SELFIES IN NIGHTCAFE

Recently I trained AI with Selfies in Nightcafe, this is a new feature: How to Train AI Image Models Step By Step and next step Fine Tuning - I wanted to test this and, vanity took over, since I tried to make selfies before, I trained my first (and until now only) model with 37 selfie photos. The first few I tested I done with the preset modes, but soon discovered I could use also my weirdest prompts in combination, just add the model first in SDXL 1.0, then add your own prompt and select your format.
Now that I know how this works, I will train AI next with my drawings, so it learns my style. I have two more free models I can train, after that it costs 100 points to train additional models. I will have to see how this works with drawings first. The Selfies did work out OK for the most part (there was one fail, which I deleted).

So lets get this going with the very last one I created yesterday

This after I had figured out how to combine the model with my own prompt.

The promt used was this:

<lora:SELFIES:1.0>acrylic pour art - The Inner Life of the Artist Otto Rapp - his Alternate Reality in Bogomil's Universe; macrocosmic reflection, intricately detailed; Hieronimus Bosch, imperial colors, fantasy, International Gothic, oil painting, mysterious, cryptid taxidermy

I also added a seed image of a 'Acrylic Pour Art' creation from earlier. But in my haste, I forgot to activate the negative prompt, thus my hands look a bit weird, only three fingers! Considering that the prompt contained 'cryptid taxidermy', what goes on all around also affected my hands, I guess.

To give you an idea how weird the basic prompt without the selfie model could turn out,
here are two examples of it:

But lets get back to the selfies, in random order

GUITAR HERO
this one turned out better than expected, combined with a surreal prompt

CYBORG BARTENDER
there was cyborg bartender in the prompt, but this looks more like a happy Hippie

TWINS IN SPIRIT
I actually wanted to be spiritual twins with this beauty at the bar, but AI created a ghostly twin of myself

STEAMPUNK GUITAR HERO
back again playing guitar in a steampunk outer space sort of style, get the shades!

SUNBURN ME IN ACRYLIC POUR
AI did it to me with too much sun exposure

NATURE BOY AT THE WATERFALL
reminds me of my time at the Multnomah Falls in Oregon near the Columbia River

THE SERIOUS EXECUTIVE IN A SURREAL WORLD
a bunch of surrealists from my prompt are going nuts behind me!

GROUNDED ANGEL LOST HIS WINGS
not what I expected, nor the sad looking lady behind me

READY FOR BATTLE
one of the first tries, with a preset mode for knight

csycHqCJ3WsrBhBg5N5V--1--5a5vr.jpg
THE WIZARD OF EARTH-SEA
also a preset mode, one of the first images generated

pp6s5FgfL98M9ynxgP2t--1--bwx6q.jpg
SUPERHERO IN RELAXATION MODE
also a preset mode - not quite sure what AI was thinking here

oQypAKzdCIkKSQnj0Rbd--1--5fnk2.jpg
WOODSTOCK MEMORIES
this was the very first one I tried - a preset mode

WPFPIUM4ZAvUcXN20RoU--1--fnh8n.jpg
CYBORG WARRIOR
lots of gadgets, but I am afraid the fufram valve was connected backwards!

QL2GNFUfahaIHGU8BF9M--1--4mx8b.jpg
JUST PRETENDING
lots of blings, the ruler of Bogomil's Universe! - the prompt was about Egyptian Kings


STRAGGLERS
late night still playing, mixing it up like crazy

Oh no, not another Selfie!
SNATCHING DEFEAT FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY
AI creation with the selfie mode on Nightcafe
for this, I used a seed image from Deep Dream Text2Dream which I had doctored up (cloned) in Photoshop and recreated. That took a number of steps in post-production before being used in Nightcafe.
This is my 'tongue-in-cheek' comment on current world affairs.

Haha, that's really fun and works so well :)

Viktor, in the meantime, I had even been talking to myself!

A handsome older gentleman, aged with the white patina of his beard and hair. I like your self-reliance.
Nice pictures
