A digital artist has created a fascinating series of artificial intelligence (AI) images that imagine what the children of famous fictional couples from movies and TV would look like.
Artist Hidreley Leli Diao has created a set of hyper-realistic portraits that show the children of Titanic’s Rose Dewitt Bukateer and Jack Dawson and Friends’s Ross Gellar and Rachel Green, and Sandy Olsson And Danny Zuko from Grease among others.

“Even if a movie or series ends with a ‘happily ever after,’ it does not mean that we will see the characters get married, have children, and grow old together,” Diao writes.
“Therefore, it is normal for us to be curious to know what the heirs of some of the most famous couples in fiction would look like.”

Diao researches famous couples from films and television shows and sources the best photos of the pair of characters. He then uses various AI software to create images of their fictional children.
“I was able to create a mechanism that uses three applications and Photoshop to achieve this result,” Diao tells PetaPixel.
“I use Faceapp, Remini and Gradiente. Photoshop is to give the finishing touches, as the artificial intelligence cannot reach 100% of the similarity with the parents.”

Diao praises AI and the creative potential that is possible with the new technology.
“It’s amazing what artificial intelligence can do these days,” Diao says. “I believe that artificial intelligence has arrived to show us a new platform for art. It’s certainly here to stay.”
PetaPixel previously shared Diao’s AI images of what cartoon characters would look like in real life.
His images brought cartoon characters like Moe in The Simpsons, Carl Frederickson from Up, and Ariel from The Little Mermaid to life.
