Since I’ve already used ArtBreeder, I tried out ProsePainter. I actually really hated ArtBreeder last year, so I’m excited that I really enjoyed this one!
Here was the starting image I used (one of their defaults):
And here is the final image:
These are the prompts I used and where I used them to make it look like this:
“radiant fireworks of diamonds” on the background
“red demon eyes” on her eyes
“long black hair” on her headscarf
“blue lips” on her lips
“dark brown unibrow” on the gap between her eyebrows
“gross green boogers” under her nostrils
“big flowers” on her forehead
Again, I am absolutely too tame when it comes to these projects and only ever find myself interested in altering the features that are already there with things that could be there, like “red eyes” on eyes and “blue lips” on lips. I tried branching out a little with the flowers on her forehead and really enjoyed that result.
It’s alright. There are still some deconvolution artifacts that give it away immediately (at least with the more photorealistic genres I’ve played with.) I love the freedom and flexibility it provides with various keywords and parameters, but the actual effect of these parameters in the images is rather disappointing. Resolution is not bad for generative models.
Words used: Butcher shop, nipple, hen, velvet, butterfly, chaos
These are two images I generate, using the shoe and cat modes respectively. I thought this was pretty cool, but at the same time pretty frustrating, because with the cat one I gravitated to making the cat have really complex, unnatural forms, but Pix2Pix kept having trouble interpreting the image and it would keep coming out as an incomprehensible, blurry mess. I do realize why this is the case, however.
Really cool and fun to play with. I can see the texture of the “ball” is getting furrier and greener as I raise the gene proportion of “tennis ball”.
This was pretty fun but I thought once the amount of genes got past 4 or 5, the outcome became significantly less controllable. In the second image I had pomeranian as one of the genes but I kept getting images of babies.
