I'm sure you noticed what looks like some glasses earpiece floating mid-air... You probably didn't ask for it in your description... Yes, additional work is needed!

Ciao from Massimo

Artifacts of any kind of sampling algorithm seem unavoidable and have to be retouched. Focus stacking is replete with artifacts unless you are very skilled or lucky, IMO. I have done going on 10,000 Midjourney images and I don' (as with this one) bother to edit out artifacts with each one. Here I am just giving you an idea for illustrative purposes.

Reminds me of a comic book named "FONE", where in a sci-fi world a human and a humanoid are stranded onto a planet, only to find a supercomputer intent on publishing every combinatorially possible aggregation of words

Look here: https://loscomicsdemachete.blogspot.com/2016/09/fone-de-milo-manara.html

The original by Milo Manara is in Italian, here it's in Spanish...

The humanoid digs out a book that is telling their fate event after event, except there's glitches, where the human is riding a gigantic baby, or standing upon a pilflar (should be pillar, it disappears under the feet of the human), or the humanoid turns into a naked chick ::). Finally no more glitches until the end, which reads FONE (should be "FINE" in Italian, we could render it as "THE UND" in English)

AI as it is now aggregates existing content to create new content. The next step (challenging), where I would see real AI, is to create new content from scratch

In other words, give a monkey a typewriter, and maybe some day she'll write a poem

Since evolution has given us TWO ears and ONE mouth, we are supposed (me included) to be doing more listening than talking.
