I turned photos into cartoons with a neural network by using Cartoonify. For the image, I chose the memes that I created last week based on my old Instagram pictures. I found the results from my experiment to be really fascinating. The first image is quite accurate with me holding a pumpkin and having a smaller figure behind me. The second image, in which I appear to be inside a book, is my favorite.
Cartoonify deals with perspective with very creative methods that a human would not think of. I found my last image of a river to be a disappointment. The image is rather blank and only contains a small boat. While I enjoy employing machine learning, I prefer tools such as RunwayML that allow for greater creative freedom. I did not feel like I had much control with these experiments.
