Stable Diffusion Dreambooth AI Profile Photo Prompts, Experiments, and Monthly Roundup - Issue 11

Greetings, cowgirls and cowboys! 🤠

I'm currently distracted by AI (Artificial Intelligence) and it's going to have real-life use cases than just being talked about in cyberspace! Sorry, web3. There's plenty of juicy content in today's e-mail newsletter, but the first half will focus on AI. It’s just too cool to pass up. Yeehaw, that cowboy painting is AI.

Have you installed Stable Diffusion or DreamBooth yet? That's where my Sunday evening went--I spent it creating models for building images based on any text prompt! The process is both fun, as well addictive. This equates to your first time using a search engine like Google.

You can create models of just about anything, including pets, products, and objects, using just 10-20 high-resolution photos in various poses. After the model is constructed (45-90 minutes), the real magic begins, including pure bliss, sheer terror, or some hilarious outcomes. Within seconds, DreamBooth will generate unique images based on any text prompt. It's not perfect, but you can see where we're headed.

AI Text To Image Prompts

  • “kenny person holding a sign with hand written text “kenny”, oil painting, beautiful background”
  • “kenny as a superhero, super galactic background with neon gradient background and shooting stars, muscular, strong”
  • “1900s portrait of kenny, smiling, wearing a suit and hat”

AI fails:

After taking a quick comparison between my AI photos and others, I realized that they just weren’t popping or looking like me. What gives? Why? Low quality images combined with weird facial expressions made for bad results. To get the best outcome use high-quality and high resolution pictures.

Ahmanson Lab AI + ART Competition Prompt Battle


The Event (Oct. 19, 2022)

While text-to-image generators allow users to create stunning images--from surreal and fantastical dreamscapes to photorealistic portraits or film stills--with simple text entries, composing the right prompt has emerged as its own kind of craft. This competition was a way to showcase the human and artistic elements of prompt composition and to encourage discussion, in our community, around the social issues that arise with increased access to these new technologies.

If you need help making magic, i’m your boy!

I'm taking on one (1) new client project as a fractional product or marketing partner, team builder, or venture builder. As I'm testing out a slightly different approach, I'm looking for a project that's just right for me.

Details below:

  • New consumer product (zero to one, or PMF looking to 🚀)
  • Great people (no jerks). Socially responsible + conscious mindset + craftsmanship culture.
  • Ideally within one of these verticals: future of work, personal development, social impact, education, and productivity. I’m particularly interested in products that humanize technology to enrich people’s lives.

If you know someone who fits this bill, have them get in touch.


That’s all for now. Thanks for checking out my latest collection of links! I hope they brightened up your day. If you have a moment, please let me know which one was your favourite!

Have a great November,

Kenny
