The neural network completed the famous paintings and memes for specific requests: 10 examples

OpenAI recently added a new Outpainting feature to their DALL-E artificial intelligence model. With its help, the neural network can expand the boundaries of paintings and any other images, drawing something on a specific user request.

“Girl with a Pearl Earring” Original

For demonstration, the developers used the painting by Johann Vermeer “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. DALL-E, with the help of human prompts, “imagined” that he was behind the scenes of the portrait, and gradually completed it.

Note that even from the limited information provided by the canvas itself, the neural network did the job, mimicking the author’s style – mimicking the shadows and highlights of the original.

DALL-E users have appreciated Outpainting and have already published many really interesting extended versions of famous paintings and illustrations. Here is some of them.

1. “Napoleon at the St. Bernard Pass”, Jacques Louis David

It is difficult to distinguish the work of a neural network – a very accurately supplemented original of a famous painting.

The author obviously mocked with tips, but it turned out funny.

4. “Dogs play poker” by Cassius Coolidge

The original picture is good in itself.


But with DALL-E, the picture literally sparkled with new colors.

Here, the neural network accurately determined the style and retained it while expanding the image borders.

The famous frame and cover of the band’s self-titled album.


And this is how it could look when shooting with wide-angle optics.

The original is known to everyone, but you hardly saw the version with a UFO, fire and some kind of monster.
