Generated Thick Descriptor (via Chat-GPT 4): Gothic art, prevalent in the Middle Ages, is characterized by verticality and light. This style often includes pointed arches, stained glass windows, and detailed sculptures. In producing art of this style, emphasis should be on creating a sense of elevation, using bright colors, and incorporating religious and mythological imagery, creating a dramatic and otherworldly atmosphere.
Human Observation. The thick prompts did not serve image generation well here. The mention of architecture led to misplaced buildings. This may require human authorship.
The table below depicts New York City’s Times Square and Northern Ontario’s Lake Kenogamissi. The left column shows the results of a “thin” prompt, in which the style was requested in name only. The right column shows the results of a “thick” prompt, in which the generated prompt was used.
