Untooned Man from DOOM

Jemand auf Reddit hat dem berühmten ‚Pixel-Haufen DOOM Typen‘ ein fotorealistisches Facelift gegeben. Dazu benutze er ein Zeichenprogramm Neural Networks und Photoshop. Und schon ist der ‚Man from DOOM‘ zum Leben erwacht.


Es sollte mehr Entpixelungen dieser Art geben. Und wird es, wenn man sich den aktuellen Trend von „remasterten“ 16 Bit Games anschaut vielleicht auch im immer größeren Stil.

According to the Reddit thread, the original “Doom Guy” sprite was fed into the AI of photo-editing programs including FaceApp, Waifu2x, and GIMP. That resulted in an improved, but still very pixelated and maybe pinkeye-infected version of the face.

From there, the image was fed into StyleGAN, the Nvidia AI system that people have used to create photorealistic portraits and nightmarish Pokémon sprites. StyleGAN churned out a more realistic image then took another pass to smooth it out. But because the original sprite had unrealistic proportions, the new image was manually reshaped, into this final version.
