Takeaways

  • ๐ŸŽจ Use the term 'DMT art style' for psychedelic, vivid, and colorful imagery with abstract and geometric patterns.
  • ๐Ÿ•น Prompt with '8-bit' to get images in the style of early video games, often pixelated and blocky with a limited color palette.
  • ๐Ÿ”ฒ Try 'pixelated' for images with a limited color palette and large, blocky pixels with jagged edges.
  • ๐ŸŒ 'Pointillism' uses small dots or strokes of color to create an image, resulting in a less jagged effect compared to pixelated or 8-bit styles.
  • ๐Ÿ†’ Add 'core' to words for a cool vibe, with examples like 'dream core', 'cottage core', or 'weird core'.

Q & A

  • What is the DMT art style and how is it typically characterized?

    -The DMT art style is inspired by experiences associated with the use of psychedelic drugs. It is characterized by intense, vivid, and colorful imagery, often featuring abstract and geometric patterns, fractals, and otherworldly landscapes.

  • How does the 8-bit art style differ from pixelated art?

    -The 8-bit art style is reminiscent of early video games from the 1970s and 80s, with pixelated and blocky images and a limited color palette. Pixelated art, on the other hand, is created by placing individual pixels in a grid to form a larger image, often resulting in large blocky pixels and visible jagged edges along diagonal lines.

  • What is pointillism and how does it affect the appearance of an image?

    -Pointillism is an art movement that uses small dots or strokes of color to create an image. The term comes from the French word 'point' which means dot. Pointillism results in images that are less jagged than pixelated or 8-bit images, creating a more subtle and detailed visual effect.

  • What is the effect of using the term 'core' in art prompts?

    -Attaching the term 'core' to other words can create an official art style or add a unique and cool vibe to the prompt. For example, 'dream core', 'cottage core', or 'weird core' are all styles that can be invoked using this technique.

  • How does infrared photography differ from full spectrum infrared photography?

    -Infrared photography captures light that is not normally visible to the human eye, resulting in unnatural colors such as dark skies and pink trees. Full spectrum infrared photography, when requested, provides a more colorful result, as opposed to the typical pink foliage or pure black and white of standard infrared photography.

  • What is the simulated effect produced by the term 'tilt shift' in photography?

    -Tilt shift is a type of lens often used in architectural photography. When used as a term in prompts, it produces a simulated miniaturization effect, which is often whimsical and dreamy, created with out-of-focus bands at the top and bottom of the image.

  • What is trompe l'oeil and how does it create an optical illusion?

    -Trompe l'oeil is a painted optical illusion that makes the depicted objects appear as if they are real and three-dimensional. It deceives the eye, suggesting that there might be an opening in the space-time continuum or a hole in the canvas.

  • How does anamorphic art differ from the 3D effect produced by prompting 'ambient occlusion'?

    -Anamorphic art is designed to appear normal when viewed from certain angles or with a special device but distorted or abstract from others. Ambient occlusion, when prompted, adds depth and realism to a 3D scene by simulating subtle shadows, resulting in a grayscale effect or a 3D model with added depth through shadows.

  • What is geometric abstraction and how does it express complex ideas or emotions?

    -Geometric abstraction is an art style that uses geometric shapes and patterns to create an abstract image. It expresses complex ideas or emotions through simple shapes and colors, generally resulting in minimalist images with clean lines, simple shapes, and a limited color palette.

  • What is the significance of the mandala in art and how does it appear when prompted?

    -The mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, often depicted as a circular design. When prompted, it results in intricate, detailed circular patterns, usually with a symmetrical design.

  • How does the term 'Art Nouveau' influence the style of images created?

    -Art Nouveau is characterized by organic and flowing forms, often inspired by nature. When used as a term in prompts, it creates highly decorative images with a lot of background detail, focusing on elements like flowers, leaves, and other natural forms.

  • What is the kinsugi art form and how does it reflect the beauty of embracing flaws?

    -Kinsugi is a Japanese art form where breaks and repairs are treated as part of the object's history. Cracks are mended with gold, symbolizing the beauty and strength of embracing flaws. When prompted, it often results in gold veins and golden effects in the artwork.

  • What is the effect of using the term 'Boutique' in art prompts?

    -Boutique is a textile art from Indonesia known for highly stylized designs with intricate patterns and motifs. When used in a prompt, it creates intricate patterns, which in version 5 of mid-journey might also include the fabric itself.

  • How does the term 'kirigami' influence the style of AI-generated images?

    -Kirigami is a form of origami that involves both cutting and folding paper to create intricate designs. When prompted, it often results in textured, layered effects in the AI-generated images.

  • What is the visual effect produced by prompting for 'mosaic' in AI art creation?

    -A mosaic is a tile art form that creates images or patterns by arranging small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. Prompting for mosaic in AI art creation results in a pointillistic effect, but with more natural materials.

  • How does 'ferrofluid art' appear when prompted in AI, and what is its real-life counterpart?

    -Ferrofluid art, created by manipulating a liquid with magnetic nanoparticles, appears glossy with a knobbly textured surface when prompted in AI. In real life, it is a dynamic and ever-changing artwork that is both beautiful and fascinating to watch, as the liquid can be shaped by a magnetic field.
