Imagine loving art, but not being able to make it. Imagine having tools at your disposal that can make art for you, but you lack the skill to give them the right instructions. Well, it sucks to be in that situation. 

I can tell because I have been there. You can stop smirking now, no judgements okay, we all have our difficult times- just like Victoria Beckham did because her parents were from a ‘working class’ and her dad owned a Rolls Royce in the 80s .

It’s equivalent to saying I could not achieve my desired art even though I had AI tools available for free! 

Anyway, jokes apart, even after everything at my disposal, I struggled to get good designs with the help of AI. It honestly resulted in a lot of disappointment but then I found out that it takes a certain set of skill and knowledge to be able to give the right prompts to AI. 

Furthermore, I found out that prompt engineering is a real job and people are making up to USD 300k as salaries through that. But I am going to teach you that for free because hey I am just nice in general!

Thank me later! 

So, I am going to take you through the entire process of writing AI art prompts, and how to get your desired image within seconds. Do not forget the key to getting stunning images from AI is giving it the right instructions and you can do that only when you are clear with the basics. 

That is what we are going to start with! 

AI art prompts basics: What – Why – How 

AI art prompts are the detailed instructions that you give to the AI art generator to get your desired image. You instruct the AI tools as if you are instructing an artist only and thus, you need to be clear, precise, and most importantly be innovative! 

How do prompts for AI art generators work? 

First things first, you need to remember that AI art generators are robots, not humans. It does seem obvious but we often tend to forget. For instance, if you tell a human to draw an elephant, they already have a trunk, tusks, the color as well. While an AI won’t know what an elephant might look like until you have described it in detail. 

Will, this is a vague example, since now AI is highly trained so it already might know what an elephant looks like. The whole point of it is that AI art generators work on precision. You cannot ask them to draw a face with a “beautiful nose.”  Think this through, how would I know what a beautiful nose looks like?

In short, AI art generators work on the basis of datasets they have been trained on and of course your prompting. The more detailed and clear you are in giving instructions the better your results would be. 

Let’s look into a few AI art prompts and the results they gave to get an understanding of how to write prompts to get results.

4 tips for AI art prompts to try to get effective results

Now that we have seen a few examples, let’s get into the details of how to give prompts for AI art generators. These tips are not any hard and fast rules for you to follow, you can play around as well.

Describe what kind of image you are looking for & the subject you want 

Art is a free flowing thing, and it has multiple variations, types, and categories. You need to be precise about what content you are exactly looking for. 

Here are a few prompts for you to get started with it. 

  • An illustration of …
  • A graphic of …
  • An oil painting of …
  • An anime art of …
  • A photograph of …
  • A pencil drawing of …
  • A sketch of …

Once you have given the clarity to AI regarding the kind of art you want, the next step is to tell you about your subject. Your subject can be anything – name, place, animal, thing, or even abstract.  

Just be precise of what you are looking for. For example, I got photographs of Angelina Jolie. They do look hilarious but the prompting worked!

Add as many details as possible 

This is one of the most important steps when it comes to giving prompts to the AI. Why? The more details you add the closer AI will be able to reach your vision. These details could be anything from colors, to the size, to shape, to texture, to emotion, as I said – anything!

Sharing a few prompts with you to start with. 

  • An illustration of a wolf with pink ears …
  • A photograph of a boat on lake with sun shining over it 
  • An oil painting of a study table which is yellow in color 

For instance, I want an illustration of an elephant which is pink in color and has pearl white tusks. Let’s give the prompt and see how that goes. 

Prompt – “Illustration of an elephant which is pink in color and has pearl white tusks.”

I don’t know about you, but it looks pretty good to me and is as the prompt I gave. Let’s try a few more images with some very specific details. 

Here is another image with specific details and we got fantastic results! 

Prompt – “Oil painting of a girl with white hair, peacock princess in the garden.”

Define form, style, and resolution 

You and I both know that art is fluid, thus we need to mention the specifics when we are describing our vision to AI graphic designers. You need to tell them the kind of style you are looking for in your art. 

These days, most of the AI art generators offer you the option to choose the style from so you do not even have to go through the hassle of writing it. 

Similar is the case with the resolution. You need to clearly define your resolution as per your needs. But AI art tools are getting more handy day by day thus they offer an option to select the resolution as well. 

But just in case you do not have the option to select either, here is how you can describe your needs to AI art generators. You can further add your resolution to the prompts, so go and play around with it. 

  • An illustration of a sparrow with yellow feathers flying in a pink sky in the style of abstract painting. 
  • A photograph of a Titanic poster in modern art style. 
  • A photograph of a matte black car with tinted glass and red rims in surreal effect captured from a prime lens.

Here is the result from one of the prompts that we tried out. 

Prompt – “A photograph of a matte black car with tinted glass and red rims in surreal effect captured from a prime lens.”

Explore the features of the tool

Every tool is unique in its own way. The AI tech has been progressing day by day and so are the features being provided by AI art generators. If you want your art piece to stand out then make sure that you explore the tool you are using to the fullest. 

Some tools offer distinctive painting styles to choose from, some offer artist style to choose from, while some others allow you to add negative prompts as well. The awareness about the tool that you are using allows you to use the best of its features to generate your desired image by giving specific art prompts to it.

Bonus tip: Have fun with it! 

Loosen up a little, straighten your back, ease your mind, and now start creating art. Art needs space, you might not be creating it, you are describing your vision so that aso needs some space. 

The best way to get amazing AI art is by getting laid back and having fun with the process. Get creative, give funny, weird, out of the box prompts and enjoy the process. If you feel that giving these prompts is too tedious then don’t worry because I got you covered there as well. 

You can take assistance from the best AI chatbots as well, ask them to give you instructions or an entire prompt to get desired art generated. 

I love generating AI art mostly because the results can be so crazy! Here are a few fun images that I ended up generating while randomly having fun with AI. 

Prompt – “Kangaroo carrying a corgi in cartoon style.”

Dos and Don’ts for AI art generator prompt ideas!

By now I believe you have learnt plenty about How to give art prompts to AI. Even better if you already tried making some art pieces. But there’s more! To get the right image from AI you need to understand a few more things before you start conversing with AI.

Here are a few crucial things to remember while conversing with AI art generators. 

✅ Use easy to understand words 

I have said it before I am going to say it again – AI is not human and it won’t understand your complicated words. For instance, ‘pretty’ might have a meaning for us, but for ai it is a vague term, as how will it implement the description of pretty into an image ? 

❌ Don’t make your prompts lengthy and sour 

Duh! Isn’t it obvious? Keep your prompts short, sweet, and to the point. Try to make it descriptive yet short. You don’t want to overwhelm your AI help with all those complicated words and long sentences. 

✅ Use meaningful adjectives 

The more the merrier, especially when it comes to describing your subject or image to AI. But the catch here is that you need to give meaningful adjectives that AI would understand. For instance, ‘big black colored eyes’ would make the perfect description. 

But, ‘gorgeous eyes’ will not make sense to AI because how will it implement the word gorgeous in the form of an image. 

❌ Don’t settle with just one option 

You are getting hours of work done in minutes, so might as well spend 5 minutes extra to explore the options and select the best one out of it. Use the hit and trial method to see what works and what doesn’t. 

✅ Know the tool you are using in depth 

Every AI art generator is curated very intricately. Each one of them has different features and a lot more to explore than what you just see at surface level. So to get the best designs generated, explore your tool and get to know about them in depth. 

❌ Don’t give contradictory terms to AI to work on 

There is a fine line between being innovative and being foolish. Do not become the latter by giving opposite meaning to AI to create art. For instance, asking it to make a realistic image which is also cartoonist is not something even a robot can get you in one image. 

✅ Give negative prompts 

“Srishti negative prompts, what are those?” 

Negative prompts are the prompts that you give to the ai tools regarding what you do not want in your image. 

For instance if you want an image of a mango tree but without any mangoes on it, then you can tell it to the tool. Most of the AI art generators have the option to give negative prompts, if they do not then you can add yourself. 

Get amazing AI art with easy-peasy AI art prompts

To be better at writing in AI art prompts one of the important things to do is keep experimenting with the templates provided and observing how the digital art changes. It is not only intriguing but also fun. So, do not miss out on it! 

Now, you have all the basic knowledge of writing a structured prompt, how the AI tools work, and how AI art generators work. Keep practicing and being productive by using AI tools to eliminate the hassle of doing tasks manually.
