Reading Time: 10 minutes I had put together a list of iconic couples, and my goal was to come up with prompts and processes to get good images where our likenesses were substituted into the scene. One significant departure from my previous trials is that I have started incorporating negative prompts into the renderings.
Reading Time: 8 minutes My instagram feed is full of AI generated self-portraits. Often surprising and evocative, a passel of sites have quickly spun apps which let people stylize a headshot. More figurative images seem to possess the same sensibility and style as those of well-known artists. I have been doing a deeper dive into the world of generative art. This is my four experiment . Unlike the online apps, which stylize a single image, I have diving deeply into Stable Diffusion to create a model that can generate images of multiple specific people in a wide range of scenes.
Reading Time: 5 minutes In California, we love our lawns. But now we’re learning that these green carpets are not only expensive to maintain, but also use a lot of water — up to 40 percent of all residential water use in the state each year!

I tried creating a self-portrait to answer the question.
