MidJourney Does Paper Quilling

I’d heard of paper quilling, but I didn’t have a good idea of what it was . . . Basically, it’s coiling paper and then creating designs from it. THIS WIKI offers a good intro to the art.

I’m not sure if MidJourney, the AI Art Generator, abides by all the rules, but in looking at images of paper quilling from the Internet, it’s pretty close, or at least I — in my ignorance of the craft — think so.

So, the above was the first pass of one of the renderings . . . and here are the upscaling and remastering . . .

Here is the next set of three; original, upscaled, and remastered.

They quilled the crap out of that one!

By the way, the prompt was “paper quilling of cabin by a mountain lake” or something close to that.

Here’s the next one . . .

And the final one . . .

Paper Quilling is one of the new styles for V. 5 of the AI rendering engine.

I plan to test the styles of V. 4 of the AI engine by using the same prompt for each. I’ll have to come up with a simple prompt that works well for showing the difference in rendering styles. We’ll see how that goes.

And now, for something completely different . . .

To close out this post, a video featuring Marshall Broxson (son of Perry Broxson) doing a version of one of the original songs he and his brother Max perform when playing at a bar in Colorado Springs. For several years now, they play on Friday evenings as a side gig from their regular jobs.

Warning . . . sad song (lyrics below the video if you go to YouTube) . . .

Don’t forget to like the video (if you like it).

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
