Wombo AI - painting with artificial intelligence (my pick of the KW04)

Wombo AI app

Last week I accidentally discovered an app that made me delve a little more into the subject of art and artificial intelligence. My first contact with it was the app “Dream by Wombo AI“ – a nice find that gave me a great – and above all free – introduction to generative art.

Here the specification was "picture of a stairway between heaven and hell" - an interesting result, which is more reminiscent of "hell" than "heaven".

How to paint with Wombo AI app?

To use the Wombo Dream App, you can either visit the website or the dream app (iPhone, iPad or Android). All variants are free to use. I have them for the screenshots Wombo app on the website used because you can see more details here.

On the website you will find an area in which you can enter a text. Here you have to tell the AI ​​in English what to design.

Underneath, select the appropriate style and click on “Create”. Within a few seconds you have a small work of art that the app has created using the text input and the style specification.

If you are happy with the picture, you can save it, share it or even order a print on canvas. If you are unhappy with the result, you can start a new attempt with "Generate Again".

If you want to know what is technically happening behind the scenes, I recommend my article "How does the Wombo Dream app work?".

Trying out different text specifications is worthwhile

If there's one thing I've learned from creating such AI-generated artworks over the last few days, it's mainly that the text input can deliver completely different results even with small changes.

So it's a good idea to experiment with similar inputs or additions to see what they do. For example, you can incorporate the style of certain artists or consider materials and the like.

Here are a few additives that I've had good results with:

  • trending on ArtStation
  • Unreal Engine
  • in 3D
  • IMAX
  • pixelart
  • vibrant
  • made of clay
  • painted with a pencil
  • by Zhou Wenjing
  • by Hua Yan
  • by Stephen Pace
  • by Rudolf Koller
  • by Herb Aach
  • by Elfriede Lohse-Wächtler
  • by Francesco Furini
  • by Ron Walotsky
  • dark color scheme
  • by Thomas Kinkade
  • Combinations are also possible: James Gurney, Greg Rutkowski, Unreal Engine, artstation

For example, I use such "prompts": "Stairway between heaven and hell by Zhoi Wenjing | painted with black pencil | trending on art station”.

Here are a few examples of works that the Wombi AI has produced with my text inputs.

Limits of Wombo AI Dream

I took my first little pictures with the Wombo app and was really excited about what artificial intelligence can create. However, as I continued my search, I quickly came across tools that offer far more freedom than the Dream App can.

Here are some points that limit Dream von Wombo:

  • you cannot change or increase the resolution
  • there is no way to change the aspect ratio
  • the number of interactions (more iterations = more details) are not adjustable

But you have to give the Wombo app credit for being very fast. You really only have to wait a few seconds to see a result. So you can use the app for quick tests and then continue using the text input in a slower but more flexible tool.

As a foretaste, here is an image that I created with another program. I won't name the name now because it will be one of the next picks. So: Stay tuned and stay tuned!

I don't want to get too promising right now, but there are some very interesting tools I want to share with you over the coming weeks. This allows you to achieve truly breathtaking results – even in high resolution and in any aspect ratio.
