Looking for recommendations for GLIDE-like portrait generator


I am looking for recommendations for tool(s) that will let me generate recognizable(ish) portraits of historical and fictional persons. I have tried various permutations of GLIDE, VQGAN+GLIP, etc. My key requirements are:

  1. able to create recognizable faces - can be pen & ink, pixel, pencil-style, whatever
  2. at command line or as function parameter (not just as a Jupyter notebook)
  3. reading text prompts from another object or file
  4. reasonably fast, i.e. on the order of 1-10 seconds
  5. not overly expensive

Would appreciate any ideas from the hive mind!


Hope these will help to strike inspiration:
