A.I. Art for March 2023
I continue to dabble in A.I. art and enjoy the challenge. My MidJourney prompting skills are slowly improving, by which I mean that I get better results faster. And I'm learning when to abandon an approach and leave that concept for another day. To be honest, the results from the other services have recently been so disappointing that I've focused on MidJourney instead. This is my A.I. art for March 2023. Click the images below to see the bigger version. Please note that this is an image-heavy post.

My friend's granddaughter is at the “I can color for hours” stage. My friend helps with the coloring, but complained to me about the boring designs that are either too simplistic or too insanely detailed. I'd seen some decent coloring pages done in MidJourney (MJ), so I asked what subjects would be fun to color. See the results below.

MidJourney A.I. Art Wallpaper Images
Another fun project is creating wallpaper images for my computer displays. Yes, I have two monitors, and for the same reason I have multiple pieces of paper on my desk. By the way, none of the A.I. art services makes big enough images for my displays, so I use graphics software to up-size them. These turn out to be harder than you'd think to get decent images because the larger size also magnifies the A.I.'s limitations. For example, I prefer horses with just the one head, and kangaroos not to have deer legs.
Random MidJourney Art
Sometimes MJ brings unexpected bounty, usually when I'm looking for something else. Amusingly, MJ still can't spell at all. These are some of the A.I. art images I like, even if I don't (yet) know what to do with them. These are all cats because that's how I like to roll. 😸

You got great results! I dabbled, and got mixed results…and realized I could lose days to playing with MJ!
I really like the Caracal robot stained glass image. I could see an entire religion built behind that image, the Caracal a god.
Thanks for sharing your adventures!
Thanks for the kind words.
That caracal was a happy surprise. Good thing I write paranormal romances — I have the perfect inspiration for a caracal shifter in a future story. 😉
The first couple of months with MJ, I spend hours and hours looking at prompts by others, then trying variations on my own. I had a fair amount of WTF images in the beginning. Now that I feel slightly more confident speaking MJ’s language, I get results quicker, so it’s less of a time-killer.
I love the coloring pages! A lot can be done with those. 🙂
They’re fun! Which reminds me that I need to try some with Version 5. So far, V 5 seems much more literal-minded, but we’re still in the very early days of the alpha release.
