Welcome to this comprehensive guide on Leonardo.AI, where you’ll learn how to create stunning AI art in just a few minutes. This tutorial will walk you through the most advanced prompts and explore Leonardo’s pre-trained models that specialize in certain art styles. By the end of this guide, you’ll be able to create consistent-looking characters, blend images, and extend an existing image to create a full scene.
Getting Started with Leonardo.AI
Leonardo.AI is currently in Early Access, but you can easily gain access by signing up and introducing yourself on their Discord. When you visit the homepage of Leonardo.AI, you’ll see some custom models at the top and amazing art creations by the community below. Keep in mind, some of the artwork may not be safe for work.
Creating AI Art with Custom Models
If you visit the custom models, you can see AI art images created by these models. By clicking the “Generate with this model” button, you can start creating your own AI art.
For example, let’s create a portrait of a character with tattoos and a slithering-inspired t-shirt. We’ll also apply some negative prompts because we don’t want our character to have weird or strange hands. You can try the same prompt with different models and see the outcome.
Using AI Canvas
AI Canvas is a powerful tool that allows you to create a full picture piece by piece. You can extract an image with AI by placing half of the context box on the image and the second half on empty space. This method allows you to create amazing game environments very quickly.
For instance, let’s blend two isometric images created using Mid Journey and edit them next to each other. We can quickly remove parts using the erase tool and place our context box in between. By entering our prompt and hitting generate, we can create a seamless blend of the two images.
Training Your Own Model
With Leonardo.AI, you can create your own model and prompt with it. Click on “Training and Dataset” and upload your images so AI can train on them. For example, let’s train the model with some images of a dog named Lonnie. Once the model is trained, we can visit the AI image generation tool, choose our custom model, and write a prompt. The results will be based on images similar to those we used for training.
