Midjourney

A few days ago, on the same day I published my previous blog, something incredible happened: someone offered to buy one of my AI-generated artworks created using Midjourney.

It completely caught me off guard.

That particular day, I spent several hours diving deeper into Midjourney, fueled by both curiosity and pure fascination for the platform. I wanted to become better at it, so I studied about prompt parameters, different styles, and everything in between. I was playing around a lot!

Then, I decided to try something.

Since the pandemic began, I’ve amassed a collection of artworks and images that I really loved, particularly those that evoke specific emotions. If you’re familiar with Madeon’s visuals or Dan Franco’s photography, you’ll understand what I mean.

Some of these pieces inspired me so deeply that I wanted to become an artist myself. They were the kind of art that made you say, “I wish I had created that.”

And now, thanks to AI tools like Midjourney, creating art feels more easier than ever. This is the era of limitless artistic expression, where anyone can create art. Unlike the past, where it took hours or multiple apps to create art, today it can be done in seconds.
