If you’re anything like me, you’re always on the lookout for new and interesting AI art generator tools. They are popping up like mushrooms on the internet these days.

Two of my latest favorite tools right now are MidJourney and Stable Diffusion.

Over the past few months, MidJourney text-to-art AI tool has had several significant improvements. The results are now more detailed and portrait’s face features are now more proportional.

While Stable Diffusion has only been around for a few weeks, its results are equally outstanding as MidJourney’s.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the side-by-side comparison of the generated images.

1. Living Room

Personally, I like the left image more. It has a more understated and organic appearance.

Contrarily, the right image still appears fantastic because of its rich hues and color saturation.

2. Warrior Robot Astronaut

I suppose there is a certain winner in this case. The outcome of Stable Diffusion is elegant and mechanically sexy. It resembles a poster for an animated robot movie nearly exactly.

The robot warrior from MidJourney seems a little… off.

3. Last Summer’s Day
