New AI-generated horsies
Recently I've been experimenting with DALL-E 2, one of the models that uses CLIP to generate images from my text descriptions. It was trained on internet text and images, so there's a lot it can do, and a lot of ways it can remix the stuff it's seen online. I decided to have it generate new horsies.
This is "Product photo of a breyer horse model of a guinea pig"
I chose Breyer because the brand has been around so long that there are plenty of pictures of Breyer horses online, and also because they have a distinctive realistic style and matte plastic texture.
These particular models never existed, though.
It sometimes can produce unexpected solutions to strange combinations. How to combine a four-legged horse with a two-legged rooster? Maybe as a three-legged animal.
For some animal-horse combinations, I found that it wouldn't be horse-shaped unless I added "horsie" to the end. So, here is "Product photo of a breyer horse model of godzilla horsie"
And "Product photo of a breyer horse model of a poison dart frog horsie"
And "Product photo of a breyer horse model of a leaf-tailed gecko horsie"
I hope you have enjoyed these.
Bonus post: more horsies!
