I’m not going to get into the habit of posting AI art pictures, but it’s been really fun seeing what I can come up with, and I have a feeling that as time goes on, the fact that so much AI art breaks copyright will cause significant changes in what publicly available AI art generation engines like Dall-E will be able to create.
It’s a lot of fun to play around with various prompts to see what you can come up with. There is definitely an art to crafting a prompt to get images looking the way you want them to. I’ve become relatively adept at tweaking the prompt to place various elements where I want to within an image. It’s not always apparent when looking at an AI generated image what’s going on behind the scenes.
It’s also great how you can generate a quick image to meet a unique need; for example, to accompany a blog post, create a meme, respond to a comment on social media, or illustrate an example of something. I’ve already whipped up images for a variety of purposes. That said, for the most part, creating a proper image takes many, many generations. For one good generation there might be five or six generations that miss the mark in one way or another.
If nothing else, it will be interesting to see where this technology goes in the future. Many of these pictures are amazing, especially when viewed from a distance. But often, when you make the image larger, or zoom into specific areas within the image, the reality breaks down in a serious way. Human faces and especially eyes seem to be one of the major issues (for example, in the below images of Alice and Shaggy). Words and text are also an issue; when you prompt the generator to include a sign (for example, “S-Mart” in the below example of Ash from Evil Dead), many times more text will also be included that contains words taken from the prompt, but misspelled or misrepresented.
As this technology improves it will be incredible to see what we’ll be able to do with it. I’m looking forward to it!
I started by creating some fun depictions of some of the monorails that frequent Walt Disney World:
And I continued by creating whatever visions came to mind:
I ended by creating a few Pomeranian images:
I’m looking forward to creating more of these, especially as time goes on and the generation engines continue to improve. It is certainly entertaining!
