My Gallery! Some of my Realistic Images

Every Image contains two different photos, there is my painting on the left side and on the right side that painting is converted into a realistic image. Have a look at the images below and also read to understand how i make them.

Sea In Front of Mountains:

The above painting is better, but the realistic image verison is very lit. There are two mountains opposite to each other and the clouds are wandering in the sky between these two mountains. The Sea is looking super beautiful in front of those mountains. This realistic image is very impressive, I can surely say that no one could find that is it real or just a painting.

River, Clouds & Hill

Some clouds, hills, mountains, rivers and rocks are used. This image is one of the amazing and professional photography looking images. Some Various brushes and tools are used perfectly to make this. But guess what, it is really looking so professional. If you show this realistic image to someone and ask how it was captured, he would really say that a professional photographer took this image by a professional camera setup. But you know that this is just paint and then converted into a realistic image by NVIDIA GAUGAN AI TOOL.

Rocks in the Sea

Two rocks are located inside the sea and clouds are going back to home. Some stones are also there near those rocks (see paint). This image also looks awesome because NVIDIA turned it very confidently.

Mountains Near Sea

This is a substandard painting but the Nvidia Gaugan Ai Tool gave it a very beautiful and realistic look. In this image there is sea around hills and mountains, and the sky is giving a very superb look to the whole image. That’s why the realistic image is very clear to see. On the other hand we can not differentiate between hills and water in painted image.
