the new walking algorithm.

The new walk is some what of a frantic spidercrawl, accompanied by a shimmering dance.
I enjoy the glints of frenzy that this sort of motion adds to otherwise serene diffusion outputs.
Furthermore, there's something special about the output being revealed; re-distorting a guided
set of denoised images gives a lot of depth and momentum to the work for me personally.
It turns the process into a cycle.

fxrand() affects the init image, stroke speed, number of strokes, duration, stroke angle, and stroke sequence direction.

there are 25 image variations.
this is not about the images as much as it is about the walk.
there are countless walk variations.

duration, stroke angle and direction ranges vary as well.

there are 6 potential speeds.

as a result, hash variations will affect clarity, palette, init, and pattern of the token.

no recorded hash-unique features/attributes are printed on the token as a guide
please experience each variation's infinte iterations as their own realm
explore the variations, find different speeds and walker paths, enjoy the boundless variety in this set

credits are important. when you play with a lot of things you made
mix them with things your friends made
and break things other people made
it is paramount to give all parties their flowers once
the art is made.
