The Inimitable John Candy

John Candy has been an elusive subject for Midjourney.  Let's look at various attempts by Midjourney members to create an accurate likeness of the comedian.

I wanted to see how Candy would look as The Grinch.

I will celebrate on the day that Midjourney can give me a perfect image of The Three Stooges, or Laurel and Hardy, or Buster Keaton.  This is a recent effort by piebaby to depict the Stooges.  

I, myself, produced these images.  

Of course, these look nothing at all like the Stooges.  

I know, I know, this doesn't look like Laurel and Hardy.  But let us pretend that this is an alternate universe Laurel and Hardy.  We can call them Laurence and Horace.  

Laurence and Horace are transplanted onto a H.R. Giger-designed set by cosmicdiadrone.

This is how Midjourney envisions Buster Keaton as Mad Max.

Midjourney will certainly reach a new level when it manages to capture Cary Grant’s distinct good looks and debonair style.  As of now, the AI programs fall far short of getting Grant right.


Microsoft Image Creator

Grant meets a 1950s robot in this image created by jcichowski.  I made a couple of alterations to the image. 

Grant was cast as an assassin by pheritz.

Midjourney can capture an accurate likeness of two comedians, Robin Williams and Bill Murray.  I produced these images of Williams within minutes.

I assembled my images of Murray into a video slideshow.  I generated most of the images myself, but a few of the images came from the following Midjourney members: addictionink, Ben_Sano and Comprehensive_Ask987.
