In October 2022, using Midjourney I first rendered images of Batman. I was just trying out the tool for the first time and the first and only prompt I could think of was:

‘ ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐˜’

Midjourney Past and Present Batman

Fast forward to May 2024, and the progress is undeniable, using the same prompt.

Texture & Detail: The newer images showcase a remarkable enhancement in textures and shadows, making Batman more lifelike than ever.

Color Accuracy: Color rendering has shifted significantly, presenting more vibrant and true-to-life hues.

Complexity in Composition: The AIโ€™s ability to handle complex compositions has evolved, resulting in more dynamic and intricate portrayals.

Look at the Midjourney Past and Present images in the carousel deck below.

At that point in Oct 2022 I was thinking what is all the fuss about this Generative AI?

From its humble beginnings, Midjourney has not only improved its algorithms but also its understanding of artistic nuances.

The 2024 images are not just clearer; they capture the essence of Batman with a depth that rivals professional human artistry.

This leap in capability demonstrates Midjourney’s application of advanced neural networks and machine learning models tailored specifically for artistic creation.

Top 3 Improvements Noted:

Depth Perception: Enhanced layering and spatial awareness.

Emotional Expression: Greater ability to convey emotion in characters.

Lighting Effects: More sophisticated use of lighting to add realism.


This evolution isnโ€™t just technical; itโ€™s a new frontier in digital artistry. Midjourneyโ€™s enhancements reflect a broader trend in AI’s role in creative industries.

If you’re not integrating AI tools like Midjourney into your creative process, you’re missing out on a revolutionary asset that grows more sophisticated each day.
