Technical notes

  • The base prompt was generated by CLIP interrogator 2, using a similar image found on the web. The prompt was intended to be used on Stable Diffusion 2.0 but it seems to work better in 1.5.
  • “Cinematic lighting” was added to improve the contrast.
  • Curve and level adjusted with GIMP.
