If you've seen any of what I've been doing, you probably know that I'm trying to create LoRAs for use in rpgs. Primarily medieval rpgs (e.g.; D&D, Pathfinder, whatever), but I am going to extend that into other genres at some point when I feel like doing something different. Probably Lovecraftian stuff will be interspersed as well (e.g.; Call of Cthulhu, Delta Green).
Anyhow, I'm planning on progressing through the super common low level and town encounter npcs and beings first. I might go back and revisit or update old LoRAs, but more than likely, I'll check and see if they work with newer checkpoints.
Recently, I've been just going back to some of the earlier LoRAs and trying them out with newer checkpoints, and they honestly have been not just holding up, but looking much better due to all of the fine work people are putting into checkpoints.
If you have specific beings/npcs that you may want to see, post them in comments and I will take them into consideration. Sometimes I'm getting stuck on a particular entity and someone else's idea or suggestion may be a welcome change or reinforcement as to what I want to do.
Anyhow, cheers and hope you enjoy!
Alright! So I think I'm caught up on XL versions of the original 1.5 LoRAs.
From now on, both 1.5 and XLs. 1.5 first and then XLs once I'm happy with them. I will be using larger format training images than is needed for 1.5, so the XL should go smoothly. I may up some of the XL training images at times, but on a case-by-case basis.
I did notice the size of the XL LoRAs is pretty significant. I'm going to do some investigation into lowering the file size of the XL LoRAs while keeping the resolution still at 1k by 1k or higher for all training images. If I get near to the same visual detail with a lower file size, I'll be happy.
NOTE: I am actually thinking I'm over-training the XL LoRAs. I'm being forced to drop the contribution of those models severely to get good variation. We'll see...
Short List of Critters

Chimera (I'll return to these later - the 3 heads is causing issues with StabDiff)
