Andras Gets Zapped
Combination of three Midjourney renders, one for the girl looking out the window, another for the crow, and a third forthe bolts of amber lightning.
Aali and the Dragon
Three Midjourney prompts combined, one for the baby, one for the crib, and one for the dragon shadow. Some color correction and blending.
Aileen Rey: It's a VERY Good Day
Combination of two images from Midjourney. One for Aileen and one for the trailer and table.
Sandra at the Bakery: It's a VERY Good Day
Combination of two images from Midjourney. One for the bakery and one for Sandra. Added the bakery logo.
Nurse with Daisy's Bouquet
Entirely from Midjourney with minor color corrections.
Signs of the Times
Three renders...one for the kitchen and tablet, one for Jenkins, and one for the cross. Added show title.
Almost entirely Midjourney, with the prompt "high school lobby, haunted, with a Coke machine." I did a few color corrections and extended a wall. The floor isn't actually a sea of blood in the book, but it definitely evoked the mood, so I left it.
Two Midjourney results combined...one for MB and one for the eyes and mouth.
The Door Man
Two Midjourney prompts (one for the room, one for the tablet and contents) combined with stock image hands.
Killer in Cabin One
Two Midjourney results, combined with a stock photo of the knife and hand, plus color correction in Photoshop.
Julie Chased by Ghostface Wannabe
Two Midjourney results: one for the woman in the cabin and ghoul in the window. Combined in Photoshop with some color correction.
Fire at Hillcrest
A single prompt in Midjourney except for repairs to the wheelchair, for which I pulled in a stock image, and some minor color correction.
Kyle with Lemarchand's Box
Three Midjourney results. One of Kyle, one of the kitchen, and one for the puzzle box. I had to resize the box a bit to get it close. This used Midjourney's photorealism filter.
Carly and Crypt Kickers
Two prompts--one for Carly and one for her pallbearers. And I had to enhance her teeth a bit.
The Grimshaw House in the Nexus
Two prompts. One for the sneaker and one for the hallway. And then I recreated the carpet pattern manually because I'm that big of a Stephen King geek that none of the patterns quite did it for me. Also, some color retouching and I painted in the fire hose cabinet.
Daisy from Julie's Exorcist dream
Two Midjourney prompts: one for the body and room, one for the face. Minor color corrections and cropping.
Andras and Kimaris
Two Midjourney prompts: one for the main scene and one for the whiskey bottle. I did some manual touch-up in Photoshop to the bottle's top.
Chase Being Yanked Back to Haddonwood
Two prompts layered to create the void, stock photo for the silhouette.
Grimshaw House on Fire
A single prompt. I removed a few stray branches and did some color correction.
Jenkins and the Mob
This one was complicated. The main setting and Jenkins, except for the face, was a single prompt. Jenkins's face was from an earlier prompt. The four townspeople were a separate prompt. Color correction and added torches and hands from stock art.
A single Midjourney prompt. I removed an extra ear and did some color correction, but that's it. I will note that it took about ten times entering the prompt before I got one I really liked.
Combination of two Midjourney prompts: one for Aali and one for the town. Some color correction and background removal.
The Grand Rialto
A single Midjourney prompt. I added the words "Grand Rialto" and did some color correction and balancing.
Dani at the Theater
Two Midjourney renders. One was the theater. The other was complicated because I wanted it to match the earlier images I'd chosen for Dani. So I added two image prompts of those earlier renders, and kept submitting until I got one that was pretty close.
