Is 100% consistency possible? The answer is: No (at present).
However, if you follow the guidelines in this article, you’ll see astonishing improvements.
Step 1: Start Creating Your Main Character
Use a prompt like “hasmik sargsyan, 22-year-old Armenian woman, no makeup, daring but unstable, close-up headshot photograph on neutral portrait background –style raw –seed 2010 –s 0.”
By setting the style to raw, you’ll have better control over your character, rather than letting Midjourney decide for you. The seed parameter will help you maintain better consistency.
Setting ‘s’ to 0 minimizes the random effects from Midjourney.
Choose an image that you like; from now on, this will be your base image.
Step 2: Turn On REMIX MODE
Then, from the base image created in Step 1, click on “VARY STRONG.”
Use a prompt like “angry hasmik sargsyan, 22-year-old Armenian woman, black ponytail, daring but unstable, furious, enraged expression, portrait photograph –style raw –seed 2010 –s 0.”
Here, I’ve added multiple synonyms for “angry” (like furious, enraged) to make Midjourney pay more attention to this change.
You’ll see the anger more clearly.
Choose an image that you like.
Use a prompt like “https://s.mj.run/kV4WEnDgoPw https://s.mj.run/q2oLnCE29tY angry hasmik sargsyan, 22-year-old Armenian woman, black ponytail, daring but unstable, furious, enraged expression, portrait photograph –style raw –iw 0.5 –seed 2010 –s 0.”
- Here, I’ve used the link of the base image from Step 1 and the image from Step 2 in the prompt.
- I’ve set the ‘iw’ parameter to 0.5 to show the anger as much and as clearly as possible.
Then choose an image that you find most satisfying.
Note: You can play around with the ‘iw’ parameter from 0.5 to 0.75 to get the most satisfying result.
Whenever you feel that your character is different from the original, use the base image in your prompt.
