Sleeping Beauty and the Beast

Since so many of the current Romantasy crop of novels involves variations or inspirations from the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast, here’s another mashup… in AI this time. The originals are here and here.

The Turkish Wizards of Love

I had to include these outtakes from my Wizard of Love series. They’re hilarious!

AI and the Window to the Multiverse

  One of the things that fascinates me about visual AI generations is how they allow one to peek into the multiverse. Not the real multiverse, mind you. That hasn’t been proved to exist. But an illusion of a multiverse, with different products, people, animals and buildings, all skewed greatly or slightly from our own …

AI Art Adventures: Zeus and Ganymede

One of the more oddball Greek myths I am fascinated with is that of Zeus and Ganymede. It’s NSFW so buckle up, and like most Greek myths, differs according to who tells it. Basically, Ganymede was a comely youth who caught the eye of Zeus so Zeus kidnapped him in the form of an eagle, …

Bonez

Strange and alien creatures abound in SFF media, but most of the time we don’t get to see their skeletons.

Of course there are some human skulls (still with spines) there, because man is the …
