Stability AI, a groundbreaking startup specializing in artificial intelligence-driven visual art, has made waves with its innovative implementation of OpenAI tools. The company, known for its image-generating model called Stable Diffusion, has now introduced a new service: Stable Doodle, a sketch-to-image transformation tool. Leveraging the latest iteration of the Stable Diffusion Model, Stable Doodle analyzes the structure of a sketch and converts it into a visually pleasing image.
While Stability AI primarily caters to research communities focused on developing AI models, their services have become accessible through ClioDrop, a platform they acquired in March after purchasing ML, an AI startup founded by former Google employees. Stability AI aims to empower both professionals and novices, regardless of their familiarity with AI tools. With Stable Doodle, individuals possessing basic drawing skills and internet access can effortlessly generate high-quality original images within seconds.
Setting itself apart from other sketch-to-image tools in the market, Stable Doodle boasts advanced features that offer users more precise control over the image generation process. Stability AI emphasizes that the app provides greater flexibility and enables better fine-tuning of output artwork.
Stable Diffusion XL, a variant of the Stable Diffusion model, incorporates a ‘conditional control solution’ developed by Tencent’s renowned R&D division, the applied research center. This control method, known as T2I-Adapter, allows Stable Diffusion XL to analyze sketch outlines and guide the model towards producing refined output artwork.
Stable Doodle accepts a variety of prompts to guide the image generation, such as “A comfy chair, ‘isometric’ style” or “Cat with a jeans jacket, ‘digital art’ style.” However, the customization options are currently limited, as Stable Doodle supports only 14 art styles at launch.
In addition to serving research communities, Stability AI also caters to designers, illustrators, and other media professionals, aiming to optimize their productivity and streamline their tasks. The quality of the output images depends on the level of detail in the initial sketch and the specifics of the prompts, including the complexity of the scene.
Stability AI, the world’s largest generative AI company, has experienced rapid growth in recent years. Their ultimate vision is to unlock humanity’s potential by establishing a solid foundation in the field of generative AI. With Stable Doodle’s capabilities, users can swiftly translate their sketches into practical designs for clients, presentation materials, websites, or even logos. Moving forward, Stable Doodle plans to expand its functionality, including specific use cases tailored to various industries, such as real estate applications.
