AI Photo Wednesday - Smart KitchenPosted on February 7, 2024 • 2 min read • 392 words
Every Wednesday, I post a photo/illustration that has been created by AI, with accompanying text and explanation.
I use Midjourney to create images and photos for my blog and other media. Today the topic is ‘Smart Kitchens’
For an article on how you can make your kitchen smart, I wanted to have a ‘signature’ image that screamed: SMART KITCHEN, but in an old-fashioned way. You could come across it in the cartoon “The Jetsons”.
First I created an image with
a black and white pencil drawing of a futuristic kitchen with various smart appliances
This resulted in a nice picture, but it wasn’t the color and style I wanted.
The final prompt has become this:
a charcoal drawing of a futuristic kitchen with various smart appliances
That resulted in some nice pictures. In the end, I chose the picture on the bottom left.
I usually edit illustrations in Photoshop. The same goes for this one. Before I started, I made a copy of the first layer. Then, on the copy, I performed a number of basic edits. These are ones I basically do on every illustration or photo:
After that, I placed the original layer above the edited one and chose ‘divide’ as the blend mode with an opacity of 16%. On top of that, I applied a trace contour smart filter with level 192. This made it look more like a drawing.
