Natural Sin Final and last of epiCRealism

Since SDXL is right around the corner, let's say it is the final version for now since I put a lot effort into it and probably cannot do much more.

I tried to refine the understanding of the Prompts, Hands and of course the Realism.
Let's see what you guys can do with it.

Thanks to @drawaline for the in-depth review, so i'd like to give some advices to use this model.
[expand to see Advices]


  • use simple prompts

  • no need to use keywords like "masterpiece, best quality, 8k, intricate, high detail" or "(extremely detailed face), (extremely detailed hands), (extremely detailed hair)" since it doesn't produce appreciable change

  • use simple negatives or small negative embeddings. gives most realistic look (check samples to get an idea of negatives i used)

  • add "asian, chinese" to negative if you're looking for ethnicities other than Asian

  • Light, shadows, and details are excellent without extra keywords

  • If you're looking for a natural effect, avoid "cinematic"

  • avoid using "1girl" since it pushes things to render/anime style

  • to much description of the face will turn out bad mostly

  • for a more fantasy like output use 2M Karras Sampler

  • no extra noise-offset needed, but u can if you like to 😉

How to use?

Prompt: simple explanation of the image (try first without extra keywords)
Negative: "cartoon, painting, illustration, (worst quality, low quality, normal quality:2)"
Steps: >20 (if image has errors or artefacts use higher Steps)
CFG Scale: 5 (higher config scale can lose realism, depends on prompt, sampler and Steps)
Sampler: Any Sampler (SDE, DPM-Sampler will result in more realism)

Hires upscaler: 4x_NMKD-Superscale-SP_178000_G (Denoising: 0.35, Upscale: 2x)

Useful Extensions

!After Detailer | ControlNet | Agent Scheduler | Ultimate SD Upscale

⁉ No VAE needed but it is better to use one for more vibrant colors
