Mechanical Blueprint, Prelude 1 to Vibrant Beginnings

by GymDreams
Stable Diffusion, Vibrant Horizon Turbo XL

Most of my works start with a simple idea and prompt. Vibrant Beginnings was an iteration of something else. I was originally testing to see if Vibrant Horizon Turbo XL could produce something which took almost 10 times longer to render back in October 2023. Since I rendered these on machines with wildly different specs, it’s not a direct comparison. But you can compare spec to spec.

  • Machine Man: 50 steps, DPM++ Karras
  • Mechanial Blueprint: 8 steps, Euler A

The Euler A sampler is approximately twice as fast as DPM++ Karras, so the relative speed can be calculate as follows:

50 / 8 x 2 = 12.5x

What that means = If normally an SDXL render would take 1 minute (60 seconds) on your machine to render, then the TurboXL of the same image would take 60 / 12.5 = 4.8 seconds on the same machine to render. See why I’m curious if I could reproduce similar prompts?

Machine / Man. Inspired by Da Vinci’s mechanical blueprints. Stable Diffusion and SDXL.

The prompts are not exactly the same, but this was a starting point for me. Some of my followers on Instagram noticed that the prompt for Vibrant Beginnings is quite long, but that’s a result of prompt elaboration. Most of my prompts are rather short, before I build up on it.

For this mechanical blueprint, it had very humble beginnings. It has lots of typos, but you see that Stable Diffusion could interpret it regardless. Just that blue was picked up because I accidentally added a space between blue and print.
