I also put it against stable Diffusion and Dolly too to see how the Anime rendered I kept my prompt very Simple I wanted an anime cat let’s start With Nigi Journey vs mid-journey version 3 which at the time of this video is the Default version there is a distinct Difference in style and subject Nikki Journey will make cats but usually it Will make a cat character meet your Neighborhood 4 is much more Knowledgeable in terms of styles but it Sends back anime images similar to Version 3. though the cats are much more Realistic with the classic big eyes doll E2 gets the anime style pretty well but The nihi journey characters are much

More filled in Dolly characters are much More sketch-like and when it comes to Stable diffusion you’re going to need a Lot more prompting help to get a good Anime image I tested Niki journey by Prompting in Japanese Korean Chinese and English to see if there were any Difference in the images that were Rendered there didn’t seem to be any Difference based on language but I also Prompted in Thai Vietnamese and other Unsupported Asian languages the bot Didn’t recognize the cat prompt but I Did get a good look at the default Styling of Niki journey I have a couple Of invites to Nigi Journey’s private Beta testing to give away if you are a Subscriber to this Channel and have a Discord handle send me an email with Your Discord name and number to Wit’s End photography this offer is Only available to a couple of creators And only while Niki journey is still in Beta testing hands down Nikki journey is The best text to image anime art Generator if you love anime art you’re Going to love Nikki Journey if this Video Just as this video was about to go live Niji Journey got its first major update I’ll take a deep dive into this version In a separate video but let’s take a Quick look at the changes Foreign
