I tried making an action figure of myself in Dalle3 and this is what I came up with (both images appear below). Culled from a much larger set of results, not uploaded here.
The resemblance isn’t quite there, but the spirit is right. I was aiming more for Unabomber, but it gave me more Paul Stamets instead, which perhaps isn’t so far off in the end.
It’s fun Dalle3 but at this point, it feels a little janky still to have this advanced AI system that can’t follow directions. I kept asking for a close-cropped hair and beard and/or five o’clock shadow, and it consistently gave long and grey hair, etc. It kept including guns and V for Vendetta masks, and I kept asking it not to. Then it would do it again, and I would say, do you know you’re not following instructions? And then it would be like yes, blah blah blah.
What can I say, I really am “AI COMPLAINER.” This action figure only proves what we knew all along.
Got at least a five o’clock shadow here by starting a completely new set:
