AI-Generated Images & Print Covers

I love reading about history, explorers, and artists that have expanded our vision and knowledge of the world. Just in June of this year, Cosmopolitan magazine was the first publication to have an AI-generated image grace its cover. I believe this is a trend that will continue as AI text-to-image technology gains momentum and acceptance across many industries, including media and publishing.

I gathered some explorers that I have read about and generated the main images for these magazine covers in MJ with the prompt:

[Explorer’s Name], Diorama, full body shot, HDR, Unreal Engine 5, Octane Render, Cinematic, 32k, Natural Lighting, Ray Tracing Global Illumination, Digitally Enhanced, PhotoReal, Hyperdetailed, VFX, High Fidelity –ar 4:5 –test –creative –v 4

MJ still does not possess a good command of typography, since it prioritizes artistry over language comprehension. For that reason, I chose to enhance the MJ images with the magazine’s own brand attributes in Photoshop and InDesign.

Hope you enjoy them. Let me know your favorite explorers.
