Marshall McLuhan became famous in the 60’s for his statement that “The Media is the Message!” I don’t know if I’ll become famous for this statement, but I believe “The Artist is the Art!” I think you have to be an artist/designer/illustrator/art director/creative director/writer/musician/composer/singer/film maker/architect to fully appreciate the truth in that statement. But the […]

More Mathematical Prompts

Everyone seemed to enjoy my post about prompting “A highly detailed airbrush painting, using a parametric equation to create captivating art” so I decided to cover a number of other mathematical terms used as prompts: Infinite Geometric Series Finite Geometric Series Binomial Expansion Taylor Polynomial (When I used “Taylor Series” it thought I wanted pictures […]

Even though I’ve always had in mind to be an art director and illustrator, I’ve also been a bit of a math geek. In high school, one of my majors was math, studying Algebra, Geometry, Advanced Algebra, and Solid Geometry. I also belonged to the Math Club and the Calculus Club after school. In college […]

Golden Ratio & Fractal Geometry Part 4—Architecture

My previous post, “Midjourney V5.2: Fibonacci Sequence & Fractal Geometry Part 3—Architecture” is a partner post with this one. Here are various architecture prompts that include “Golden Ratio” and “Fractal Geometry” in each prompt. Interesting comparison with the previous post.

Fibonacci Sequence & Fractal Geometry Part 3—Architecture

I decided to complete the series I’ve been posting on LinkedIn about Fibonacci Sequence vs Golden Ratio. This series of architectural images were created with both “Fibonacci Sequence” and “Fractal Geometry” in the prompts. I’m also posting, at the same time, Golden Ratio & Fractal Geometry Part 4—Architecture. Be sure and look at that, too!

Golden Ratio vs Fibonacci Sequence Part 2—Plus Fractal Geometry

MJ understands how Fractal Geometry effects images. Though you can’t add a fractal formula as a prompt, the addition of “fractal geometry” to your prompt creates objects that either continue to create detailed patterns. With both “Golden Ratio” and “Fibonacci sequence” when “fractal geometry” is added, you get some very beautiful and intricate spiraling patterns.

Golden Ratio verses Fibonacci Sequence: Part 1

Back in the early days of MJ V4 David Alvarez, on LinikedIn, did a lot of exploration of prompting “Golden Ratio introducing to us all the beauty of that mathematical term. It became prompt words I enjoyed using especially because of the similarity of the curl of a chameleon’s prehensile tail. Ar. June Chow has […]
