A New Tune in Comic Book Creation
Have you ever wondered what your favorite song would look like as a comic book page? Well, I decided to find out. I embarked on a creative journey with Midjourney, using the lyrics of some of my favorite songs as inspiration. The results were… interesting, to say the least.
The Black and White Sketches: Getting Away With It
I started with “Getting Away With It” by James. The first verse of the song “Are you aching for the blade?” inspired me to create black and white illustrations using prompt: “dark expressionist painting with young woman character with curly hair and big eyes dressed in black. Black and white painting, strong imagery art, story telling in the srawing stzle of the joint drawing. Ultra minimalist. In the stzle of architect’s sketches. In the Egon Schile style. Drawing with the pencil with a large trace of a red paint. A lot of fine black lines of scribbles“. The results were impressive, especially the second and third illustrations. But, there was a problem – the images came with messy wordings. Why? I have no idea.
The Colorful Expressionism: A Bold Experiment
Next, I prompted Midjourney for an expressionistic style – colorful and bold. The images that came out were of really high quality. Kudos to Midjourney! However, creating images for the other verses proved to be a bit too complicated and Midjourney constantly created very similar scenes. So, I had to drop the idea.
The Final Product: A Comic Book Page
In the end, I simply added the song’s lyrics and asked Midjourney to create a comic book page. The result was quite satisfying.
The Moby Experiment: Extreme Ways
Encouraged by the results, I decided to try another song – “Extreme Ways” by Moby. This time, Midjourney created the comic book page in a random style. It looked good, and it made me think about adding wordings to it next time.
The whole experience has opened up a world of possibilities. I’m considering creating a video using these ideas. Who knows what other creative adventures this journey with Midjourney will lead to?
Creating comic book pages with Midjourney has been a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience. It’s a unique way to visualize music, and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me next.
