Technical notes

  • Using a merged model is critical in creating this style. Anythingv3 creates a nice anime style which blends with the patterns well. Without it, a realistic face will sometimes be generated. I don’t like the unnatural body shape of Anything v3. It is blended with F222 to attain a more natural body.
  • The keyword “Amber Heard” is quite important here. Because of her expansive hair style, the hair blends with the pattern seamlessly. You can experiment with using other actresses and many of them won’t blend as well. Zendaya is another interesting choice you can experiment with. Her curly hair would blend with certain patterns in a distinct way.
  • To keep the hair style but change the face, try blending two faces with keyword blending.
  • Normally F222 model has high risk of generating nudes. But perhaps it is blended with Anything v3 and because of this style, it almost always generate colorful body painting.
  • Normally I would not use Amber Heard alone because she is too recognizable. Blending with Anythingv3 model makes her face more generic.
  • “pop art” is used to make the color pop out more. Without it the generation is less vibrant.
  • “primary color” can be added to any pattern to make the color pop out more.
