Instructions

Tell our AI what to create and the desired style.

Be specific. For instance, "Oil painting of water lilies with vibrant brushstrokes using a happy color palette" is better than "lily flowers".

For custom styles, see below for example prompts 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: Make this dragon red
  • Bad: Make our founder look less awkward in this prom photo
  • Good: Add a purple sunset to this beach painting

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 apply unique modifications and honor intellectual property laws. To make this easier, use our AI Art Remixer to apply unique styles to creations.

  • Can you guarantee unique creations?

    No service can guarantee this, but our AI Art Remixer lets you easily apply unique styles to each creation.

    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.

  • Are you on social media? Can I show off?

    Yes, please do! Tag us on Twitter and Instagram.

  • Can you promote my art or NFTs?

    We love promoting people with compelling stories and cool art. Tag us on Twitter and Instagram, posting graphics created in collaboration with Hotpot. Share details about your background, your work, and how Hotpot helped. Hopefully we can amplify your profile on social media and with journalists and bloggers.

  • How long does image creation take?

    Typically, creation takes 2-10 minutes depending on the settings.

    If we get featured on TikTok or elsewhere, it may take hours. Sorry! We're trying to spin up servers as fast as possible.

  • Can I close the page during creation?

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

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

  • 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, Nvidia, or Microsoft employee?

    Please reach out if you work at Google or Microsoft. We're ready to break up with AWS. Nvidia employees, please reach out. The company is destroying billions in shareholder value with myopic research licenses.
