Let A.I. Try to Make Your Perfect Anime Girl

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

A new website is utilizing artificial intelligence to make users ideal moe girls. MakeGirls.moe is the brainchild of Yanghua Jin and Jiakai Zhang and is based on a technical report distributed at this summer's Comiket 92. The site hopes to help the artistically challenged bring their ideas to life.

We all love anime characters and are tempted to create our custom ones. However, it takes tremendous efforts to master the skill of drawing, after which we are first capable of designing our own characters. To bridge this gap, the automatic generation of anime characters offers an opportunity to bring a custom character into existence without professional skill.
Create Anime Characters with A.I.!, Yanghua, Jiakai, Zhang, et al.

The site generates a character based on drop-down selections for hair and eye color, hair style, glasses, blushing, and smiling. Here's an example after an attempt to recreate myself.

I'm not sure what happened to the "hat" in the above left attempt. Looks like maybe a headband and white cat ears?

And then popular anime character Saber from the Fate franchise. Bun hair isn't a current option so I went with a ponytail.

What about Neon Genesis Evangelion's Rei Ayanami? Because of her specific hair shade, I tried both Grey and Blue options.

There's still some room from improvement, obviously. The lines aren't particularly clean in the end result and hair options are a bit limited. Go ahead and give it a shot.
