DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) 🧡

MJ has a certain "je ne sais quoi", the imperfections are more beautiful, a bit like an analog synth. It's often more contextually creative, and amazing w textures / vibe

DALL-E deals better with very clearly instructed scenes

Same prompt:
"a mushroom city in a snow globe sphere, stunning detail, hyperreal rendering"

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"Mozart playing at the Top of the Pops, 1993"
DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"a 1990s device made of bubble gum, plastic and LEDs, many wires crossing each other" (MJ one used in @hyperloreXYZ :) )

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"beautiful lush polaroid of a cute cthulhu monster on vacation"
DALLE () vs Midjourney (R ImageImage
"A piazza full of ancient Roman statues resembling Cthulhu monsters"
DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"astonishing 35mm footage of a volcanic eruption on a salt mine planet, dark and beige atmosphere, 4k"

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"a complex installation made of plastic bags and mirror shards, painted in neon colors, studio lighting"
DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R)

MJ much better at grokking this as an art installation, adding zoom-out context and light ImageImage
"a 1930s medical device, intricate plastic components, connected through glass fibre cables, textured like a 1960s amplifier, catalogue atmosphere and lighting"

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"inside a spaceship hardware equipment machinery room, dark, beige and scary atmosphere, everything overgrown with salt crystals, a giant wormhole to another planet in the middle of it" (used in @SALT_VERSE :) )

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"screenshot from a 90s show with robots as actors"

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R)

again, MJ infering the VHS distortion context by itself without instruction - so great! ImageImage
"An oil painting of infinitely large library with recursive architectural features"

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
"the ancient city of Rome, rebuilt on Mars"

DALL-E (L) vs Midjourney (R) ImageImage
no bandcamp but come join my Midjourney-created interactive 1970s sci-fi film internet adventure @SALT_VERSE - here's the trailer:

MANY more fictional otherwordly Midjourney devices I did in here:
I sadly just have 1 Midjourney invite to give away, so..

write the most fantastic prompt you can think of below 🫳

i'll pick 3 fav prompts & will render them πŸ–ΌοΈ

the most liked image (within 24h) gets the invite πŸ†
if you're into Cthulhu, I did an entire series on it here:

cool applications of my GPT-3-powered* Google Sheet:

let GPT-3 write you any Google Sheet function...
- just tell it wat u want in the sheet! 🫰

no more googling πŸ˜…

Make a copy & use w your API key:


*the script for this was written by GPT-3, too..πŸ™ˆ ImageImage
fun applications of my GPT-3-written Google Sheet that lets you call gpt3(Cell):

a prompt generator for #DeforumDiffusion - input a simple base prompt, the sheet will generate interesting variations

below: "a flower"


(make a copy w/ ur API key)
cool applications of my GPT-3-powered Google Sheet:

Generate lore and stories for RPG characters just from their numerical attributes

PoC, but for this one you just enter Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence values (0-20).

"Narrative APIs" for composable gaming..?

a fun idea in crypto gaming is composability: take your game assets into other worlds

modulo desirability (personally think it'd be fun), how?

hard-coded standards seem unrealistic..

what if both games ran on GPT-3 tho? ImageImageImage
The "prompt maximalist" vision of composable gaming:

take any game worlds, e. g. @chain_runners and @lootproject

if both are governed by a world building prompt, (establishing their lore & physics), you could easily bridge any asset...

"lore inpainting" > narrative APIs Image
so instead of establishing hard rules or standards around how assets & characters between different worlds would interact with one another, you just let a language model figure it out on the fly

build deterministic censoring rules on top of that

A collaborative AI-native "game":

𝐓𝐇𝐄 π“πŽπ–π„π‘ πŽπ… 𝐃𝐀𝐋𝐋-𝐄 πŸ—Ό

comment with a prompt *or* a DALL-E outpaint to add a section πŸ”½

RT with your DALL-E outpaint to branch off πŸ”Ό

prompt in image alt! alter tiny, radical bits...

+add your ENS, if u like πŸ‘€ Tower of Babel section, sumerian architecture, complex illus
here's an example extension I did, building a section on top and one below with DALL-E's new outpainting feature

IT'S TIME TO BUIDL 𝐓𝐇𝐄 π“πŽπ–π„π‘ πŽπ… 𝐃𝐀𝐋𝐋-𝐄 πŸ—Ό
ideally, youd buidl on top of the latest creation, but we can stitch together random sections too I guess..

Midjourney, DALL-E & SD images are incred, but the real 🀯 is when you realize you can make films with them

e.g. @SALT_VERSE, my 100%-AI film experiment

it all started with this MJ image, which instantly pulled me into a 70s sci-fi world - wtf is this place??

I had to go in 🫑
I "played" Midjourney to go a littler deeper into these mines - (many ppl use it like that, like a game!)

and damn, did I find some strange strange down there

a resource curse, of sorts?

I fired up DaVinci Resolve (free video editor) to create a trailer of "what I had seen"...
The experience of being able to "prompt a trailer into existence" on the fly while discovering this world myself was incredibly thrilling, a glimpse of the future

I began to wonder what others might find in this universe & set up Twitter community votes for the first "episode":

Humans of Midjourney '--testp' / GPT-3

I want to study to become a lawyer. But my mom says that’s not a realistic goal. She says: β€˜You have to be realistic. You’re not going to be president, you’re not going to be a lawyer.’ I tell her: β€˜I can be anything' Image

'I moved here by myself when I was eighteen. I didn’t know anyone. I didn’t speak the language. But I was determined to make it work. I worked three jobs. I saved every penny. And now I own my own business.' Image
