Smile badly – a grin that doesn’t quite reach the eyes

Revised prompt

A close-up image of a person’s face portraying a forced smile. Their eyes, however, tell a different story and contradict the joy usually associated with a smile, hinting towards hidden sadness or discomfort. Shadows slightly obscure the face, highlighting the expressive mismatch.


DALL-E gave me the second half of the prompt.

But it produced a cartoon of a gurning child.

Bings attempts were all teeth and bloodshot eyes.

Sampled from Spanish Break.
