It’s a place that you can share, discover and browse different models, perfect if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration and feedback.
Create an account, upload your model and share it with the world. It’s as simple as that. Civitai is all about collaboration, creativity and community. Share feedback on other creator’s models and help them improve. There’s also a Civitai Discord channel that you can get involved with, so you can speak directly to other creators, share learnings and carry on creating - it feels like you’re really part of something.
The Civitai team are constantly working on making updates and improving the platform. They have a great feature where you can actually submit your ideas directly to them, so if it’s a new feature, tool or thought you’d like to share, you can!
There are hundreds of different models on the platform to discover and try out, but if you have a specific style in mind, make sure to use the search engine so you can find your perfect model nice and quick. Once you’ve found the model you were looking for, you’ll be shown a list of different services that are compatible with the chosen model, meaning you’ll be creating something beautiful on your preferred platform, in no time.
Civitai wanted to created an open source AI art model platform that was accessible to all, democratising AI media creation and making it a shared inclusive journey. It now makes sense why there is such a sense of community! And for this reason, Civitai is also free to use. If you want to give back to the platform, they do have the option to become a supporter and/or a donator. The support tier will set you back $5/month but you will get early access to new features, a unique supporter tier badge, a unique nameplate colour and a unique Discord role. If you would like to make a donation, your one time donation includes a unique donator badge, a nameplate colour and unique Discord role for 30 days.
The sense of community and support doesn’t stop there. Delve into loads of different posts that were created by Civitai members, where they share their insights and experiences on how to use file types, different tools and they AI model techniques - there’s plenty to learn! It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned AI art model pro or just getting started. Civitai welcomes you to the AI model world with open arms.
