The Wyrm of the High Seas - Smaugust 2

"Few have the luck, or ill fate depending on your profession - since whalers, and indeed most fishers, report their ships being faithfully sunken by the mighty beast - to meet the high seas wyrm, which otherwise apparently lives in the deep, as crustaceans found on the skin suggest when one strands."

I just discovered today that Midjourney has gone into open beta (three weeks ago already actually, but hey, I never said I was the most up-to-date person ;)) so I happily used my welcome credits for my first tries and ended up with this beautiful beast for my second Smaugust entry. It has been upscaled with another AI tool in addition to Midjourney, and I just had to make a few brushstrokes, lightening the plain black parts of the waves, adding the fin, eye, and stars, and fixing tiny details all over. I am quite happy with this result, the impressively intricate detail produced by this AI in particular is SUCH a timesaver.
