AI-Art

Art generation using VQGAN + CLIP using docker containers. A simplified, updated, and expanded upon version of Kevin Costa's work. This project tries to make generating art as easy as possible for anyone with a GPU by providing a simple web UI.

Samples

For samples check out the AI Generated section on the art page on my website.

Using ai-art

This works best if you have an NVIDIA GPU however there is a fallback CPU mode included. I've found the CPU mode to take significantly longer than even the most basic of GPUs though.

Install Docker Desktop for your OS.

Quick start usage

Note that this creates a new directory in your current directory called ai-art for all output and model storage. Make sure it's where you want it to be.

docker run -it --rm --gpus all -p 3000:3000 -v ${pwd}/ai-art:/data overshard/ai-art

Once it's running you can access AI-Art in your browser at:

http://localhost:3000/

Development usage

Get the latest version of this project from GitHub:

git clone https://github.com/overshard/ai-art.git

Then run it with:

docker build --tag overshard/ai-art .
docker run -it --rm --gpus all -p 3000:3000 -v ${pwd}/data:/data overshard/ai-art

If you are using a docker container on Windows to develop this project like I am then you can use something like this to mount a directory on the host system from your development container:

docker run -it --rm --gpus all -p 3000:3000 -v "/C/Users/Isaac Bythewood/Documents/AI-Art:/data" overshard/ai-art

Image sizes

The larger the image the more VRAM your graphics card needs:

  • 6 GB of VRAM is required to generate 256x256 images.
  • 12 GB of VRAM is required to generate 512x512 images.
  • 24 GB of VRAM is required to generate 1024x1024 images.

If you don't know how much VRAM your graphics card has you probably have 6 GB or less so stick with smaller images.

That being said you can do non-square images if you want as long as you don't go above the number of pixels your GPU's VRAM supports, for example you could do ultrawide images with 6 GB of ram at "384x128" or do tall images at "128x384" and so on. You do not have to use numbers with a power of 2, "300x100" is also perfectly valid.
