The Twelve Days of MidJourney Christmas Styles — vote for the best one

The title refers to the secular and commercial meaning of the Twelve Days of Christmas, which begins on the 14th of December and ends on Christmas day, and not the religious meaning, which begins on Christmas day and counts the time between the supposed birth of the out-of-wedlock/illegitimate child, and when the Magi brought him some gifts.

Even then, the title is just a play on words since I’m not describing gifts but the rendering styles for the MidJourney AI Art Generator. For the current version (V. 4) of the rendering engine, there are 32 styles that one can call out (the list is at the bottom of the post).

The prompt I give to the AI is the same in each case:

(style name) Christmas

So, for the first style, the prompt I gave the AI was: Isometric Anime Christmas.

I then asked for readers to vote for their favorite in each of the styles . . . and these are the results.

When you are done, here’s the poll where you can vote for the overall winner (not an easy task, I assume). As before, in case of a tie, I’ll cast the winning vote.

This poll will close at 11:59pm Central Standard Time (CST, UTC -6) on January 1, 2023.

I’ll post the overall winner (and runner-ups) on January 2nd.

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