The Twelve Days of MidJourney Christmas Styles — Overall Winner

Style 8 — 2D Illustration Christmas

The votes are in, and of the 32 styles explored using a Christmas prompt, the above image was the winner . . . sor-of.

Only 8 people voted, and since there was a tie, I cast the tie-braking vote. While I liked the Paper Quilling creation, I felt the above better symbolized the theme of Christmas as it’s understood in modern society.

I again present links to the styles below, as well as the poll results showing a tie.

As a reminder, the prompt I give to the AI was the same for each style:

(style name) Christmas

So, for the winning style, the prompt I gave the AI was: 2D Illustration Christmas.

These were the individual winners for each style and, as is the case for the overall winner, I indicated when I cast a tie-braking vote.

Slideshow: winning images for each Style

Here’s the poll — now closed — where readers voted for the overall winner (not an easy task, I assume). Again, because it was a tie, I cast the tie-breaking vote.

Not that anyone is interested in my preferred image, but just in case someone is wondering about it, it was this one (and it wasn’t even a winner):

Mind you, it’s a tough choice when looking at 120+ options, but even so, most of my top picks were in the Iridescent Style. That’s not to say other styles didn’t have amazing graphics.

Despite not being a fan of Avatar, I guess I’m a sucker for iridescence.

My thanks to all who participated. I hope 2023 is starting off in splendid fashion for you and yours.

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