Midjourney Graphic Novel Prompts

Students get information and examples of prompts that will produce graphic novel images in Midjourney.


Instructions and examples for creating effective prompts in Midjourney for graphic novel-style characters. Remember if you want a consistent character to appear in the scene, that language needs to appear as well.

Instructions:

1. Be Specific: The more specific your prompt, the better the results. Include details about the character's appearance, personality, and setting.

2. Use Graphic Novel Language: Use language and terms that are common in graphic novels. This can include words like "hero", "villain", "mysterious", "adventure", etc.

3. Include Actions: If possible, include an action in your prompt. This can help to generate a more dynamic image.

4. Experiment: Don't be afraid to experiment with different prompts. Sometimes, a slight change in wording can produce a very different result.

Prompt Examples:

1. Prompt: "A heroic knight standing in a castle courtyard, ready for battle. He has shining armor, a large sword, and a determined look on his face. The style should be reminiscent of Frank Miller's bold and dramatic artwork."

 Explanation: This prompt is specific, includes an action (standing ready for battle), and uses graphic novel language (heroic, knight, battle). The style reference to Frank Miller adds a specific artistic direction.

2. Prompt: "A mysterious sorceress casting a powerful spell in a dark forest. She has long flowing hair, a cloak made of shadows, and her eyes are glowing with magic. The style should be similar to the ethereal and intricate artwork of Yoshitaka Amano."

 Explanation: This prompt includes specific details about the character's appearance and setting, an action (casting a spell), and uses graphic novel language (mysterious, sorceress, spell). The style reference to Yoshitaka Amano adds a specific artistic direction.

3. Prompt: "A cunning thief sneaking through a bustling city market. He's wearing a hood to hide his identity and is carefully avoiding the guards. The style should be similar to the dynamic and detailed artwork of Fiona Staples."

4. Prompt: "A brave explorer navigating through an ancient, trap-filled temple. She's carrying a torch and is carefully stepping over a tripwire. The style should be similar to the adventurous and vibrant artwork of Mike Mignola."

5. Prompt: "A powerful villain sitting on a throne in a dark castle, plotting his next move. He has a sinister smile, a crown made of bones, and his eyes are filled with malice. The style should be similar to the gothic and atmospheric artwork of Tim Burton."
