Bard’s Freaky Faces were born out of AI. Using a system called SPADE-Face trained on celebrities faces. I learned how to manipulate the model and generate ugly freaky faces. We now have characters such as Sally, Al, Max and more.
And then I went a step further and animated them with another tool called First Order Model. So now they have something to say. Only 50 were ever created.
Here are some images of the work in progress.
