Step 2: Design and Pose Your Characters

With your backdrop in place, it's time to populate the scene with your characters. Again, you can use pre-trained models or create custom character assets by designing your own model. Generate full-body poses and if desired use ControlNet Pose mode to guide the character’s posture.

You can create a Composition to keep the style consistent by blending the model you used to generate the background with the model used to generate your characters (if they are different).

Step 3: Create Character Avatars

For point-and-click games, you'll often need animated character portraits for dialogue boxes or other UI elements. Leverage your completed character assets by using them as reference images and cropping them from the waist up. Then use Character Reference mode to prompt for specific facial expressions or head poses as needed.

Step 4: Add Supplementary Assets and Bring it all Together

With your background and characters ready, round out your scene by generating any additional props, items, or environmental elements using the same style model.

With your background open in the Canvas, upload the others assets needed for the scene and remove their background. Position everything as desired and download your completed image.
