The DALL·E image generator can produce spectacular visuals, but really stumbles over text. As a result, the tourism posters it comes up with are extremely good. Visit scenic Colado! #dalle https://t.co/419Lv9eJ1E

Pixel Art Diffusion by @KaliYuga_ai is a flavour of Disco Diffusion with a custom model trained on pixel art landscapes. The result is an output with a fun pixel art aesthetic. The results aren’t true pixel images, but it’s a great starting point and can always be further processed using something like http://pixelatorapp.com.
