The Simpsons have been Turned into Real Life People and it’s Horrific


A talented artist named Hidreley Diao has created realistic versions of popular cartoon characters using a combination of Photoshop and three mobile apps.

In an article for Bored Panda, Diao explained how he used AI to make the characters look like real people.

The Simpson’s characters, including Moe Szyslak, Milhouse van Houten, Bart Simpson and Ned Flanders, were transformed into realistic-looking individuals with unsettling results.

Diao explained his inspiration for the project: “When we watch some animation, it is natural to accept the cartoonish proportions of the characters without any problems, after all, we are quite used to this type of trait. But what if, as in a spell, they became real, flesh and blood? I tried to bring them into our world through artificial intelligence.”

He used FaceApp, Gradiente, and Remini to generate the images. Diao added, “I wanted to try something out myself, and so I dove into the world of AI. This time, I challenged myself to try to do one on the theme of cartoon characters. In terms of how they all turned out, I’m more and more pleased with the results with each post I make.”

Diao also recreated Carl Fredricksen from Disney Pixar’s UP, Moana from Moana and Ariel from The Little Mermaid, among others. He said that he’s been exploring the world of artificial intelligence and that it’s a limitless world with no boundaries for digital art.

The artist has also been using AI to create images of historical figures, such as Zeus, Leonardo Da Vinci, Matau Tathonca, Hatsepsut, Mary Shelley, and even the Statue of Liberty. He wrote on Instagram, “What if they were living in the 21st century now? Imagine meeting one of them in a party, or even in a supermarket?”

Diao’s work has been met with mixed reactions from viewers. While some people found the images fascinating, others found them unsettling.

However, Diao’s creativity and his use of artificial intelligence to create these images demonstrate the limitless possibilities of the technology.
