@william_kent is there aplateau point or if I leave this running for another hour will I come back to a masterpeice?

there's a high miss to hit ratio - I've found that if you leave it to do its thing for about 10 minutes then you can tell if it will be any good or not - if it looks like it is shaping up, leave it running, otherwise sack it and tweak your phrasing - there's a few tricks you can employ with the text prompt - using the pipe symbol ( | ) you can do stuff like:

saturn devours his son | in the style of francis bacon | artstation

or

saturn devours his son | in the style of francis bacon | trending on artstation | rendered in unreal engine

which will deliver you better quality images

frankly, my first attempts looked like teratomas, just awful

and yes, there can be a plateau where if you leave it running too long it will "overfit" as they say, and basically ruin what it was doing - I've been playing with neural networks for a few years now ( image and text generation ) and the trick is to pick the sweet spot

I found with text and image generation that after so many iterations it may end up plagiarising the material that the neural network has been trained on - a few years ago I trained a neural network on purely boomkat reviews and after a certain point I recognised the text that it was generating..

another trick is to also put the url of an image in the image_prompts parameter - the nn will try and copy the style of the image

another trick is to mix up the "in the style of" prompts - here's a couple based on @WashYourHands choice of prompt

All around the great oaks sang them to sleep and dreams | in the style of Austin Osman Spare | in the style of Aubrey Beardsley

Ah see I was just putting 'saturn devours his son' and then uploaded a francis bacon painting for reference. Did not know you were putting 'in the style of' in the text prompt

the units- the slurs and squiggles and wetness - he paints with look to be the same the AI uses to generate images. You can see it in early renders or in the negative space of renders where the AI isnt sure what to do.
