Trained StyleGAN2 on pictures of my cat.
StyleGAN2 had been originally trained on human faces.
This is an intermediate training stage.

Not sure whether to laugh or scream

@janellecshane

ooh the software you link to in your blog post looks really interesting!

@janellecshane this reminds me a bit of medieval illustrations of animals that were drawn from hearsay rather than models. "Well, it's supposed to look like a horse with humps, and I know how to draw... *looks out window* a dog, so here's a camel."

@janellecshane The Killrathi Empire sure have fallen on hard times since they stopped making Wing Commander games.

@janellecshane LOL. Oh no... this is amazing and horrifying at the same time. :)

@janellecshane At first I thought these were faces from that Cats movie that came out a while back.

@janellecshane Was there something about the training pictures of your cat that caused the green forehead tufts on several of the output images, or is something else going on?

@pebble I didn’t notice those! I think they’re some kind of mode collapse artifact that was present in the original StyleGAN model, a bunch of neurons that came out kind of funny.

@janellecshane Ah, you have reverse-engineered the approach they used in the CATS movie.
