Science fiction visual worldbuilding with AI

Liked THE VESARION-3 AI PROJECT by Jesse Rockwell (jesserockwell.com)

THE FIRST DISCOVERY OF INTERSTELLAR INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE YEAR 2026

Being that the Neo-Texzalius civilization is at least a thousand years more advanced than the human race, there is much we can learn from their technological, and spacefaring achievements. Earth Scientists aim to forge a working relationship to acquire these advanced and extremely capable technologies, which will serve a huge benefit to humanity.

I like the consistent style throughout the project, the old book/journal look with ink illustrations somewhat a la Leonardo da Vinci. The organic art nouveau inspired drawings suit AI generation, as does the alien civilization theme, which can both probably be visually more forgiving of weirdness in rendering. The muted color palette with mostly blue and red/orange looks good. Reminds me a bit of Dinotopia in approach. A hint of Shaun Tan in the dreamlike world vibe? The architecture is at once grandiose, classic, and confusing without seeming threatening. Kinda like the statue world in Piranesi, wings and wings of ever so slightly different style and layout.
