    People keep asking me how to do it so here - I recommend reading this but if you don't have the time I'll make it simple

    sourceful.us/doc/935/introduction-to-vqganclip

    If you would like to create without running it locally you can do so thru google colab. This is the one I like to use. It's in spanish but any translator plugin should work. I recommend getting colab pro for $10 / month but you can use it fine without it

    colab.research.google.com/drive/1go6YwMFe5MX6XM9tv-cnQiSTU50N9EeT

    Once you're in it's pretty simple

    1. Run all the cells in order, you can change any parameter you would like including which model database to pull from but the default one I've found is the best and most diverse. Different models will obviously give you different results

    2. Change "a fantasy world" to whatever you would like

    (you can enter multiple keywords by spacing them out with a "|" like Born Sinner | Classic Album)
    (you can also request the art to be in the specific style of a certain artist)

    3. Seeds are in my understanding basically just different variations of how the AI will go about the creation, and target images are self explanatory. To use a target image you will have to upload it to the file directory directly.

    There's not much info out right now about this specific tool yet but as it grows there should be more breakdowns. I think I'm going to use it for some cover art and things, it's fun to toy around with

    Here's some examples of what you can do with it

    AI artwork looks like s*** and is lacking- most people know this and when they find out it's AI derived usually have nothing nice to say about it. Mainly because it's pretty obvious what AI artwork looks like- it doesn't look real or crafted and looks... well looks like some computer generated soulless s***

    Won't get very far hate to say it

    But for the purpose you're using it for, I don't think all that really matters.

    There will always be a market for artists.

    The cool part about this is generating something utilizing these tools and then creating separate artwork with it, it would basically be like sampling

    Yeah I don't think it will ever kill off artists but lets be honest, it's nowhere near as good as it's going to be. And when it does get to that point, no man is going to be able to compete with a computer that has UNLIMITED knowledge and references at its disposal. The computers will prevail

    @Fka_Groovy ill buy your art though famo

    Idk bout you but I can easily tell all of those are computer generated.

    The software just isn't advanced enough to replicate human imperfections, too symmetrical, using too many copy pasted parts that smear together. Doesn't understand colors yet. Some of the parts don't even finish they just kinda fade out- like that would be cool IF someone intentionally painted it as a motif but since it's AI it's just kinda scary.

    Eventually it might get good but now it's like ugly. It's manufactured and easy to tell. Like you can tell some s*** made on a computer to hang on a wall in an office vs something hand crafted.

    Sure but I mean most of this stuff has only been around for a handful of years- and a lot of this looks like (although amatuerish) human made




    like @Devoted said a lot of people are using this for modeling which is really cool
