This is a non-anime model that can handle illustrated styles in addition to photorealistic (trends to semirealistic by default).
For Illustrated images
For Illustrated, cartoon, or comic/graphic novel style results, make sure "illustration" is in the positive prompt.
Recommended negative prompt for illustrated images:
3D digital, photo, blurred, grainy, low quality, artist name, signature, watermark, text, web address
You can embellish an illustration with further styles, such as the specific artist names listed in the triggers for this model, or with a hybrid illustrated style using the keyword phrase "ligne claire illustration"
For Photorealistic images
Recommended negative prompt for realistic photographs:
3D digital illustration, blurred, grainy, low quality
Artist styles that this model was explicitly trained to on include Roy Krenkel, Jean-Pierre Gibrat, Milo Manara, Willy Vendersteen, Francois Schuiten, Edgar P Jacobs, Herge, Jacques Tardi, and Moebius.
To invoke a specific artist styles, simply add "by Artist Name" to the positive prompt, e.g., "illustration of a woman on a tropical beach, by Roy Krenkel"
Artist names can have a very strong impact; try them with weak weights, e.g. "(by Roy Krenkel:0.1)" or "(by Jean-Pierre Gibrat:0.1)" and see how a dash of their style influences the composition and color scheme.
This model contains a general activation keyword phrase to evoke a certain hybrid comic book style and composition. This phrase is "ligne claire" meaning "clear line" after the Franco-Belgian comic book tradition.
For example: "A ligne claire illustration of a female science fiction bounty hunter."
A funny thing happened when I was training my photorealistic Centerfold Blend. I found that when I incorporated illustrated images in the training data (properly tagged, of course) the model produced better photorealistic images.
Centerflex is an extension of an older version of Centerfold Blend, with a great deal more non-photographic training data. It is intended to be more flexible than Centerfold (hence the name Center+Flex), especially regarding illustrated styles. It was trained with a variety of artist styles in addition to high quality photographs of people.
