What Animators Would Look Like in the Style of Their Characters

year ago

When we think of animation, the first association that likely comes to mind is Walt Disney. However, animated movies existed long before this famous company became well-known. The first animated film was made in 1906 by French cartoonist Émile Cohl, who is often referred to as “the father of the animated cartoon.” We decided to see what would happen if we combined animators with their characters with the help of AI.
