MJ V 05.3 - Visions of CHAOS - Stable Diffusion - FireFly !! It is all changing so fast..

The tools have changed so much in the past 5 months. I have spent my spare time really digging into a lot of the latest and greatest. I really and going into Comfy UI more nad will likely put a section up for it. It feels like Nuke or Substance Designer in terms of node based creation. I have also been using MidJourney for look development for a friends film as well as personal work. There has been a point where I am using some of the images not for concept work or photo work but for Ideas for oil painting and graphite drawing. I will post some of those pieces at some point. All of these tool sets really are great for Idea generation and the building up of ideas.

Film Look Dev : Initial Ideas

Using MJ, I created a series of prompts to create some ideas for a western piece I am designing. I took material form the script and worked it into various prompts that I could get a sense of what the Director wanted.

I referenced movies and did a movie breakdown sheet to make sure we are all on the same page. From there I spent some time crafting some work using AI. This gets the mood and vibe moving and you really know where and how they want to shoot the film. I Also built out temporary sets in 3ds Max based on these images to get some ideas on how to shoot this using Virtual production.

This was cool, I actually went nuts on this part, but in the end, I knew what they didn't want and quickly changed course. The cool thing is that the material they rejected I am using on my own personal work.. I love the style.
