This model is aimed for photorealism but at the same time versatile and flexible with its generations. When I first made this model, I didn't really have any intention of releasing it but since I got so many request for it, I'm doing it anyway. The original base model I made was alright, it was realistic enough. But I wanted to add more versatility and diversity into it so I merge it with some of my favorite models that I've used before..
I think it's pretty okay for now with a few minor kinks that needs to be ironed out. But I'm a bit busy with some personal irl stuff now so it'll take a while for me to get to it. Feel free to leave any comments if you find any issues with it. I'll get back to it whenever I can..
What's new in version 2.0:
Slightly more photorealistic without sacrificing too much of its versatility
Easier to generate different ethnicity and race
More diverse body types (skinny and slender is still a little harder to generate without muscles, but I will work on that in the next update)
Penises are a lot better now, but prompting for specific penis types (erect, flaccid, etc) and size is still a little wonky. It works fine if your character is completely nude, but if clothes are involved, its basically random and often times it'll default to flaccid.
Slightly improved armpit hair and anus
Can generate a few basic faces of mainstream actors and celebrities without the need of LORAs
These are just some examples of the settings I usually use and it's not really a hard requirement so you're free to experiment and see which setting works best for you:
Sampling Method: DPM++ 2M Karras or DPM++ SDE Karras
Sampling Steps: 25 - 50
Hires. fix: On
Hires Steps: I usually put it at 0 so it'll be the same as Sampling Steps
Denoising Strength: 0.25 - 0.35
Upscale: 1.5 - 2
CFG Scale: 4.5 - 8
Try to keep the prompts short and concise. No need to fill up the prompts with unnecessary wording that does the same thing like high detail, ultra detail, absurdres, hires, photorealistic, hyperrealistic, etc. Keep it simple.
ADetailer is key if you want to get good looking faces. If you're generating a close up shot or portrait, most of the time you won't need it. But if its a full body or far shot, ADetailer is absolutely necessary unless you wanna get distorted or blurry looking faces. I also highly suggest using this Penis ADetailer if you're working with penis stuff, but only if it's necessary. Sometimes it did more harm than good so only use it if the penis looks off or blurry.
Hires fix is highly recommended, especially for far and wide shots where a lot of details are getting lost. And if you're using LORAs, it is mandatory to use it because without it, the output might look a little blurry and overcooked.
Use StableSR extension in your webui if you have a low VRAM and can't use Hires Fix without getting errors. It's slower, but it allows you to upscale even higher than x2.
Use negative embeddings instead if writing paragraphs of words into the negative prompts. Here are some examples of the ones I usually use:
