Tony Isabella’s script for today’s episode called for Abby to be “looking at lots of flowers” in her hospital room. But no such panel existed in the original, published Frank Frazetta story. So I had to get creative.

For the background, I created a room full of flowers via A.I. using Midjourney. You’d think that’d be be easy. But—sheesh! it took me at least 20 gazillion tries to get something that I thought looked right. And even then, I had to add an image of flowers (taken from a photo) to go over the doorway.

Then I clipped a copy of Abby from art we’d already used. Then I placed Abby’s image in a layer over the background of the flowers–carefully positioning her so that she’d block out parts of the art that didn’t fit the script.

Then I added a tint to the overall image to make everything blend together. And then…voila! Done!

Here’s a raw version of the full A.I. art:
