After an interesting discussion with Paul here, I had a look at a site called Artbreeder. Basically it's along the likes of Dreamscope and Deep Dream, where it runs a piece of art or a photo, or what have you, through an algorithm or two and spits something out. Here's a render I did some time ago after some artbreeding. I'll post the original laterz. The end result really reminds me of character avatars for RPG's like Neverwinter Nights and the like. The result Artbreeder gives you is definitely different. This is what I spat out with no further photofiddling.
OK, the Original is here: Cotton Candy: Original for your comparison.
And thanks for all your kind comments on my last image. I'm glad I saved that one from the delete bin.
COVID Update Edit:
Here's a quote from Dr. Hinshaw, our provincial health minister for those fine folks who think this is just the flu and nothing to be concerned about:
“During the peak of global deaths in April, the number of weekly deaths being reported was higher than lung cancer, road injuries, diabetes or suicide,” Hinshaw noted.
“Our current COVID-19 death toll… is one and a half times higher than the highest annual influenza death number in the last five years.”

She resembles a past girlfriend named lisa. You just about nailed her look.

I love the results Artbreeder produces. I have recently experimented with it. I think it is relevant in that we use it on our Poser / Daz concepts and experiment with its changes , subtle to wild. Something beyond morphing capability. Well done and I would love discussing Artbreeder more with you via a site mail.

This is such a delicate, beautiful portrait. Doesn't look cg at all!

Fantastic work. I'm going to have to check out Artbreeder.

a fine result; I like how AB has smoothed out the original and softened it into a crayon-like finish. Mermaids exceptional images below are what got me started...

She looks pretty steamy and sweet! Might be just me, but she seems to have kind of a Brie Larson / Capt. Marvel intensity to her. Very cool.
It's been a while since I've noodled around with Artbreeder - May have to have a play this weekend..

I have read about Artbreeder couple years ago. Went to their website and it is interesting all the different photo's you combine to get something very different. Nice looking photo!
