[AI Art Weekly] @GanWeaving, what is your favourite prompt when creating art?

One prompt that I really like is petting zoo with alien creatures (example).

Another one is boys/girls fixing their robotic toys (girls, boys, video animation).

[AI Art Weekly] Who is your favourite artist?

I don’t have one favourite artist. I won’t mention the very well known ones, instead I’ll list a couple of probably lesser known ones: Mattias Adolfsson, Enki Bilal and Shaun Tan.

[AI Art Weekly] What does your workflow look like?

Since I’m mostly doing StableDiffusion these days, I’m usually quickly iterating ideas on, playing around with prompt variations, and mixing different artists to see if there’s a style coming out of this that I really like. And then I will use those prompts in the Deforum notebook on Google Colab and experiment a lot with its parameters. Either for still images or animations.

[AI Art Weekly] Anything else you would like to share?

Just play around with these wonderful new tools. Brush up your art history! Look up historical artists and art styles. Mash things together! Feed paradoxes to the machine and curate the outputs. And above all, don’t forget: Everything is a remix! Let no one tell you differently. Especially not that AI art is just pushing a button or copy-pasting. Only ignorant people will claim this. Educate them!
