Final Thoughts

In a delightful turn of events, the charming French Bulldog has nabbed the top spot this year! πŸ†πŸΎ

To showcase the evolution of generative art, we've revved up our process, employing an SDXL refined model. It's like comparing a vintage Polaroid to the latest DSLR – the difference is striking! This year, we've switched our virtual camera lens to an 85mm f1.8. Why, you ask? Because the 85mm is a portrait photographer's magic wand. It transforms our canine models into furry celebrities, compressing features and wrapping them in a creamy bokeh. The result? Each doggo stands out like the star of a 3D movie – so lifelike, you'd want to reach out and pet them!
