ClassipeintXL (oil paint style LoRA)




the🤦2.1 update

v2.0 was baked with the SAI offset LoRA - this made the model interact poorly with fine-tuned checkpoints also utilizing the same. But even with the base SDXL model, lended a warm color cast to outputs. All-in-all, 2.0 was flawed. 2.1 is all that 2.0 was supposed to be, with the SAI offset LoRA stripped.

Version 2.0 after working on a full checkpoint model, Painter's Checkpoint, I felt I had really completed everything I sought to capture in this particular painting style. I got the balance of detail and gestural mark making and atmosphere that represents a personal ideal aesthetic for the medium of oil painting.

But I missed the versatility of a smaller LoRA file, which can be reduced in strength, combined with other LoRAs more effectively, and run with models other than the base SDXL model. So - I ran a LoRA extraction from my own checkpoint model. That thing was nearly as large as an SD1.5 model, but could be resized down to this 200k file, maybe my last ClassiPeintXL LoRA. Nearly exactly capturing the style of the Painter's Checkpoint, but allowing so much greater versatility.

This is by far the most consistent and versatile LoRA for generating images with SDXL that capture the feel of genuine oil paintings for whatever subject matter you want to prompt.

Recommended settings for use:

  • Start with a full 1.0 LoRA strength and adjust down to 0.7 or 0.8 for a subtler painterly effect. You can adjust upward (to 1.2 or maybe a little more) to maximize the painterly appearance, but it can start to introduce some quirks

  • Use the LoRA with your preferred SDXL model with no refiner. I have so far just stuck with base SDXL1.0 but some other fine tuned models have worked well with it too.

  • I recommend the DPM samplers, but use your favorite. Some may produce softer painting styles that don't suit my taste as much but whatever you prefer is great.

  • Don't do anything special for your prompt - just describe what you want to see. I usually start each painting "oil painting of ..."

  • Feel free to add artist names (Klimt, Mucha, etc) and the LoRA will merge its style with theirs with usually fantastic results.

I'm happy to share my work for free, just as the base model SDXL came free to us all. But if you felt compelled to offer some material form of thanks, you can buy me a coffee https://www.buymeacoffee.com/AdamDArt
