Custom Styles

For custom styles, be specific. For instance, "Oil painting of water lilies with vibrant brushstrokes using a happy color palette" is better than "lily flowers". See below for example instructions and see here for example outputs.

Custom Examples:

  • Oil painting of water lilies with vibrant brushstrokes using a happy color palette
  • A portrait of Taylor Swift with harmonic colors of purple and yellow
  • An underwater explosion with vibrant colors
  • A painting of wine glasses with harmonic colors and thin brushstrokes
  • Happy raindrops in the style of Vincent Van Gogh's painting, Starry Night
  • The ocean at sunset in the style of an oil painting, with smooth gradients of purple and yellow and bright, happy colors
  • Creative oil painting of the ocean at sunset, with smooth gradients of purple and yellow
  • The sunset over the desert in the style of Claude Monet using bright and harmonic colors
  • Flying fish in the style of Picasso using smooth gradients of yellow and blue


To modify seed images, provide specific and realistic directions. Our AI is good, but not God. Guide our AI toward reasonable changes to the seed image with simple, concrete instructions.

Seed Image Examples:

  • Bad: Make our founder as handsome as Brad Pitt
  • Good: Fantasy oil painting in blue color
  • Bad: Make our founder look less awkward in this prom photo
  • Good: Gorgeous watercolor painting with purple and yellow hues

Pricing & Licensing

Buy credits for commercial use and shorter wait times.

Free images are licensed under CC BY-NC.

For legal purposes, we store cryptographic hashes of generated graphics -- but not the graphics themselves. This allows us to identify Hotpot creations.

Wait Time

  • Creation takes 2-20 minutes depending on the settings. If traffic is high, it may take 3-5 hours.

    For faster wait times, please buy credits. Paid users get priority, and skip the line. (Paid users subsidize free use.)

    Waiting sucks. Sorry. We're working hard to fix this. Google/Azure employee? Contact us. We want to break up with AWS.

Art Maker FAQ

  • Can I sell graphics or use them for NFTs?

    Yes, but first buy credits: one license per graphic.

    Second, treat Hotpot as a digital helper who augments your workflow, someone who helps brainstorm and automate tedious work -- but not someone who eliminates the creative process. We cannot guarantee uniquess anymore than Photoshop can. It is possible for someone to produce something comparable with other AI or software, much like any logo or graphic can be reproduced.

    Ultimately, it's your responsibility to make unique graphics and honor intellectual property laws. To make this easier, use our AI Art Remixer to uniquely style creations or use seed images.

  • Can I close the page?

    Yes. First save the image URL under each result, and check later. If you have an account, creations are saved to your account.

    Paid users get more storage. Please buy credits to save all creations.

  • Can you guarantee unique creations?

    No service can guarantee this, but our AI Art Remixer lets you uniquely style each creation. Using custom seed images also increase uniqueness.

    Even if we prevent others from reusing your identical prompt, others may use similar prompts and produce similar results. If another graphic looks 90% the same, is yours truly unique? The safest way to treat Hotpot is like a digital helper who augments your workflow, someone who helps brainstorm and automate tedious work -- but not someone who eliminates the creative process.

  • What is creation time?

    Creation time defines how long our AI spends creating your graphic. Typically, more time translates into more details and higher quality, but this depends on the style you're aiming for. Sometimes less polished, more abstract graphics are more desirable.

  • Can you promote my art or NFTs, or can I show off?

    Yes! Please tag us on Twitter and Instagram if you want to show off your awesome Hotpot creations.

    We love promoting people with compelling stories and cool art who collaborated with Hotpot. Tag us, share details about your background, your work, and how Hotpot helped. We'll do our best to amplify your story on social media and with bloggers.

  • Will AI replace humans?

    If you believe this, we recommend using Siri more often. :)

    On a serious note, we see AI more as "augmented intelligence" -- technology that augments people rather than replaces them. In the long term, it is possible scientists and researchers invent general intelligence that one day displaces humans, but that day is certainly not today.

    Those who deride the limitations of machine learning overlook how many paid human tasks require little intelligence. More concretely, AI could immensely benefit humanity even without achieving AGI.

  • I'm on a budget. Can you offer a discount?

    Yes, contact us. Our pricing philosophy is to help the poor and charge the rich.

  • Google/Microsoft employee or Nvidia shareholder?

    Please reach out if you work at Google or Microsoft. We're ready to break up with AWS. Nvidia shareholders, please reach out or broker an introduction to Jensen. The company could unlock billions in shareholder value with one tiny change.
