I’ve been converted as of v5. I always hated the style before, I felt like every time you looked at v4 and lower, it always had that “Midjourney” look which didn’t look bad, I just didn’t like it. Now with v5 that’s gone and I freakin’ love it!
Two recent pieces:
- Hippy Putin (Imgur backup)
- Ted Cruz, Communist Hunter (Imgur)
- Trump, One of the Best At Catching Footballs (Imgur)
- Anderson Cooper is Jack Ryan
Compared to Adobe Firely, MJ v5 makes it look like the mediocre offering that it is. I have a hard time after this experience thinking it would be fun to go back to Dall-E or Stable Diffusion either, but I suppose the new thing eventually loses its sparkle too… More on MJ later.
