How do I create the perfect prompt to generate AI art with DreamUp?

Use these tips to perfect your prompt:

  • Start with the subject: Begin your prompt with the subject of the image you want to generate. If you want a llama, for example, then start your prompt with the word "llama"!

  • Start simple: Start with a simple prompt and add more detail based on what you imagined. For example, you can start with the prompt, “princess inside a castle,” and if the clothing or castle isn’t the style you’re looking for, you can change your prompt to something like "princess wearing a ballgown in a castle" or "princess in a gothic castle" to refine your results.

  • Choose a genre: You should always specify the genre or style of art you want to get. (If you don’t, DreamUp will choose one for you!) The genre can be more broad (e.g. “drawing” or “photo”) or more specific (e.g. “children’s crayon drawing” or “polaroid photo”), depending on what end result you desire.

  • Experiment with moods: Adding a keyword that invokes a mood can change the overall appearance of your finished image. Example keywords to try: cute, sinister, creepy, dreamy.

  • Choose a background: Specifying a background is an important part of getting the most out of your prompt! Example phrases to try: Solid white background, ocean sunset background, country hillside background.

  • Re-run the prompt: If you like the results of a prompt and want to see more takes, you can run the same prompt again to generate different results.

  • Create variations: If the results of a prompt are nearly there, but you want to make small changes to fine-tune your idea, click the "Create Variation" option! It will use the previously generated image as the seed for the new image generation.

  • Get inspired: If you’re not sure what sort of images you want to generate, browse DeviantArt and see what prompts other deviants are using to generate images! You may be inspired to create based on what you find!

How do I give credit to an artist if I referenced them in my prompt?

If an artist is referencing another artist, they need to tag that artist when submitting the resulting image to DeviantArt.

A field will appear as part of the submitting process where the artist needs to add the username of the artist being referenced in the prompt.

The artist’s credit will appear on the deviation page.

Failure to do so is a violation of our DreamUp Policy and can result in your deviation’s deletion or an account suspension.


How can I opt-out of allowing users to use my style in prompts?

If you don’t want to allow other deviants to create art inspired by your style with DreamUp, carefully read and fill out this form.

If you’ve opted out and would like to opt in again, please contact DeviantArt Support.
