My last blog article was about how it was fun and funny to create images, creatures, things, worlds and landscapes with an AI interface.
Yesterday I made those – oh I know, there are many colors here 🙂
So I began to think about “what words should I choose?” to make the best results.
I have to add just one word to create an effect
Is “magical” useful for the first picture? “james-gurney-panoramic-entrance-of-magical-forest-full-or-fireflies”.
I can add a name like Dali or Giger, here James Gurney on the 2nd picture. I wonder if the word “detailed” is effective: “detailed, james gurney, orbital panoramic garden”
I can “ask” less color and some bokeh (the blurry aspect of what’s far) in the 3rd: “in black and white, bridge landscape in the city night, under the rain, bokeh”
Or I can describe precisely a frame (like for the 4th one: “artist’s tools on black paper with a lamp on a desk”
I found these tips on a page:
Landscapes and scenes where the focus is not a single object tend to be most realistic
Prompts can be long, detailed and specific: eg. ‘young sorcerer heiress of a cyberpunk corporation, with dragons on her side’
You can have multiple prompts in a single image. Divide each prompt with the | character
Try using ‘unreal engine’, ‘photorealistic’, ‘van gogh’ or any other widely known style or artist in your prompts
You can assign relative weights to prompts using this syntax: ‘green cloudy dog:50 | snowy:25 | christmas:25’. The absolute values are irrelevant – the weights are relative to each other.
You can assign a weight of 0 to a prompt to eliminate a concept from the image: eg. ‘christmas | santa: 0’
I also follow some Twitter accounts (including by the person who invented this). Try #vqganclip.
They play with words too. Some persons are so good they don’t give the key words used for their marvels. That’s life!
If I add “painting” it had some brushstroke effect. I have to find artists’ names to mimic their style.
