How to Use Midjourney to Create Stunning Fantasy Gaming Images: Step by Step Tutorial

Updated: Feb 27, 2023



Midjourney is a powerful artificial intelligence tool that allows users to generate stunning images in a matter of seconds. This tool is particularly useful for fantasy gaming, as it enables you to create custom characters and settings for your game world. In this tutorial, we will show you how to use Midjourney to generate a unique human warrior with shield, sword, full body, in a specific style, such as Street Art.

General Structure of a Midjourney Prompts:

  • Beginner: /imagine [insert image description], [style or artist]

  • Intermediate: /imagine [camera angle], [insert description], [style or artist], --[aspect ratio, quality]

  • Advanced: /imagine [url], [camera angle], [insert description], [style or artist], --[aspect ratio, quality], [seed]

  • Expert: /imagine [url1], [url2], [url3], [camera angle], [insert description], [style or artist]::1, [camera angel] [additional description], [style or artist]::1, [camera angle], [additional description], [style or artist]::2-- [aspect ratio, quality], [seed]

Before we get started, it's important to note that Midjourney is a Discord bot, which means you will need to have a Discord account in order to use it. If you don't have one already, you can create one for free at discord.com.

Once you have a Discord account, you can add the Midjourney bot to your server by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Midjourney website at https://midjourney.com/.

  2. Click on the "Add to Discord" button at the top of the page.

  3. Follow the instructions to add the bot to your server.

Once you have added the Midjourney bot to your server, you can start using it to generate custom images. The easiest way to do this is by using the "/imagine" command followed by the desired parameters.


For example, to generate a human warrior with a shield, sword, and full body, in the style of Street Art, you would type the following command into a Discord chat:

Human Warrior Street Art

/imagine human warrior with shield, sword, full body, Street Art

--Midjourney: human warrior with shield, sword, full body, Street Art--

Midjourney will then generate a unique image based on those parameters. The process usually takes just a few seconds, and you can generate as many images as you like by changing the parameters.

Now let's take a closer look at some of the different human warrior with shield, sword, full body, [insert] options that you can create with Midjourney.
