•LusterMix• offers two distinct versions, each catering to different artistic styles. SemiRealism embraces a semi-realistic anime aesthetic, Pastel leans towards a more traditional anime-like style. V1.5 is similar to SemiRealism, maybe even more realistic and usually generates smaller and pointier noses. Using Inpainting and ControlNet further enhances detail, especially on the face.

I use Counterfeit-V2.5 VAE, which apparently is identical to other VAEs so just choose what you prefer.
Since i heavily use Inpainting and sometimes ControlNet don't expect to be able to reproduce what i post 1:1, also seed generation varies from GPU to GPU (and CPU depending on the settings used). Steps also matters if you're using ancestral samplers like Euler a or DPM2 a etc.
