Midjourney is one of the many AI Art Generation programs on the market. It is one of the most powerful programs running and is comparable to DALL-E. Generative/AI art is a new and fast emerging area and this is a skillset that should be in every artists arsenal.
This course aims to simplify the process of utilising text prompts along with additional parameters to create stunning pieces of art. This artwork can be deemed final artwork or it can be used in the idea generation and competing phase of bigger projects.
For this course I will be using a paid version of the program, but that is not a necessity! You will not be limited within this course by using the free trial. The free trial only limits you to generate your first 200 images and if you wish to make more you can purchase a licence further down the line.
The only pre-requisite to this course is that you need a discord account and access to the internet. I do also use photoshop in the final lesson but this is not imperative to the course, rather, an additional extra.
Lesson 1 – What is Midjourney (A walkthrough and introduction to the program)
Lesson 2 – Existing work made with Midjourney (This session will take a look at existing work that has been created with Midjourney)
Lesson 3 – Creating pieces of art with Midjourney (In this session we will utilise the prompt command to generate out first artwork)
Lesson 4 – Upscaling, Variations and Dimensions (In this session we will utilise additional commands and prompts to improve and alter our generated art)
Lesson 5 – Prompt Tips (This session will cover some additional tips for generating text prompts)
Project Task (Assignment) – (This lesson will walk you through the final assignment that you have been tasked with, summarising the skills and techniques learnt in this course.)
Additional Content – (This lesson will show you some additional tools you can use in Photoshop to add or remove detail in your artwork)
As mentioned above in the course outline, the course will finish with a really fun assignment where you will have the opportunity to practice the skills that you have learnt in this course! I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys create so please upload your work!
I hope you enjoy this course as much as I enjoyed creating it!
For the Class project, please see a detailed outline in 'Project Task (Assignment)'.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners in the field of AI Art
My name is Jonathon Parker, a Motion Graphics and Visual Effects lecturer from the UK.
Firstly, a little background about me! I have always been the creative type and always strive to improve and push my creative skills further and further.
As stated above I am already teaching in the UK as a Motion Graphics and VFX lecturer – The difference with my courses will be the fact that they come from an educator, not someone doing this just in their spare time! All my courses focus on teaching and assessment. I will teach you a few skills and then set you an assignment to check that those skills have been learnt. I also see the importance of generating handouts and resources for the student, so I have included these in my courses also!
I have a First-Class BA (HONS) in Visual Effects and motion graphics, and also a Masters in Animation. After working a few years in industry, I would occasionally guest lecture at the college I used to attend. After doing this I decided to go into teaching full time where I achieved my teaching qualification.
Now that I am here on Udemy I hope to further spread my extensive knowledge through my teaching practice! Check out the social media links on my profile and get involved!
