A.I.

Since the March 2022 I have been testing the incredible new AI programme MidJourney and have been getting some really wild results. As a power user Ive been collecting a great deal of oddities in various styles and tones, far too many to show all.¬† Below are a few randomly chosen examples of the styles and madness I’m trying to capture. The programme can and does create¬†pretty stuff, I’m naturally pulled towards the weird and wonky. Please don’t continue if you want to hold onto your lunch.

To see more please follow me on facebook and instagram.

A few pages from a very large collection.

Fairies & Devils

Ladies of the Deep

AI Children’s Book – Peter’s Funeral

After grabbing a batch of children’s book AI artwork I tried to put a few words alongside it. Difficult to really write anything first, rather work backwards from what you find, especially if you want to keep in the same style.

A Robot giving birth to a dog

With MidJourney, once you’ve typed in your ‘prompt’ you are given a selection of 4 images. From here you can go with all 4 or choose your favourite. From those you can then make a variation, which will bring up another 4 possibilities. But what if you carried on down this rabbit hole until your eyes start bleeding at 3am? I tried ‘Robot giving birth to a Dog’ and followed my favourite images into a demented hall of mirrors. Here’s original first image and the process it went through…

Nightmares

Gummy Bears

Batman & friends

Family Photos

 

Disney Princesses

17th century Beasts

This particular series went to some very dark places. Believe it or not, these are some of the milder ones.

 

It’s a Girl

17th century peasant body horror and then later, with a dash of ‘Tron’. Sweet Lord.
