Making Art With Artificial Intelligence: Viaduct Bridges

Ivan Gantschev
Ivan Gantschev has a soft, atmospheric watercolour style perfect for a fairytale look.
This stock photo from Unsplash also has a fairytale look, so let’s see how an AI generator can work with both images to create something new.
Here we go. A Viaduct Bridge Ivan Gantschev style.
John Burningham’s cover art for Oi! Get Off My Train! (Ghost but for children?) I’ve removed the words in Affinity Photo because text only confuses AI art generators.
Let’s use this stock photo of a train crossing a viaduct bridge from Unsplash. The train is travelling in the opposite direction, but will NightCafe be okay with that?

Viaduct Bridge Bernard Sleigh style made with NightCafe. I’ve smoothed out the sky, which was the same texture as the land. I also added some pencil to highlight the viaduct bridge. I don’t think this is a particularly successful example of AI generated art, but it could be the start of something.

On paper, things look fine. Sam Dennon recently inherited significant wealth from his uncle. As a respected architect, Sam spends his days thinking about the family needs and rich lives of his clients. But privately? Even his enduring love of amateur astronomy is on the wane. Sam has built a sustainable-architecture display home for himself but hasn’t yet moved into it, preferring to sleep in his cocoon of a campervan. Although they never announced it publicly, Sam’s wife and business partner ended their marriage years ago due to lack of intimacy, leaving Sam with the sense he is irreparably broken.

Now his beloved uncle has died. An intensifying fear manifests as health anxiety, with night terrors from a half-remembered early childhood event. To assuage the loneliness, Sam embarks on a Personal Happiness Project:

1. Get a pet dog

2. Find a friend. Just one. Not too intense.
