    AI generated art is really neat and I like to showcase some examples of what it's like. I'm using a Google Colab program called "Looking Glass" which used the Russian AI, ruDALL-E (https://colab.research.google.com/drive/15MQTRMqc7yn626PiC3KPb-DvVx_FrBAr). Using what I can only assume is black magic the AI takes and input image and tries to understand what it is and dumps out an iteration of that. The program is a little finicky and it has it's limitations but the results are really fascinating. If you want to use the program for yourself be aware it'll take a bit of time to generate the images and I recommend you watch this tutorial.

    For this first example I'm using a picture from the illustrated children's book, A Bad Case of the Stripes by David Shannon, it is an already surreal book so I figured it would be perfect for this program. Here is the sample image:
    abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg

    And here are the results:
    lg0_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg1_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg2_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg3_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg4_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg5_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg6_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg7_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg
    lg8_abadcaseofstripesbyDavidShannon.jpg

    Every one of these would make a great cover for your next indie progrock album

    Next I put in the American Gothic painting, "Death on Ridge Road" by Grant Wood another striking and surreal painting:

    DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg

    The results:
    lg9_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg
    lg10_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg
    lg11_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg
    lg12_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg
    lg13_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg
    lg15_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg
    lg16_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg
    lg17_DeathontheRidgeRoad by Grant Wood.jpg

    These are perfect for posting on conspiracy image boards claiming to be photos of other dimentions

    This thread may need the "wat" and "heresy" tags.

    Have you tried any of Chris's drawings with this? Or would that break the AI or unleash an unholy demon on the world.

    Great idea!

    First up our old pal sonichu!
    s1.jpg

    lg0_s1.jpg
    lg1_s1.jpg
    lg2_s1.jpg
    lg3_s1.jpg
    lg4_s1.jpg
    lg5_s1.jpg
    lg6_s1.jpg
    lg7_s1.jpg

    The first one looks like a Paul Mccartney solo album cover from a hell dimension, the second is my favorite, it looks like faded illustration on Japanese cigarette carton. The rest amazingly look like actual drawings and if you squint hard enough you can see sonichu in them.

    Next up is the classic cover to the first issue of sonichu
    s2.jpg

    lg8_s2.jpg
    lg9_s2.jpg
    lg10_s2.jpg
    lg11_s2.jpg
    lg12_s2.jpg
    lg13_s2.jpg
    lg14_s2.jpg
    lg15_s2.jpg
    Half of these look like impressionist art pieces and the other half look like children's drawings if the children were on heroin.

    lg19_s3.jpg
    lg20_s3.jpg
    lg21_s3.jpg
    lg22_s3.jpg
    lg23_s3.jpg

    Every picture here is a masterpiece

    Holy shit, these are incredible.

    It's like Being John Malkovich. Is this how Chris sees the world?

    Looks like the holder of rainbow text can add tags in threads that can normally have tags only modified by OP or mods.

    (also thanks)

    Next is Misato from Evangelion, a test of the AI's ability to replicate anime:
    a3.jpg

    lg16_a3.jpg
    lg17_a3.jpg
    lg18_a3.jpg
    lg19_a3.jpg
    lg20_a3.jpg
    lg21_a3.jpg
    lg22_a3.jpg
    lg23_a3.jpg
    The AI must get a lot of anime as training data because these didn't turn out that bad, I love that stanky arm on the second to last one

    I decided to put in my own art and see what happens, first up is the Sonichu main cast I drew for the Sonichu comic thread:
    sonichulineup.png

    lg24_sonichulineup.png
    lg25_sonichulineup.png
    lg26_sonichulineup.png
    lg27_sonichulineup.png
    lg28_sonichulineup.png
    lg29_sonichulineup.png
    lg30_sonichulineup.png
    lg31_sonichulineup.png
    While the AI didn't really output something that resembled what I drew it did make some cool and creepy heads. I guess having multiple faces in the picture makes the AI freak out a bit.

    Is this AI man enough to take on the Throbbing King of Desire himself?

    This time I generated three batches of images, high, medium, and low universal similarity, for all of the past generations I used medium so I wanted to see how this setting would effect the results.

    First up is high similarity, which means AI attempts to make the image as close as it can to the original:

    lg24_m1.png
    lg25_m1.png
    lg26_m1.png
    lg27_m1.png
    lg28_m1.png
    lg29_m1.png
    lg30_m1.png
    lg31_m1.png
