How did they make this AI book?

For example:

How do you get the same characters in different angles? Is it possible for you to tell Midjourny to save a created character?

1) "Unique name" - you come up with some unique character name + tagline, you generate at least 4-5 images with the same look, upscale them and rank with :LOVE: emoji.

After that MJ for some reason generates the same character, but don't forget to use 'unique character name + tagline' in every prompt and in the same order.

2) You mix some celebrities' facial parts - just 'mix of Emma Watson, Salma Hayek', etc, or 'eyes of Keanu Reaves, cheekbones of Brat Pitt', and just re-roll until you get the same character.

3) "Puppet master" - difficult to explain, just search it and you find the whole algo.

How to keep the same character

It's a trick with different ways to solve it.

First, I chose the theme of the children's book for a reason. The tolerate level of character is higher in this type (compared to graphic novels or other storytelling formats)

Second, using the seed for variation images as an 'anchor'.

Third, iteration is the key!

How to keep the same style

Just add the style description in the prompts!

How to design the layout

I used Figma for the layout design, just because it's the tool I use on my day job every day.

You can use Illustrator, InDesign, or Photoshop for this, or other graphic design tools you are familiar with.

How did they make this AI book?

  • He created the book with ChatGPT and Midjourney.
  • ChatGPT provided a Dr. Seuss-style story about "Sam I am" which was altered to a tale about a dog named Max and a turtle, following a request for protagonist change.
  • Midjourney's limitations emerged when it couldn't maintain consistent character styles across multiple images.
  • He attempted to use reference images for character consistency but faced challenges with maintaining the same stylization, size, and proportions between a dog and a turtle in scenes.
  • Consequently, he revised the story to focus solely on a lonely dog due to difficulties integrating both characters consistently.
  • Despite challenges, he completed the book entirely through AI creation within around 4 hours, including learning and experimentation time.
