Stable Diffusion Prompt to Get a Full Body Image

Stable Diffusion is a powerful AI image generator that can create stunning visuals from text prompts. However, generating full body images can be challenging as the model often defaults to portrait style images. Here are some tips and prompt examples to help you reliably generate full body portraits with Stable Diffusion:

Use Explicit Full Body Keywords

Simply adding “full body” or “full figure” to your prompt signals to the AI to zoom out and show the entire body. For example:

A full body portrait of a wizard casting a spell, trending on ArtStation

You can also explicitly ask to see parts of the body like legs, arms, feet etc:

A tall elf ranger standing holding a bow, wearing a green cloak, leather armor, and boots

Describe Clothing and Poses

Mentioning specific clothing items that cover large parts of the body makes it more likely for the AI to depict those areas. Prompts like gowns, capes and armor pieces often lead to better full body generation.

Poses like sitting, standing and walking also help frame full body shots.

Use Landscape Image Dimensions

Switching to a wider aspect ratio signals the AI to zoom out for more space. Common landscape dimensions like 1024×512 or 1280×640 work much better than squares.

Fix Common Issues

  • Strange distortions in legs and feet – Explicitly add boots, shoes or leg details
  • Missing body parts – Call out arms, shoulders, legs etc in the prompt
  • Zoomed in face – Use full body pose keywords, reduce facial details
  • Body cut off at knees or waist – Increase image height
