Creating Imaginative Prompts to Use with AI Art
Over the past few months I have been following a few AI Generated Art groups on Facebook. One of the things that has fascinated me has been the creativity of the prompts that people come up with to create objects. I've seen cat inspired modern chairs, handbags with a Van Gogh theme, and owls knitted from yarn. I know there is much discussion about how AI art borrows without permission from artists (which is another valid conversation), but I am so intrigued by the combinations that it puts together using simple words.
A week ago I received access to the beta version of Adobe Firefly. Adobe trains their AI on their own Adobe Stock as well as open licensed and public domain work. Currently it will generate text to image and also will generate text style with a theme from your text. It has a number of presets which you can add to your image to explore different styles. It works fast, so it is easy to generate many versions of your prompt.
I decided to explore "decorating" Easter eggs using a prompt with different materials and mediums. I've been blown away by the creativity and beauty of the results! Downloads have a watermark from Adobe showing that it was generated by Firefly - see above. (The download feature doesn't always work on the iPad, but you can also download individual images to your photos without the watermark.)
Here is a screenshot what the interface looks like. You can see my prompt and some of the preset buttons along the side. Each prompt generates four images. You can keep hitting refresh to generate infinite results.
Here you can see the variety of crocheted eggs that it generated. Some were very wonky and crazy and when you look closely you can see the flaws. But in a few minutes, I could generate dozens of these designs, saving the ones that looked the best!
It is addicting once you get going! This picture above is a screen shot of some of my saved images. This prompt was : "One embroidered Easter egg, blue and white floral thread, floral designs with repeats, white background, detailed.
By simply changing the color palette, you can generate different results. This prompt: "A single Easter egg, decorated decoupage style with cuts from old magazine illustrations of flowers, birds, butterfly, botanicals, muted tones."
How about lace and pearl eggs? I discovered many of my Facebook friends were thinking I was actually making these in real life and were very confused!
I even did wood carved eggs in the style of cuckoo clocks. By adding words like flowers, birds, and swirls along with trying the preset buttons, I could slightly adjust the results until I got a look that I liked.
Call to Action: Truly, there is so much imagination and creativity involved in generating prompts that produce amazing and beautiful results! Do you think a future job will be a "prompt engineer?" Do you have any other ideas of an ordinary object that could be generated using usual materials?
I plan to continue to create and post on social media one Easter egg style each day up until Easter. If you have any great ideas to use to "decorate" my Easter eggs, let me know!
