sdxl's base style

These are the 77 styles that come with the SDXL style selector.

However, it doesn’t end here.

Now, if you desire additional styles and seek inspiration from any source, let’s delve into how you can achieve this.

How to Create, Add/Delete Styles

In this section, I am going to show you how to create Stable Diffusion styles suitable for all models including SDXL taking inspiration from any site.

Whether you are using automatic 1111 or any other web UI, you can easily create styles.

But before diving in, remember:

Styles empower you to incorporate personalized text into prompts. Employ the {prompt} token within the style text, and it will seamlessly integrate with your prompt upon application.

Alternatively, the text from the style will be appended to the end of the prompt.

So, first of all, find your inspiration. In my case, I have chosen the below prompt.

Prompt: Sticker {of an ultra-detailed portrait of Morena Baccarin}, high-quality cell-shaded illustration in post-apocalyptic style by Yoji Shinkawa, dynamic pose, perfect anatomy, centered, freedom, soul, red long hair, approach to perfection, cell shading, 4k, cinematic dramatic atmosphere.

Negative prompt: Men, blurry, disfigured, deformed, toy, cartoon, poorly drawn, extra limbs, close up, weird colors, blurry, watermark, blur haze

Now test the prompt style by just generating an image.

Sticker style

Okay, I want to go with this image style.

Now, click on the pencil icon just right of the style and you will land on the page to give data for style.

Here you should use the generic style, in my case, I am replacing {of an ultra-detailed portrait of Morena Baccarin} by {prompt} and hit the save button.

Screenshot to save style in SD

In this way, you can save your preferred style effortlessly for future use. To delete a style, simply select it and press the delete button—easy as that!

If you’re still unsure or looking for more styles, check out this GitHub page.

There, you’ll find 52 pre-made styles ready for download. Some are brand new, while others have already been discussed in this post.

Final Verdict:

I hope you’ve discovered your desired styles or have the ability to create a new style on your own.

Before you go, keep in mind that styles are usually named after artists or art movements, serving to mimic a specific artist’s style or to craft a more general artistic flair.

So, keep experimenting to achieve perfection. If there’s anything I missed, please let me know in the comment section below.
