Usually for my posts I either rely on stock photo images or photos I’ve taken personally. I’m no photographer, readers of this blog can probably easily tell which are mine and which aren’t.
I’m really excited to have learned a little bit about using artificial intelligence, or AI, to create images and I plan to start including some of them here. I’ve just experimented a little bit and I’m in awe of how the AI can take my instructions and generate something beautiful and original. Sometimes it turns out like I hoped, sometimes it’s much worse, and sometimes it’s much better. It’s always fascinating. Here are a few I made based using the command: “goblin taking off earphones with gold earrings.”
Below are some more examples that demonstrate the various styles and fidelity that the system was able to create. I particularly like the abstract nature of the one in the lower left corner. The prompt for that was “Grace Potter screaming into a microphone next to an organ.” The image is reminiscent of Grace’s face, but it is distorted stylistically to the point where it is barely recognizable. The other faces were generated entirely by the AI including the dog.
I know this post isn’t really about music, but take a moment to ponder the possibilities:
- Do you need artwork for your next single or album release?
- Do you need to make posters to advertise your next show?
- Do you need a band logo? I updated my recent Hasty Music Review of the song “Pisces” by Jinjer with artwork generated using the prompt “heavy metal logo of the Pisces symbol.”
Who knows, perhaps soon you’ll be able to generate an entire music video using AI. It’s a wild world out there – be creative, have fun!
