Hero Image

For a while now I have been manually creating images for the articles to add something to the content, but my heart is out of it and I think it shows. Plus, if I am trying to get something important across, it simply looks tacky and dated. When I first come up with the idea I was severely resource bound, the laptop I used was literally 192MB of RAM and somewhere there was an OS squeezed into that.

It’s about time I did something to snazz up this website a little. After playing around with Stable Diffusion and coming to the conclusion that I could just about generate some nice images on a GTX 960 with 2GB VRAM, I thought: screw it.

For the model, I am using koreanstyle25D_koreanstyle25DBaked.safetensors. The purpose for using this is that I tested maybe some 10 different models and this one came out best.

I also tried to use Lora to enhance the output, but have had poor luck so far. I asked myself “how could you bolt on any old Lora model and improve the result?” - and the answer seems to be that you can’t.

For the hero image on this website I used:

1girl, future, science, landscape, sexy, lewd, naked, nude

After all, sex sells. Out of the images generated, I’ve gone for the more tasteful image pointing away. Maybe I will change it up as time goes on, but it adds character to the article.

For future people complaining: Get over yourselves. This is art.

I stole a negative prompt from Reddit (source lost):

lowres, text, error, cropped, worst quality, low quality, jpeg artifacts, ugly, duplicate, morbid, mutilated, out of frame, extra fingers, mutated hands, poorly drawn hands, poorly drawn face, mutation, deformed, blurry, dehydrated, bad anatomy, bad proportions, extra limbs, cloned face, disfigured, gross proportions, malformed limbs, missing arms, missing legs, extra arms, extra legs, fused fingers, too many fingers, long neck, username, watermark, signature

To add a hero image, I simply add the following to the top of the markdown:

0001 ![](hero-image/hero.png){#hero .hero}

I think for now the result is great and I will keep pushing the limits to utilize computer generated art to bring some colour to my articles. If you look closely, the scene itself does not quite make sense, but it still looks amazing. Some themes I am interested in:
