The Beta release of the ESPionage RPG is almost ready. I don’t want to distribute it as a plain Word document, nor am I prepared to commission art, considering it doesn’t have a proper layout. But, having seen some of the fantastic pieces Midjourney turned out, I figured I’d see if could grind out some placeholder art.
You feed Midjourney a prompt, and it makes an image it feels matches.
As I suspected, the products were good, but the communication left something to be desired. Midjourney is good at producing quality art, but not the art I asked for.
My first prompt: “psychics and spies red and black in saul bass style” (Saul Bass being the artist whose style I’m biting). I didn’t ask for gray aliens, but there it is.
It’s good at creating its own abstracts, but the range of abstraction is limitless. Try and point it to a target, and it rarely hits. Don’t ask me why, but I asked for “man in a dark suit with a baby for a head, photorealistic.”
