• ✔️ Good for inference: AnimeBoysXL is a flexible model which is good at generating images of anime boys and males-only content in a wide range of styles.

  • ✔️ Good for training: AnimeBoysXL is suitable for further training, thanks to its neutral style and ability to recognize a great deal of concepts. Feel free to train your own anime boy model/LoRA from AnimeBoysXL.

  • ❌ AnimeBoysXL is not optimized for creating anime girls. Please consider using other models for that purpose.

Inference Guide

  • Prompt: Use tag-based prompts to describe your subject.

    • Append , best quality, amazing quality, best aesthetic, absurdres to the prompt to improve image quality.

    • (Optional) Append , year YYYY to the prompt to shift the output toward the prevalent style of that year. YYYY is a 4 digit year, e.g. , year 2023

  • Negative prompt: Choose from one of the following two presets.

    1. Heavy (recommended): lowres, (bad:1.05), text, error, missing, extra, fewer, cropped, jpeg artifacts, worst quality, bad quality, watermark, bad aesthetic, unfinished, chromatic aberration, scan, scan artifacts, 1girl, breasts

    2. Light: lowres, jpeg artifacts, worst quality, watermark, blurry, bad aesthetic, 1girl, breasts

    • (Optional) Add , realistic, lips, nose to the negative prompt if you need a flat anime-like style face.

  • VAE: Make sure you're using SDXL VAE.

  • Sampling method, sampling steps and CFG scale: I find (Euler a, 28, 5) good. You are encouraged to experiment with other settings.

  • Width and height832*1216 for portrait, 1024*1024 for square, and 1216*832 for landscape.
