The internet was already a weird place, but it’s suddenly getting weirder thanks to the explosion of weird AI art created by image generators like DALL E 2, MidJourney, and Craiyon. From bizarre cartoon strains to surreal food and shocking self-portraits, DALL E 2 and others to varying degrees of success really seem capable of creating any weird AI art you can describe in their instant boxes.
Of course, DALL E 2 and other AI art creators don’t think of these things themselves. They run the written claim that was given to them through the millions of images and captions that have been fed. So the results are as weird as users’ fantasies. There are a lot of existential concerns about where all this is going and what that means for artists, but artificial intelligence won’t take over the world and turn us into slaves yet. we hope.
OpenAI, the makers of the DALL E 2 recently announced pricing and that they will expand access to the platform over the next month, but for now there’s still a waiting list. Want to learn how to make it work for you? See our guide to HOW TO USE DALL E 2. In the meantime, here are some of the strangest AI art created by DALL E 2 and other AI platforms to date.
Last Selfie Ever Taken

The righteous wrath of an honest man – Colin Stetson (Opens in a new tab)
One of the latest trends making the rounds on TikTok is using AI art generators to create the “last selfie ever taken.” Started by Tiktokker Tweet embed (Opens in a new tab) Taken by others, the results appear suitably horrific as photo-shooting robots and skeletons emerge amid desolate scenes of a burning planet. Most disturbingly, it seems that selfies are still a thing in recent days. It’s not clear what AI art generator they used to create the images – it looks like the original series may have been created with MidJourney. There’s also a deeper conspiracy theory brewing – just what is the blue cube seen in so many photos?

On a lighter note, many of the strangest AI art created on DALL E 2 involved placing celebrities and characters in unlikely places. It seems that the only limit is your imagination.
“Ordinary” people in “average” cities

So let’s just remember what people were like today, before the end of the world and before that we sent the mascots of fast food restaurants into deep space just ordinary people in middle cities. Hey Kranin (Opens in a new tab) On Twitter he did just that to show ordinary people in average cities in different countries. But they also look kind of weird.

Maybe Ai should stick with imagination then. Of all the DALL E 2 animation sets out there (and there are many), this has to be our favorite. It is improved by giving specific instructions to the artist, not just a combination of two characters.
Rubik’s cube peanut butter sandwich
data scientist Max Wolf (Opens in a new tab) We tested the reliability of DALL E 2 that can follow instructions when asked to produce photographs of foods and see if they can generate new ideas for food content on the Internet. For example to make a peanut butter sandwich in the shape of a Rubik’s cube? Yes it can.
Animals live their dreams…

There is a whole category of AI images dedicated to holograms, showing either exercise, news reporting, and more.
…and a fight is who should not be named
Expect every brand marketing team and dog to try to plan a campaign around AI art generators in the next few months. That can tire pretty quickly, but some sharpie brands were pretty quick to hit the mark. Heinz He was quick to get out of the starting gates, and so was Dogplanet.com (Opens in a new tab).
The website for dog enthusiasts has used Discord-based MidJourney to create all kinds of canine creations with some hilarious results – the epic fight between cocker spaniel and Voldemort was the highlight. If Harry Potter was a dog, he would be a spaniel, they reckon, and based on that we have to agree.
AI art generators have opened up new possibilities for fan presentations for products that are rumored to be in production but whose makers don’t want to show them to us yet. We wanted to have a peak in Apple Car is rumored Since we got the winds of the project. Designer and YouTuber John Murillo (Opens in a new tab) I figure DALL E 2 might be able to imagine what it would look like. Of course, writing “Apple Car” gave rise to a car that looks like a fruit, so he chose instead the “MacBook- and Magic Mouse-inspired Minimalist Sportscar, made of aluminum and glass”.
Duolingo Trail Cam
We finally get to know what everyone’s favorite multilingual owl does in its sleep thanks to the Duolingo trail cam. This one was actually built in Craiyon, formerly called DALL-E mini, until the makers of DALL-E had words.
Not everything is apocalyptic and anthropomorphic in the art of artificial intelligence. Some people actually use it for productive use. Yes, really, and good for them. Artist Zach Katz uses DALL E 2 to show what city streets would look like without cars while adding greenery and water features. It makes more sense and suggests that AI can be useful in city planning. His Twitter account Tweet embed (Opens in a new tab) He gained thousands of followers in just weeks, and he has a huge backlog of requests for sites to try.
Enough of these reasonable and worthwhile endeavors. Why use AI to create something useful when you can create a cross between a Pokémon and a dog?
There seem to be a lot of Star Wars fans using DALL E 2 and the like, and some of the strangest AI artifacts have included characters placed in unlikely situations, from Jar Jar Binks in Love Island to Darth Vader MRI scan, and yes R2DR after finding God . This is another one created in Craiyon.

We’ve seen character blending, artist blending, and what about clothes? In fact, given some of the shoe collaborations we’ve seen in recent years, we wouldn’t be surprised if he saw those in the light of day. And just see how much the bear wants them.

And speaking of fashion, we love these catwalk looks designed by some of Jim Henson’s finest as interpreted by DALL E 2. The weirdest AI art fashion collection we’ve seen yet.
A man kisses a blue deer
Boahaha!!! This is very strange!!! 😳😱🤣💀 So, in this tour of Dall-E 2, I wanted to create an image of a man kissing a blue deer (it was supposed to be an Anthro, like Bam) in an enchanted forest, drawn in a romantic style (think late 18th and mid-19th centuries). ten). Die of laughter! pic.twitter.com/d2Ygwzn5OrJuly 31, 2022
If you use an AI artifact creator like DALL E 2, you’ll soon learn that you need to be very specific in your claims. This Twitter user apparently intended to create a picture of a man joking Bam from Animal Crossing but requested a man kissing a blue deer. So what they got was, well, a guy kissing a blue deer.
Borat is like Doctor Strange

AI art generators can be an interesting aid to the selection of directors. Wondering if a particular actor might fit into a role? Borat like Doctor Strange, for example? Just ask DALL E 2.
Is the art of artificial intelligence really art?
The big question is, but is it art? Some argue that AI-generated art is not really art because it was created by a machine and thus lacks the intrinsic psychological meaning of an agent. Really, AI does not make art but rather copies art from the fed database but in new combinations and forms. AI does not rely on personal or collective experiences as an artist does.
However, the AI art creator works on human instructions. So while the AI generator itself can’t be described as an artist, perhaps the human who writes the router (which might explain why people protect the prompts they used to create an image). In this sense, the AI art generator will be just another art tool like a brush or a pencil.
For the commercial side of art, human creators of AI-generated pieces can sell their work, depending on the platform they use. There is some legal debate about whether AI-generated images can be copyrighted, but OpenAI recently announced that DALL E 2 can now be used to do business — that is, the person who directs the device can sell the resulting work.
We’ve already seen some people do this, selling their business as NFTs. Christie’s has sold an AI-generated work of art, “Edmond de Belamy, from La Famille de Belamy”, produced by the French art group Oburred, since 2018.
Can you tell if a piece of art was made by artificial intelligence?
At first it was deep fake, now it’s artificial intelligence art generators. It became difficult to tell if something was real or fake, and whether something was created by a human or a machine. With the images generated by some free AI art generator, it’s fairly straightforward as they tend to contain glitches, blurriness and weird effects that no human artist would create (unless they were deliberately trying to replicate the look of an AI art creator – now it’s It gets complicated!).
It can be hard to spot some of the more advanced modern releases like the DALL E 2. Yes, a lot of images still have a valley-like look, but a lot of the platform’s output can pass for illustration or human-created photography. The only giveaway may be when the artist leaves the signature of the AI art creator – in the case of DALL E 2, this is a row of colored squares in the lower right of the image.
