I don't know how many of you are already using it but this artbreeder is really helping me with custom assets for my game.

With some patience, it can pretty much generate unlimited custom character sprites, visual novel BGs, faces, etc. With some editing, it's really amazing how much you can do, and I think all art you generate is copyright free.

Hopefully, artbreeder will add VN too in the future, already possible but nobody is focusing in it.
I wish the next RPG maker would come built-in with such a tool.

AHH! This is so weird. But so good for a migraine day (except the white). I can just clicky and things happen.

You're not the only one with a migraine. I had one start yesterday and it's not done yet..... :(

I think with some practice you can generate high-quality artwork from there, but I think it takes some time to get used to.

It can also be used to automatically color some line-art drawings if you upload as a portrait and add the "art" attribute to it.

Internal server error whenever I try to log in to it, so guess I won't be trying it tonight.

here it's working perfectly, maybe it's your browser? Or you could use a vpn.

I actually for fun had it do a few of the faces from The Book of Shadows. Here is what I got after a few iterations for Josie and Savina.

I ended up getting it working. Needed to create an account manually instead of trying to log in with Google. Oauth is broken on it, but registration is not.

Booooooo. Mine usually only last a few hours to a day, with the "migraine hangover" the next day. But mine also come with a notable visual aura to warn my that if I don't take appropriate pain killers right away, I will be in for a much bigger world of hurt.

Weird, the log in with Google thing worked just fine for me. :o

Most of my migraines have traditionally been mostly visual but the past few years I'm getting more of the headache type and they can last a few days. I'm running over 48 hours on this one so far but it seems to be starting to fade now....

I'm also a human barometer which doesn't help as I tend to get headaches as well as joint aches with pressure changes which is why it's VERY uncomfortable to fly.....

I didn't even try the Google login as I'm very hesitant to use single login for everything. I've been around networks and security for decades. I don't even use the same email address for everything as I have a ton of email addresses at my disposal which helps me track who got their email list hacked if I start getting spam to that particular email address. I have literally hundreds of email addresses filtering into a security service that kills the spam rather nicely :) I also have a quite a few email addresses that I've killed off over the years after all they got was spam.

I logged in with google fine. Interesting site. seems like it'd take a while to make anything decent enough to fit with rm stuff though :D

Been playing around with it, and I still have no idea what I'm doing. The sliders don't seem to do much at all unless you crank them way up, but then everything looks weird; some don't seem to do anything at all. Is this actually creating new art, or is it just selecting from a pool of premade art and altering the contrast and other values?

it creates new art with the power of AI :D, you might want to crossbreed with other art you like too for best results. If they don't do anything I think it's probably because the picture is loading.
My profile pic was created this way btw.

I find to get best results you have to crossbreed with other art, then the sliders can help fine tune it. Also you can get some decent results by telling it to generate children, I find that helps sometimes to shake it up a little as well.

I'd suggest being a little careful with things like artbreeder. It's theoretically creative commons, but the original material is uploaded by the users and can (and definitely does) include copyrighted art, so it's entirely possible that the final product is recognizable as the original character or drawing.

Daz3D has the weirdest number scheme for model generations...
Genesis 4 is the 4th generation and oldest currently available, Genesis 1 is the 5th generation, Genesis 2 is the 6th, 3 is the 7th.... And then it goes Genesis 8. So 4, 1, 2, 3, 8. So when looking through there store you have to remember that sometimes they'll say 6 but they mean 3, and vice versa. :kaoswt:
Would opening a topic with the tutorial be interesting?
