Here are some amazing 3D projects made by Akira Saito using Houdini and the Stable Diffusion AI.
With the growing popularity of various text-to-image AIs, it is no wonder that many 2D Artists started implementing them to some extent to either create or improve their works. Recently, however, some 3D Artists started experimenting with those AIs as well, creating and discovering new ways to utilize Midjourney, DALL-E 2, DD, and others to produce high-quality 3D works.
One of such artists is Akira Saito, who recently shared a small collection of beautiful pieces created using a combination of Stable Diffusion, a recently-open-sourced text-to-image diffusion model capable of creating great images from text prompts and rough sketches, and SideFX's Houdini. Using the former, the artist generates regular 2D images and then gives them depth and 3D looks in Houdini.
"The output of Stable Diffusion is Latent Diffusion Models. After super-resolution with Boosting Monocular Depth Estimation Models to High-Resolution via Content-Adaptive Multi-Resolution Merging, the depth is obtained Houdini and three-dimensionalized," comments the artist.
Below are some examples shared by Akira in recent days:
