Cartoons are an integral part of our childhood, they teach us valuable lessons, take us on adventures we have always dreamed of. Most of us have a cartoon character we love, admire, and sometimes our ideal type that we dream of being.
But have you ever thought about what cartoon characters will look like in real life? Because it’s hard to imagine if a person in real life has features like cartoon characters like big eyes, super small waist, right?
Stemming from this idea, recently, a Brazilian artist named Hidreley Leli Diao used artificial intelligence (AI) to create surreal portraits of cartoon characters if they appeared. in real life. After discovering AI’s ability to create realistic digital portraits, Diao experimented with the technology in creative ways different from cartoon characters.
The software Diao uses to create surreal portraits is Adobe Photoshop along with 3 different AI Photo applications including FaceApp, Gradient and Remini. Each photo was created by searching the internet for images containing the character’s signature features.
