(READ VERSION NOTES. Note for Invokeai users, as of the last UI update the full version of this model, for me at least, no longer works. Use the pruned version instead.)
If you appreciate what I’m doing feel free to https://www.buymeacoffee.com/Uzia or share some of your generations! I love to see them.
(On that note though, imagery depicting sexual violence/abuse will be reported immediately.)
The third of the trinity; Opiate brings "photorealism" to the table. Again focused on the beautiful and the horrific, but due to its realism the more gruesome aspects can really punch you in the face.
Preview images are cherry picked from batches of three. Zero embeddings and with Hires. fix: upscale 2. Steps 20. Denoising 0.5. Latent.
Clipskip 1 until 4 give interesting results; for characters it becomes more unstable the higher you go, for monsters it seems to get better. After 5 things get shaky but when it hits it does so in a more artistic manner.
To achieve the same style as me, be sure to end your prompt with: "cinematic film still of..." and then, well, go wild. I tend not to write much on prompting as I feel it stifles creativity (see review by mik_krya below), if there is demand for it however I will make the time to do a deeper dive with each of the models. Personally though I would rather get moving on the next versions of the trinity,
(A quick word on negative prompts: if you are aiming at horror many of the things you would normally prompt against are the very things you want to have eg: deformed, mutated, ugly etc. Just be aware if you're making your own beasties maybe just start with quality related negatives, and build it up from there. Also one thing I noticed when making the demon chick is if you prompt against :- male, man, masculine - too harshly it drastically effects the output in a negative way. I'd guess there are many more images out there of male demons, but as you watch it generate the body type will change to the feminine. So... with horror stuff, be cautious with the negatives.)
Anyway I really hope you enjoy exploring Opiate's murky depths.
