MOHAWK V2.0 Update!

For the first time ( suggested by some members here and students, I opened a KO-FI page ( links above ) .. For those who wish, you can participate by helping me acquire a more powerful GPU than my 2080ti, you never know :) In any case, it would clearly help me work faster. All the best!


It's a massive upgrade! I had so much catching up to do with my work on the CHEYENNE model.

I've continued to improve realism and the notion of concept art for rich and varied sketched renderings. There will always be time to improve the details in text2image if necessary. In short, CFG is important and has a huge influence on renderings.

In detail, I worked on :

- Realism ++++

- Widening the shot (wide angle) +++

- Architecture +++

- Details in general ++

- textures ++

- ..

It's now a solid base and I'm going to be able to go back a bit to the 2.5D/3D mix specific to Mohawk.

Like Faeia in her great model Faetastic Faeia said :

However, I am very opposed to having my model and resources I personally train and test and spend hundreds of hours on, be put up on third-party generation sites for their monetary gain where I receive nothing in return.

V1.8 et V1.8(VAE-BAKED) UPDATE //

Hello everyone and peace on earth... I'd like to offer you this new update, which I hope will win you over as it did me. Over 50 merges from Loras and Modeles (too many to mention but I'd like to thank them all for sharing! ).
I've tried to make up for a few lacks in detail, realism, abstraction, text management, sharpness and above all creativity. I think I'm on the right track now!

For the VAE backed version, it's my first one so tell me is something wrong !

This is a major update for the future of MoHawk and I hope you'll download it and, above all, send me your images so that I can better appreciate where I can improve it, thanks to your criticism and feedback.

I wish you all joy and happiness in these very complicated times...

Best regards
Antoine Aurety


v1.6 Update It's a massive update! I encourage you to download it.

First of all, I'd like to thank
Render Realm for his gigantic work on his SDXL model review, where he placed MOHAWK_ among his favourites. This has given MOHAWK a bit of visibility amongst all the wonderful models available here, of which MOHAWK is only the offspring because it's a Merged Model... As well as all the authors of the LORAs who are helping me to take small steps towards this new update. Thank you all so much!

IMPORTANT: This model requires a VAE which is not included. I'm using the classic SDXL.VAE. Alternative VAE :

I've pushed the cursors a bit in all directions (realism, beautiful faces, textures, materials, complex compositions, details, illustration, matte painting, concept art, etc.) and I hope you like the result as much as I do. I try to respect an editorial process where each evolution doesn't erase the previous model, but evolves it in small, sensitive steps.

Thank you to everyone who posts images and gives me feedback and criticism (even bad criticism!). This model was conceived as a support for my 3D courses, and I'm doing it as a hobbyist, with the desire to share my knowledge and my vision. I just hope it reaches you.



v1.4 Update _ More than 30 mergers ( Lora + Checkpoints )... just a few small details but the result is there, I think! It's a nice update that respects my editorial wishes... The emphasis has once again been placed on matte painting, details and a little more contrast... It's reduced the quality of the full-body faces a little, but I've really gained in close-up and detail of the skin and textures in general... It's also a little more realistic.

I hope you like it, and thanks to those who posted their renderings in the gallery. It's really nice to see the model being used!



V1.2 Update : This is an important update as I'm introducing a bit of Landscape in it and it's a part I want to develop for my matte painting courses.

Otherwise, I've refined the human models: the women are more feminine and the men less muscular. They're not "ideal", but I want to be able to have the occasional "broken face", so I'm fine with that. I increased the quality over all..

If you use the "COMICS" add-on, you'll see that the features are more subtle and expressive.

Anyway, I'm making good progress and hope to see some of your renderings from time to time.

Please follow me and download the model !

R1 Update : This version has been improved in all areas (sharpness, shadow, details, textures, composition, etc.). On the whole, you'll get the same images as the Beta version, but with an obvious gain in quality.

I recommend that you upgrade or get this version!

Many thanks.

First of all, I'd like to thank all the model creators on the Civitai community. All credit goes to them.

MOHAWK has been developed with a view to producing cartoonish or realistic 3D character concepts... Successive merges have tried to support this or that need. It's not perfect, but the results are starting to suit me, so I'd like to share it with you and see what you can do with it, and thanks to your criticism, how I can improve it...

MOHAWK is a merge from various excellents models so it can perform too on any subject, not only character design.. Just for reminder.

How do I use it? :

Once loaded, simply describe the character you want in the prompt and use the various styles provided to render Charadesign and other concepts...

The styles are added to your styles.csv file using any text editor. This file is located at the root of your webui folder. Click on refresh and you'll be able to use them...

There are styles for characters ( cartoon, 0.5 Cartoon, realist ), as well as for assets or objects ( e.g. chair, sword,.. ).

There's also a negative style optimized for rendering, a texture enhancer and a skin enhancer (subsurface scattering, pores, etc.).

Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions... You can normally view my prompts in the model gallery to get started.

In fact, you can even use these styles with any other model! It's just that I wanted a package to offer my 3D students a tool that I've mastered in class.

IMPORTANT : If you want to use these presets style properly, i'll suggest to install these wonderfull lora ( optionnal ) :
