  • Pros: 



    Waste of time. Go make money someplace.

    I uploaded 5 images-3 failed 2 came back like some mentally challenged had a pencil stuck in their nose and face planted the screen/ !0 minutes I'll never get back...

Hi Product Hunt fam - We took a break from building Kapwing to make Cartoonify, an artificially-intelligent sketch artist that illustrates what happens when you ask a computer to draw (spoiler: your 5-year-old cousin has better skillz 👩🏽‍🎨) We wanted to explore TensorFlow and show off the work of Dan Macnish. This is our first AI project so we're still learning a lot about the technology! It's exciting to develop on the frontier of ML-powered creativity 💻🖌 We'd love to see your best and funniest cartoons! Happy cartooning

Brilliant. While very different, this reminds me of Google's Autodraw. RIP, artists. J/k. 😉

So relieved that the bots won't take over any time soon :)

@oschettler haha just wait! We're hoping to bring some machine intelligence to video editing with Kapwing. At least put the bots to work enabling artsy humans with smarter, better tools.

Congrats for the launch, it's very funny to use :) Beside the fact my 5-year-old cousin has better draw skill, it makes me curious about the AI algorithm behind the tool
