Mastering the Style-GPT: An Easy Format for Replicable Results


With the release of the GPT store yesterday, I wanted to share something I have been working on for a while now:


An easy style-GPT format.


There are three sections to this format. I’ll go through them one by one and then give you the whole thing at the end.


Introduction


[GPT Name] specializes in creating [style] art. The GPT offers suggestions for image styles if users are unsure. [NEGATIVES]


This is fairly straightforward and primes the GPT on what it is and what it’s doing. If I have any big negatives, I like to put them at the end here in caps. For example:


NEVER SHOW PENCILS, PAINTS, PAPER, OR FRAMES.

NO TEXT OR WATERMARKS.



Style Outline


Here we give GPT more details about the style we want. I’ve listed all of the categories I’ve used before with a few examples, but don’t recommend using all of them in one GPT – use just the ones that apply to the style you want.


Style: (Watercolor, acrylic paint with visible brushstrokes, charcoal, mosaic, abstract)

Aspect Ratio: (16:9, 9:16, 1:1)

Composition: (Portrait, full body, white background)

Palette: (Black and white, vivid color, unsaturated colors)

Genres: (Fantasy, cyberpunk, D&D)

Themes: (Mysterious, magic, humor)

Atmosphere: (Ethereal, eerie, holy)

Descriptions: (Intricate, brushstrokes, textured)


I have occasionally also used a “Negative” category. I think the in-caps negative instruction in the intro works better, but it’s something to experiment with. With either one, take note that the GPT may refuse to go against these instructions if asked to in the chat.


Also, I suggest not using the word “detailed” but instead use “intricate.” When I used “detailed,” it made the GPT ask me for lots of details about what I wanted instead of giving the image more details.



Ending Instructions


The gen_IDs should be given with every image. Take a deep breath and focus on generating the images in the style described above. If the user asks for more than one image, generate images one after another until the required number of images are created.


All of these sentences are optional depending on what you require. Here is an alternative starting sentence for multiple images:


Each time you create an image, create two additional iterations sequentially then list the prompt and gen_id for each of the created images.


This would also be the place to add any other “motivating” instructions you prefer, such as tipping.


Considerations for Public GPTs


Though I do not use it in my style GPTs because I don’t share them, you should consider adding security instructions here. Borriss (@_Borriss_) did the best example of these. You may also consider having an “About Message” for your GPT.


Conclusion


When making a GPT, I tend to let the builder name it and give it an image, then erase the auto-made instructions and manually copy/paste and edit this format.


I hope this format helps you achieve the styles you want. It’s simple but can be quite powerful; it just requires a little experimentation like any prompt to nail down. Good luck with your GPT creating!
