Want to send some support? (Buy a cup at Ko-fi)

I very much appreciate the support!

RealCartoon - Special is, well special. This is a checkpoint that could maybe fit under an existing checkpoint I have (I.E. RealCartoon3D); but is either not fully fitting under one of them or is something that was the result of some fun messing around. Some of these "Variations" in the process of fine tuning the main checkpoints are just very cool but too soon to add as a version update OR are an in-between variation (with great results).

Version 1 happens to be a variation that I just had to share as a THANK YOU.

This will be the location I put those unique models that just do not fit under the main runs or is a variation that is in-between checkpoint versions. This checkpoint will not get an update for itself; but instead will get different "Versions" that come from the mains.

The process is normally the same as the other checkpoints (RealCartoon Series).

Prompt Settings:

(These settings are for A1111 ):

The below image is the top settings I recommend. I do not use a VAE normally as

(vae-ft-mse-840000-ema-pruned) is baked in.

Below are the normal settings I do run when generating most of my images.

Some variation of course happens depending on the desired outcome (I.E. Landscape). I also like to make portrait 512 by 904 as well. I only run batches when I am checking checkpoints or looking for that perfect image. This is normally set to 1

Sampling methods DPM++ SDE Karra and DPM++ 2M Karras do well as well.

Upscaler is either R-ESRGAN 4x+ or 4k-UltraSharp for most of my images.

The Upscale settings will vary depending on your computer.

Would run ADetailer if subject is in the distance as SD1.5 can sometimes fail at faces with distance people. Be careful if you have blurred subjects in backgrounds; as this can start "enhancing them" and thus mess with the overall look.

If you are having problems running A1111 you can change the "webui-user.bat" settings to help (by right clicking and opening in notepad):

  • set COMMANDLINE_ARGS= --xformers

If you do not have xformers or cannot install it, put the following instead:

  • set COMMANDLINE_ARGS= --disable-model-loading-ram-optimization --opt-sdp-no-mem-attention

Prompt Recommendations:

When it comes to prompts that is really up to you. Here is some advice:

  1. Please be careful on the strength you add to LoRas as this can affect the overall look with the checkpoint. Stronger does not always mean better. I normally run 0.4 - 1 strengths depending on the LoRa.

  2. What is first in your prompt has higher priority.

  3. Having parathesis increases a priority, but having everything in them is almost as good as typing without them.

  4. Subtle changes in a prompt (to include punctuation) can change the image

  5. The seed helps in producing similar images with similar software and settings. It does not guarantee the same image as even a difference in software (I.E. ComfyUI) or hardware can affect it.

  6. If you want a more cartoon look (at least with this checkpoint) use the following near the front of the prompt: Anime, Cartoon, painted, or comic. This does not guarantee a look depending on the version; but it will lean more that way. This also works for Realistic looks (Realistic, real, etc).

  7. If you want Safe for work or not nudity to show up then make sure you put the following in your negative prompt: nude, nudity, naked, NSFW, nipples. Of course if you have this in your actual prompt then it will more then likely do it.

  8. The following is what I normally run in a negative prompt (you can click on easynagative or badhandv4 to get the files):

    easynegative,(badhandv4),(bad quality:1.3),(worst quality:1.3),watermark,(blurry),5-funny-looking-fingers

    NOTE: Badhandv4 is an embedding. So goes in the embedding folder of A1111
