This model is aimed for semi-realism or 2.5D style graphics and also was made to be as versatile and all-rounded as possible especially when combined with LORAs. Originally this was intended to be a 2D model but I accidentally made it too real especially after combining it with my HomoFidelis model. I was gonna rebuild it from the ground up because this is a pretty old model and I wanted to make some changes to it. But this is still a pretty decent model and people have been requesting for it so I'll post it here for now.
Rebuilt from scratch base off of my latest HomoFidelis model and my HomoSimile model. I realized that the previous version has a very toned down and dimmed color which I really starting to dislike. So I made this new merge with a more vibrant tone, plus with a slight improvement to realism. But not so much that it became a realistic model.
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++ 3M SDE Karras
Sampling Steps: 25 - 50
Hires. fix: On (optional)
Upscaler: ESRGAN 4x+ or 4x_NMKD-Siax_200k
Hires Steps: I usually put it at 0 so it'll be the same as Sampling Steps
Denoising Strength: 0.3 - 0.4
Upscale: 1.5 - 2
CFG Scale: 6.5 - 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 kinda optional for this one unless your faces are really far away and distorted. But it does help adding extra details to your character's faces with things like lines, shading, eye details, eye color, face contour, etc. Use either face_yolov8n or mediapipe_face_mesh..
Use negative embeddings instead if writing paragraphs of words into the negative prompts. Here are some examples of the ones I usually use:
