PROMPT SELECTION: SPACE JAM STYLE a.k.a. cartoon + reality crossover
We don’t know if you’re old enough to remember Space Jam starring the legendary MJ and the amazing Looney Tunes crew, but if you don’t then you may have seen its sequel quite recently, starring LeBron James. Not only was the movie a very well executed crossover between the cartoon world and the 3D one, since its older brother Who Framed Roger Rabbit had its premiere, but also quite a novelty in the movie industry. It seems, as one of the very best generative AI magicians Artichoke AI (@artichokes_art) pointed out in one of his Twitter threads, quite a challenge to get Midjourney prompted successfully. Whether you are a cartoon fan, a basketball fan, a tech geek or an AI enthusiast this prompt selection is for you.

As Artichoke AI (@artichokes_art) says
…when trying to mix cartoon and cinematic styles in one image with MJ, the % of successful pics is appearing to be very low. You usually get either a photorealistic or cartoon-like style!’
Let’s take a look at what other magicians did.
Like the very best Anonymouse (@TheMouseCrypto) and the kissing scene!

Work in progress, but the further down the road the more interesting the results are. Check out what Qube (@QubeAI) did. We’re getting there.

These are just a few, yet very illustrative examples of the challenging prompt Artichoke AI (@artichokes_art) has stumbled upon. The good old Space Jam or the framed Rabbit motion designers stay ahead of the visual game, at least for now. Make sure to see the whole thread here, it is definitely worth trying out. Good luck!
