Retro Space Travel Photos from Midjourney

I tried creating some new Midjourney images using their recently released Test options and loved this retro space travel aesthetic that I found.

To create them I simply used the prompt "a 1970s spaceship, film grain, 1970s, retro futurism, cinematic, science fiction".

Adding in additional bits of information such as "crew", "robot", "cockpit" and more created some really nice pictures. I thought I'd try putting them all together into a video to see what it would be like. You can watch it below.

Since all the images are generated by Artificial Intelligence I figured it would make sense to use music generated by AI and used AIVA, which describes itself as "The Artificial Intelligence composing emotional soundtrack music."

Testing Out Midjourney

Testing out Midjourney

I recently started creating images with Midjourney, a new online tool that allows you to create images created by Artificial Intelligence.

According to their website, Midjourney "is an independent research lab exploring new mediums of thought and expanding the imaginative powers of the human species. We are a small self-funded team focused on design, human infrastructure, and AI. We have 11 full-time staff and an incredible set of advisors."

So far I've been using the Midjourney server on Discord to create images.

In one of the Newcomer Rooms, you can type in /imagine followed by the prompt for your text.

For example let's try something like "a happy kitten sitting on a chair"

The Midjourney bot then starts to create the image.

We then have our finished result, which is four images. We then have the choice to upgra

We then have the option to Upscale any of the images. For example if I click U4 then we will upscale the fourth image that was created.

Once finished we can take a closer look at the upscaled image.

The full resolution version is below.

You can also adjust the aspect ratio of the image produced. For example, the four images below were created with the prompt "desert planet, far future, ancient city --ar 16:9".

"--ar 16:9" indicates that you'd like the image to be in the aspect ratio of 16:9, the most common widescreen format.

Examples of Images created by Midjourney

Below are some of my favourite images I've created so far using Midjourney. It is amazing at imitating fantasy and science fiction art so I've leaned towards those types of prompts.

Multiple DALL-E 2 images created from the same prompt

For those that haven't tried out DALL-E 2, it's a new Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language.

You can take a look at some previous posts on the topic

In those previous blog posts I tended to only show what I considered the best result from each of the prompts. What I wanted to show in this post is just how many unique images DALL-E 2 is able to conjure up from a single descriptive prompt.

In this case the prompt I used was:

A Soviet Propaganda poster of a Robot in Love

Below are the results of this same, exact prompt used again and again to generate new images in a few seconds. Each time you type in the descriptive text and click 'generate' four unique images are created. Each one beautiful and unique in its own way.

More Examples of AI-Generated DALL-E 2 Images

I wanted to share some more images I created using DALL-E 2. DALLE-2 is a new Artificial intelligence (AI) system that can create realistic images and art from a description in natural language. I tested out DALL-E 2 in a previous post, and since that time it has become available in Beta.

The following images were created in a few seconds using only text prompts.
