50+ AI Generated Images of Bob Marley

Prompt: bob marley –ar 16:9

My experimentation with Midjourney AI continues, and I continue to be impressed with the capabilities of this software. Today I’m sharing AI generated images of Bob Marley, an idea that was suggested by my team after I had such a blast generating images of Jerry Garcia last week.

These AI generated Bob Marley images were created using Marley’s name alongside famous lyrics, song titles, and various other themes that may or may not have had anything to do with the artist.

I’ve found that in general, the AI provides a much more accurate depiction when you prompt it with something relevant to Bob Marley, where they would have been plenty of photographic material for it to draw from. Otherwise it tends to produce weird outputs that don’t really look like Bob Marley. I have chosen not to include any of those, and did my best to only include images that do indeed look like him.

AI Generated Bob Marley Images

The images are organized into loose categories, with the Prompt followed by the Image each time. Use the table of contents widget above to jump to a particular song or theme.

I didn’t set many rules with this exploration, and I went through both Marley’s happy beach songs and some of his darker, more political songs to find prompt inspiration, and then just brainstormed random ideas. Enjoy!

Stir It Up

I figured we would ease our way into this exploration of AI Bob Marleys with the easygoing song, “Stir It Up”. This one provides us some nice imagery, but doesn’t get too crazy.

Levitating on a Cloud

While the images here don’t look exactly like Marley, they do capture his essence, and they look cool enough to include them here at the end of the gallery. It was difficult to get the AI to produce realistic-looking images of Marley when placed in such a random context.
