If you use TikTok and have been wondering why so many people have been sharing photos of themselves in the style of a Tudor painting or even as a fairy, don't worry you're not the only one. 

The new viral trend has left many scratchy their heads trying to work out what it is people are doing to get artistic photos. 

But the trend is a lot more simple than it seems, as users have had the helping hand of an AI (Artificial intelligence) to create self-portraits. 

The rendered images are created by a software called Lensa which was created by Prisma AI. 

What is the Lensa AI art generator from TikTok? 

The Lensa AI app edits photos at the touch of a button, with features like face retouch and magic correction. 

But the apps currently rise to fame is down to filters that create exaggerated AI portraits. 

Describing the app, Prisma says: "This is not a filter or an effect. These AI avatars are generated from scratch but with your face in mind.

"Upload 10-20 pictures, give it a few minutes, and get hundreds of artworks created by #artificialintelligence for you!"

However, the fun photos are not free, if you want to buy your images it will cost you around £2 for 50 images. 

You can try out the feature now via Lensa
