Midjourney | Design Stunning Consistent Characters with Advanced Prompt Techniques | Cyberpunk

Updated: Oct 18, 2023

How to create consistent characters in Midjourney?

If you missed the previous posts, I showed how Midjourney is getting better at producing consistent characters, with the right instructions in the prompt.

This is super important if you are writing stories, drawing comics, graphic novels, creating social media pages, avatar, writing novels with graphics and more...!


Now I want to take this technique to the next leve.

The challenge is this: "how do you describe in a few words what character you want to draw and, most of all, how do you get Midjourney to draw the same character over and over?" In the previous posts we explored how to do it by uploading pictures or using my secret techniques of naming your characters and giving them a description.


Today, we will take this to the next level: let's get started!

Yesterday I tried a few prompts with a Blade Runner, cyberpunk vibe, and today I decided to work on these, refine them and see what comes up.

I am getting inspiration for a Blade-Runner inspired comic and I need some badass characters.


So I went to Jasper and I typed in yesterday prompt.


"Black Hair woman Asian Lee Hun, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bright colors, hyperrealstic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9"


I wrote in Jasper: "give me 20 prompts where you just create new characters with original names and description, and keep the same structure"


Jasper is a super cool artificial intelligence software that I use to write and to do basically everything, as I am using AI as a virtual assistant. AI used as a virtual assistant is absolutely the next level of efficiency and automation, as it is available 24/7, it never sleeps, it knows more than any human will ever do, and it can help me do everything, from writing stories, to character ideas, to write a grocery list following my diet, calibrated for 2 people, for 1 week! (but let's not lose focus here!)


Jasper gave me 20 characters and 20 descriptions to start. Note that I didn't come up with the names or the description. But I just ask AI to help me generate them starting from a prompt I had, so I can use them in Midjourney Prompts.


Also, I wrote the instructions in a way that Jasper will give me back the prompts ready to copy-paste in Midjourney!


This is just a fraction of a fraction of the possibilities of using AI for creators!

You can use AI writers basically for everything, including, as we will see, tweaking prompts! And we didn't even started asking for ideas for a plot!


Let's start with the characters in Midjourney and see what we got!


Note that, not all the characters will be perfectly consistent across all the images with this technique. However, you will be surprised to see how similar the character look using this secret technique that I discovered! This will take your characters to the next level!


Let's see what happens when I copy-paste my new prompts in Midjourney!

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Red-haired man, Irish Liam O'Connell, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


I add "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Red-haired man Irish Liam O'Connell strides down the futuristic city street, his fiery locks contrasting with the neon-lit surroundings - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Red-haired man Irish Liam O'Connell strides down the futuristic city street, his fiery locks contrasting with the neon-lit surroundings - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


We can see we have already 3/4 different angles of the same character "Red-haired man Irish Liam O'Connell", which can be used for a story, in about 1 minute of work!

I can see that with this character, sometimes Midjourney adds very long hair, so a possible idea would be to call him something like: "Red-short-haired man Irish Liam O'Connell" or something similar, to get more consistency in the results.


Among all the output that Jasper gave me, there are prompts where some creative expressions were added, and I noticed that it gives originality to the results.

Here are 4 pictures that could almost be the same person, if not across a scene, definitely across a story.

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Sofia Oliveira - Brown-eyed, Portuguese woman moves with elegance through the neon-lit city, her striking features and composed demeanor providing a sharp contrast to the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Mustached man, French Jacques Dupont, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


I add "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Jacques Dupont - Mustached, French man exudes sophistication as he walks down the busy futuristic street, his suave demeanor perfectly complementing the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Jacques Dupont - Mustached, French man exudes sophistication as he walks down the busy futuristic street, his suave demeanor perfectly complementing the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


Another character that comes up pretty consistent across the images!


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Bald man, American John Smith, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


I add "with bold colors" and another very cool description that helps me design the character with a slick pose, camera angle and background!


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Bald man American John Smith, dressed in a sleek black suit, moves swiftly through the crowded cyberpunk marketplace - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


I add "with bold colors" to the original prompt and removed the action

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Bald man, American John Smith, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Blonde woman, Swedish Ingrid Johansson, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


I add "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Blonde woman Swedish Ingrid Johansson walks with purpose through the bustling cybernetic metropolis, her Scandinavian features catching the eye of passersby - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


IRE-RUN "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Ingrid Johansson - Blonde, Swedish woman exudes confidence as she navigates the neon-lit streets, her striking appearance and sharp features embodying the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Ingrid Johansson - Blonde, Swedish woman exudes confidence as she navigates the neon-lit streets, her striking appearance and sharp features embodying the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


As you can see, Midjourney is giving me 4 pictures everytime, and in many cases they look like they could be the same character, in different poses!

I then stumbled upon a character I really liked! And decided to work with him!


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Bearded man, Turkish Mehmet Yilmaz, in the style of Artgerm in front of a train door, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 9:16 -


So I open the picture in a new tab, I copy the URL, I pasted it in Midjourney and I started to add to the prompt, as I explained here.

And the results where pretty cool immediately! Same character, different pose!


I then re-run the prompt, both adding actions or adding actions + rewriting the original prompt. Sometimes I also added "in the style of Artgerm", as the original prompt, but I noticed that I had very cool results even without it.


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:https://s.mj.run/hKAboPQS5xc walking in a street --ar 16:9


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:https://s.mj.run/hKAboPQS5xc Bearded man, Turkish Mehmet Yilmaz, in the style of Artgerm, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 9:16 -


Amazing consistency! I m very happy!


RE-RUN PROMPT - /imagine prompt:https://s.mj.run/hKAboPQS5xc Bearded man, Turkish Mehmet Yilmaz, in the style of Artgerm walking in a busy street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN PROMPT - /imagine prompt:https://s.mj.run/hKAboPQS5xc walking in a street --ar 16:9


Not bad! Look at how many poses and scenes I have already! And it's not over! I will come back to work on this character, I just want to test this technique on other characters.


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Glasses-wearing man German Hans Mueller moves with purpose through the futuristic city, his sharp suit and wire-rimmed glasses exuding an air of sophistication - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Brunette woman Russian Natasha Ivanova, clad in a leather jacket and cybernetic enhancements, strides with purpose through the futuristic cityscape - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Ponytailed woman Mexican Sofia Rodriguez moves with a confident swagger through the cybernetic cityscape, her striking features and flowing ponytail setting her apart from the crowd - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Ponytailed woman Mexican Sofia Rodriguez moves with a confident swagger through the cybernetic cityscape, her striking features and flowing ponytail setting her apart from the crowd - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


I have another character!


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Afro-haired woman Jamaican Tamika Brown walks with confidence through the neon-lit streets, her stunning afro and bold features turning heads everywhere she goes - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Afro-haired woman Jamaican Tamika Brown walks with confidence through the neon-lit streets, her stunning afro and bold features turning heads everywhere she goes - Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


As you can see, the characters are not always identical, but most of the pics are pretty consistent!


This is another one that is very consistent across the pictures.


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Curly-haired woman, Brazilian Maria da Silva, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Curly-haired woman, Brazilian Maria da Silva, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9 -


I add "with bold colors" and another description given by Jasper in the prompt variation

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Maria da Silva - Curly-haired, Brazilian woman walks with purpose through the neon-lit street, her fierce gaze and striking features standing out amidst the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, medium shot, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Maria da Silva - Curly-haired, Brazilian woman walks with purpose through the neon-lit street, her fierce gaze and striking features standing out amidst the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, panoramic shot, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


RE-RUN "with bold colors"

PROMPT - /imagine prompt:Maria da Silva - Curly-haired, Brazilian woman walks with purpose through the neon-lit street, her fierce gaze and striking features standing out amidst the Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, fisheye, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9


Not bad! A lot of consistent characters in a few prompts! The images are pretty cool and they would be amazing characters for a comic, a graphic novel and even a book. And, by the way, I am creating them for FREE in seconds!

Now, let's go back to the main character.


I re-run the full prompt with image and I got great results!

RE-RUN PROMPT - /imagine prompt:https://s.mj.run/hKAboPQS5xc Bearded man, Turkish Mehmet Yilmaz, in the style of Artgerm walking in a street, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9

I then went to Jasper again and I asked AI to give me a few actions to add to the prompts, to see what comes up! And the results were again very cool!


PROMPT - /imagine prompt:https://s.mj.run/hKAboPQS5xc, Bearded man, Turkish Mehmet Yilmaz expertly wields a laser cutter, slicing through a metal door with ease, Blade Runner Cyberpunk atmosphere with bold colors, hyperrealistic, insanely detailed --ar 16:9

There you go! With a bit of creativity, I managed to create incredible characters in a very short time! I have used a few different techniques and the help of AI to test Midjourney prompts and create tiny variations from the original prompt.


The results I had were amazing! Same character, same atmosphere, stunning visuals, for FREE and in a very short time! I can now use AI to get ideas and inspiration for stories. Basically, I have no more excuses when it comes to creating art! It's fast, it's FREE, it's super high-quality and it just follows my creative thoughts and expand upon them! What else do I need to get started?

Using AI to get plot ideas: "Give me 5 titles and plots for a cyberpunk action-based novel"


Using AI to get inspiration and for creative writing: "Tell me more about Steampunk and describe a dystopian steampunk city in the style of Steven Spielberg. Then describe a dystopian New York in the style of Philip K. Dick"

Using AI to deepen my knowledge on Cyberpunk: Who are the most famous cyberpunk authors and movies I should watch?


With AI, you have a virtual assistant that never sleeps and knows about everything.

You can leverage AI for creation, to get inspiration, automate tasks and learn new things everyday (and discover "what you don't know")!

TAKEAWAY | Consistent Character - Names and Descriptions Method

One of the ways to create consistent characters in Midjourney is creating characters with a name and attributes like physical description, nationality, outfit or others. This will give more precise instructions to the art generator and will help you get consistent characters faster. You can change the aspect ratio, add different actions to the prompt but ensure you always keep the most part of your prompt the same or create similar variations with small tweaks.

When you upload the picture, you can try adding that you want the character to do or you can keep the original prompt. You can ask AI for suggestions and ideas! The goal is to create prompt variations to keep a consistent style.
