Stable Diffusion Negative Prompt for Eyes

Stable Diffusion is a powerful AI image generation model that can create highly realistic images from text prompts. However, it sometimes generates unwanted artifacts or flaws in images. Negative prompts allow you to specify elements you want the AI to avoid, giving you more control over the output.

When generating portraits and images with faces, the eyes are a critical aspect that is easy to get wrong. Using targeted negative prompts for eyes can help Stable Diffusion generate more natural, realistic, and appealing eyes in images.

Here are some useful negative prompt examples specifically focused on improving eyes in Stable Diffusion images:

Best Practices for Using Negative Prompts

When adding negative prompts, there are some best practices to follow:

  • Be as specific as possible – “weird eyes” is better than just “eyes”. This gives SD more signal.
  • Prioritize the most important fixes – Don’t overwhelm with too many negatives. Focus on 1-3 key issues.
  • Check if positives help first – Adding specifics like “gentle eyes” in prompts can help before negatives.
  • Try general artifact prompts first – Broad prompts like “artifacts” can cover issues. Then get more specific.
  • Use Weighted Negative Prompts if needed – Prefix the negative with a weight (e.g. “-5: shiny eyes”) to strengthen effect.
  • Test prompts extensively – Evaluating many outputs is key to fine-tuning negatives.
