Styles Favored by Midlibrary Collectors

There are two fundamental changes in how we approach Style Tops that this edition signifies. First, we're shifting from a benchmark-style approach—where the same prompts were used for all styles—to using unique prompts crafted specifically for each style. This change allows for a more nuanced and interesting exploration of how each style behaves.

Secondly, after investing hundreds of hours and generating thousands of "by-product" images to curate the best selections for our Tops, I developed a sense of how particular parameters work with various style modifiers. Specifically, the two parameters—--stylize and --chaos—are key in my prompting strategy. Going forward, we'll include these parameters in the prompts to give you an idea of which combinations work best with specific styles and particular wording.

Of course, this is subjective, and I encourage you to explore other prompt strategies and parameter combinations to gain your own insights. Consider Midlibrary Style Tops as your starting point!

In July, we launched our first personalized Midjourney tool—Personal Libraries. Accessible exclusively to members of our Patreon community, a Personal Library allows them to create an unlimited number of Style Collections and save styles from the Midlibrary catalog into thematic compilations. These collections can then be bookmarked for quick access to their favorite styles or even saved as PDFs for printing. In just under two months, our patrons have created almost 600 such collections! We see this as a valuable opportunity to identify which styles are most popular among Midjourney enthusiasts.

Today, we are excited to present the Top 15 Most Collected Styles—and what you can do with them!

Aaron Horkey, Alessandro Gottardo, Rafael Albuquerque, Ivan Bilibin, Enki Bilal, Claude Cahun, Karl Blossfeldt, Agostino Arrivabene, Dan Mumford, H.R. Giger, Josan Gonzalez, Martin Ansin, Petra Collins, Anton Semenov, Austin Briggs

Mindblowing Styles suggested by you

Starting today, our weekly updates will have a new format. Instead of publishing large batches of freshly added styles, we will put out less—to focus more on each artist and technique.

In the first update of the new kind, I want to say THANK YOU to the Midlibrary community. To you! For your support, feedback, and your constant suggestions. We test every name you send, carefully catalog them, and write a short bio for each artist (for the future website)—and this is how Midlibrary grows. So thank you! In this update, we feature ten mind-blowing styles that you suggested.

James C. Christensen, Kazumasa Nagai, Paula Rego, Frank Quitely, Abigail Larson, Ludwig Bemelmans, James Bidgood, Quilted, Henry Darger, Carlos Cruz-Diez
