So far…

Beautiful Creatures

I just adore the ability Midjourney gives me to literally mass-produce beautiful imagery…

… I don’t think a beginner could produce the consistent level of beauty that I am now producing because, believe me, Midjourney can produce some appalling garbage if you give it the wrong prompts, but I think that most beginners who are persistent, and perhaps as obsessive as I am, wouldn’t take too long to be doing what I am doing…

… I develop my themes, then I experiment with them. I’ve found Midjourney seems to remember my themes, and generally produces the type of imagery I’m going for, but I’ve also found that adding a single new prompt, or a new image for texture, in an attempt to fine-tune my results, can totally stuff up what I had going, and then it seems to lock onto the stuffed-up template, and I literally have to create new ones using the old template, so it can get it’s bearings again…

… on the other hand, Midjourney has often added amazing details I never asked it to add, which I’ve really loved, like with all these Celestial Fae; I’ve never once asked it to add wings!…

… and I loved the fact that it often put them on their heads, which led me to the explanation that Celestial Fae don’t really have ‘wings’, but cosmic energy that humans ‘see’ as wings. So, really, Midjourney prompted me with aspects of these images (:

Stardust

Celestial Fae are creatures of the cosmos…

… they are made of light and stardust, as are you, but in them it is a matter of degree…

… they have total control of their cosmic matter…

… they are beings of pure energy, which they can bend and mould to their own needs…

… they use energy to ‘fly’… they don’t really have ‘wings’, that’s just how they were perceived by primitive humans…

… humans ‘see’ that energy as ‘wings’…

… the Celestial Fae see it much as fish ‘see’ water, or humans ‘see’ air, which is to say, they don’t see it at all.

Aqua Dreams

I moved back, away from the more and more stylised visions of underwater girls I’ve done, recently…

… back to the way I was initially making them…

… a much more dream-like vision…

… more Ophelia-like…

… more mysterious…

… the more ‘Lowbrow’ style was fun to pursue…

… but this dark dream style is what I like most.

UnderWater Girls

I found myself creating more gorgeous underwater girls…

… I’m really pleased with the lowbrow look of these works…

… the beautiful weirdness…

… whereas my earlier underwater girls were dreamers in an aquatic dream…

… these girls aren’t dreaming…

… they are beautiful creatures, totally in their element.
