You can use punctuation and other tools to adjust AI art prompts. If the AI struggles to understand how your words should be grouped, try adding quotes around the words that go together. For example, “little girl adventurer in dirty, ragged clothes” standing on top of a “snow-covered mountain peak” next to a “pink woolly mammoth” might work better than without any quotes.
Other refinements include noting elements you’d like to avoid, specifying the strength of your style and giving guidance to the AI in terms of how closely you want it to attend to your prompt. For example, if you want to save blue tones for a different character, just type [avoid = blue] at the end of your prompt.
The AI can do subtlety as well. If you just want a hint of steampunk, you can adjust the style strength. Type [ stylise = 20, 80] or another two numbers that add up to 100. Guidance, which is how much freedom you give the AI to play, can be a number between 0 and 25, such as [guidance = 5]. Lower numbers mean the AI has more room to ignore the prompt.
