Virtual brushstrokes bring the painting to life

This AI turns your photos into paintings while you watch

I sometimes fantasize about hanging an enormous painted portrait of yours truly on my bedroom wall. Visitors would be forced to genuflect before the picture and leave a gift beneath it as a token of respect.

Unfortunately, I have neither the money to buy artworks nor the skills to paint one myself. But those barriers will no longer stop me from fulfilling my dream.

A team of researchers has developed a tool that will paint your portrait for you.

Dubbed Paint Transformer, the system predicts the parameters of a stroke set with a feed-forward network.

“This way, our model can generate a set of strokes in parallel and obtain the final painting of size 512 × 512 in near real-time,” the researchers wrote in their study paper.

There are already plenty of AI tools that turn photos into artworks, but this one has a unique style that could surely grace Le Louvre.

You can also watch the artificial brushstrokes bring the painting to life.

This is AI artistry that even a former president turned self-obsessed party animal could proudly hang on his wall.

You can try the tool out for yourself here and read the pre-print study paper on  arXiv.
