While some images have been made with Midjourney V5, others have been created using Niji mode (Anime and character-specific model).
Midjourney is also extremely capable of creating artworks that require prompts as long as paragraphs to a simple five-word one that brings the ocean to your door. Depending on what you want your AI art to look like, feel free to fully mix and match until you get that masterpiece. And once you have it, keep refining it using these best Midjourney prompts.
