Pony Diffusion V6 XL




Pony Diffusion V6 is a versatile SDXL finetune capable of producing stunning SFW and NSFW visuals of various anthro, feral, or humanoids species and their interactions based on simple natural language prompts.

Important information

Make sure you load this model with clip skip 2 (or -2 in some software), otherwise you will be getting low quality blobs.

This model supports a wide array of styles and aesthetics but provides an opinionated default prompt template that allows generation of high quality samples with no negative prompt and otherwise default settings

score_9, score_8_up, score_7_up, score_6_up, score_5_up, score_4_up, just describe what you want, tag1, tag2

(previous Pony Diffusion models used a simpler score_9 quality modifier, the longer version of V6 XL version is a training issue that was too late to correct during training, you can still use score_9 but it has a much weaker effect compared to full string. You can learn more about these tags here).

The model is designed to not need negative prompts in most cases and does not need other quality modifiers like "hd", "masterpiece", etc...

Other special data selection tags include, 'source_pony', 'source_furry', 'source_cartoon' and 'source_anime' and ratings of 'rating_safe', 'rating_questionable' and 'rating_explicit'.

This model is capable of recognizing many popular and obscure characters and series.

If you are looking specifically for pony style, I recommend using one of the two following templates `anthro/feral pony, rest of the prompt` or `source_pony, rest of the prompt`.

This model is trained on combination of natural language prompts and tags and is capable of understanding both, so describing intended result using normal language works in most cases, although you can add some tags after the main prompt to boost them.

Using Euler a with 25 steps and resolution of 1024px is recommended although model generally can do most supported SDXL resolution.

This model will sometimes generate pseudo signatures that are hard to remove even with negative prompts, this is unfortunately a training issue that would be corrected in future models. If that's an issue for you I suggest trying V5.5 or inpainting.

Technical details

The model has been trained on ~2.6M images aesthetically ranked based on authors personal preferences, with roughly 1:1 ratio between anime/cartoon/furry/pony datasets and 1:1 ratio between safe/questionable/explicit ratings. About 50% of all images has been captioned with high quality detailed captions, which results in very strong natural language capabilities.

All images has been trained with both captions (when available) and tags, artists' names have been removed and source data has been filtered based on our Opt-in/Opt-out program. Any explicit content involving underage characters has been filtered out.
