Friends of a Different Kind
This is a form of digital art that I call "deep horror": using specially tailored input strings to a generative neural network to get the AI to produce the most horrifying image possible. I was playing around with the Dall-E Mini AI when it hit me that I could take advantage of the distorted nature of a lot of AI-generated images to produce unholy abominations like this.
The general methodology is to give the AI a prompt that it doesn't know how to process, so it's forced to generate weird shit as opposed to something mundane. If you enter "pig man" for example, it just generates images of pigs on a farm. Not creepy at all. So you kinda have to get creative with the prompts to get something truly terrifying.
