Exploring NijiJourney’s Diverse Artistic Styles
One of NijiJourney’s most unique features is its range of built-in art styles. You can add a style parameter like “style cute” to your prompt or change the default style in your account settings.
Here are the five styles and their characteristics:
- Cute (style cute): Vibrant colors, adorable dolls, whimsical patterns, random cats
- Scenic (style scenic): Spotlights scenery, landscapes, and environments
- Expressive (style expressive): Exaggerated features and Westernized style
- Original (style original): NijiJourney’s default anime aesthetic
- Default style with no special parameters: A balanced blend of all styles
Let’s see some examples of different styles with the prompt “Scientist inventing a robot“:
The styles allow for tons of creativity and variety.
Prompting in Niji Journey
Prompting in Niji is the same as Midjourney. I always suggest you at least use the two S’s Subject and setting, in your prompts. For example:
“strong cybernetic superhero wearing a futuristic costume standing on top of a skyscraper, cityscape setting niji 5“
This prompt sets the scene and describes the subject, and we are going to let Niji use its default Anime style here.
Niji is particularly good with movement
“ballerina assassin in dynamic action poses fighting a villain in an ice forest, light sparkles on ice crystals niji 5 ar 3:2″
Niji has all the capabilities of Midjourney for images. Including
- ar to adjust aspect ratio
- pan to move side to side or up and down
- zoom to zoom in and out
And all the rest.
Combining Niji with Western and European art styles like Art Deco, Rococo, Cyberpunk, and Steampunk can lead to incredibly unique results. The anime style also lends itself perfectly to comics, manga, concept art, and animations.
