-Ornithopthèron is an exploration in evoking a world, a dream, a sense of adventure, rather than describing concrete objects or scenes. I'm using generative AI here, and I'm embracing the limitations of the medium (the fact that it rarely gets things right) rather than pushing it to realism. I think the dumbness, the mindlessness of AI leads to much more interesting roads than its ability to copy something perfectly.

-These images were made by using Midjourney for generation, Stable diffusion for extracting (some sort of) depth map, and custom textures, filters and editing in Photoshop.

-I fully support the cause of ethically sourced AI imagery, and I'm trying to use these tools responsibly.
