The image generator, Dall-E2 was launched in November 2022 and it was a generation ahead of its previous version, Dall-E, from 2021. It even led to the launch of its competitors like Mid journey and Stable Diffusion. Dall-E2 helped to create a comic strip with AI-generated images using Kermit the Frog. It also created an image of Gollum, the stoor Hobbit from, ‘The Lord of the Rings’ movie, feasting on a slice of watermelon.
The Photorealism of fine-tuned images could be a boon for creative artists
The quality and the flexibility to create a variety of new images from one dataset of the original image can help create artwork like never before. It could also increase the pace of creation. This could be extremely useful for graphical companies and media houses that constantly demand exclusive artwork. But manually, it is not possible to achieve that result.
These things have been highlighted by an illustrator –cum-concept artist who has created creature artwork. The artist has found this technology amusing. According to him, it will help to take art to new heights while also pumping in new artists and amateur illustrators to join this space.
Also, it could help illustrators and concept artists to make a steady career out of it. At this stage, where the craft is mostly done manually on a digital medium, art still takes time to create, and there is a lack of quality work from most people. Also, creatively artistic people who lack top-notch illustration skills lag in this area. AI tech in the art will help them to fine-tune their art pieces and give them a shot at entering the market and making a career out of it. Many magazines covers today use AI art for their work.
Other areas of revelling were the meme industry which could flourish with the creation of both static and dynamic images with the help of AI Art. Even the video industry is seeing a lot of profitability with AI and Art-tech.
The Dark Side of AI-generated Art
Even though it has created a plethora of opportunities, the new and advanced prowess of Artificial Intelligence in the field of art is extremely dangerous for budding artists. Many naysayers are looking at this technology with disdain. According to Noah Bradley, a YouTuber who also is a patron of art AI, this technology will create a lot of copyright snags. It could also be detrimental to tapping into human creativity.
Human input shall always be required to supervise systems like Dall-E2
Despite being fairly autonomous systems, data scientists and ML experts have said that Art. AI technologies like Dall-E2 shall require human intervention in one form or another. Today, it requires manual input from humans. In the future, the human role could be minimized but can never be brought down to zero. There will always be a requirement for human intervention in multiple places. But it will surely bolster the pace of creating and editing roles for artists.
