You can “frame” your Dream photos if you use a shape on a dark background as your influence photo. I’ve done a few of these over the past few days that I’d like to post.

She is an actress and dancer that I directed in a play a few years ago. She has given me the ability to use her images somewhat freely, since she’s liked everything I’ve done - so far!

So, not my daughter.

New Lace Sleeve

WomboDream, iColorama

Sometimes, the shape in the influencing image is not a frame, but the shape given to an object. I used a brush stamp in iColorama, shown below, and used the prompt of New Lace Sleeve, one of my favorite Elvis Costello songs. I returned it to iColorama to add the hand.

Swamp Decay

WomboDream, iColorama

I used a skull as the base today. WomboDream eliminated most of the definition (eyes, nose, teeth), so I blended the base image back in at low opacity to bring those back. I also blended another Dream swamp image for texture on the plain background.

The brain still works out that it’s a skull. It’s probably more impactful/disturbing than an image of a skull. I love it, particularly those slashes of turquoise.

You are really making Wombo work for you!

The Watching Serpent

WomboDream, iColorama

I used a spiral as the base today and created two Dream images, the serpent and the eye. Blended them in iColorama and added some blurring and toning.

This was done using the Etching style. Silhouette added in iColorama, color and pastel treatment in PastelloPro.

If I hadn't been following along with your experiments, I wouldn't have picked out Wombo as one of the ingredients in this image. Very effective.

This is the last of my framing/negative-space experiments in WomboDream for now. I find it to be a very useful technique for toning down the mechanistic AI warping that Wombo has in spades. My conclusion remains the same: WomboDream is infinitely preferable as an intermediary step, using influence images, than as the final result.

What ted said. These two are even tempting me to have a go at that style.
Great! I’ve found that most people fall into one of two camps: “Look what WomboDream did when I entered these words! What other words can I use?” and “Look at that garbage! How could you possibly think that is art or even yours?” Very few people are working with it as a single tool as part of their toolbox. I like forcing apps to do what I want.

Well, I’d like to see more in the same vein as those last ones, it’s closer to photography ( I was real useless at art and therefore I cannot appreciate it properly). With these though, it’s much Closer to photography angle. If I have the time and patience, I might give it a spin, the trouble is i get too frustrated sometimes but I won’t know unless I try. Well done again though.

Marilyn by Nially

WomboDream, iColorama

As I said to ric above, I like forcing apps to do what I want. WomboDream has a real problem with faces and even head shape, warping them horribly in most cases. Occasionally you’ll get something that’s semi-useful. In this case, Marilyn Monroe in the style of Francoise Nially, it gave me a nice eyebrow, but placed well down the face over a black blob of an “eye”. Using cloning, I moved the brow and covered the eye. I like the remainder.
