Don't worry about your NovelAI prompt; I've summed up all you need.

Step 1: Get Your Initial Idea!

Don't have anything on your mind yet? Let's use our idea bank from this blog post to brainstorm your image or character design! You can also use ChatGPT to come up with your AI prompt as well. Or read below for more ideas!

  • Genre & Theme Identification: Decide on the genre or theme of the anime girl you wish to create. Is it fantasy, slice-of-life, mecha, or something entirely unique? Your choice will significantly influence the prompts you create.
  • Keyword List: Gather keywords or phrases that define your character's style. Think of attributes like “mysterious,” “adventurous,” or specific elements like “high school girl” or “girl in mecha pilot suit.”
  • Scenario Building: Use your keywords to build scenarios or situations where the character would shine. For example, “anime girl, standing in front of the buildings in sunset” or “mecha pilot girl gazing at the sky, light smile, looking away.”
  • Incorporate Emotional Layers: Add emotional context to make your prompts more compelling. What is the character feeling? How does their emotional state affect their posture or expression?
  • AI Prompt Vault: Dive into our AI Prompt Vault to find inspiration. You could even purchase access to it for a well-curated list that can guide you in crafting your prompts. It's a goldmine!

NovelAI is involved in so many controversies because they use unconsented artwork to train their AI model. I do not recommend using NovelAI to create commissioned artwork. It is, however, legal to utilize the produced images for drawing reference. Please use the AI cautiously and at your own risk. I'm NOT responsible for any legal issues you may have because the topic of AI-generated images and copyright is complex and varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

We can also create these characters into badges, anime badges are very popular among anime fans. Customized badges can be pinned on clothes, bags, hats, etc. It's a great decoration. Just upload your anime character on to customize it.

If you have any issues with the copyright or wish to opt out of the NovelAI database, please contact them directly.
