Make Your Own Paintings with Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence has many applications – artwork is just one of them.

In the future, will artists might rely on artificial intelligence tools in the creation process?

With an easy to use text-to-image generation process, anyone in the world can create original masterpieces regardless of technical know how or skill level.

You don’t even have to know what artificial intelligence is to use tools like this. It just goes to show you the exciting power that AI is bringing to our lives.

All you have to do is type a few words, and optionally upload a starting image.

Here is a link to the website: https://creator.nightcafe.studio/create

The website itself is actually fun to use as well – it includes a list of top posts, so you can see which creations have been most popular and most liked by others in the community.

Currently, the most liked post is a picture that resembles a strawberry grenade:

The process of creating the artworks is quite satisfying. It allows you to express just a bit of creativity – coming up with words that might fit together to create something unique, finding a starting point image on Google, and then letting artificial intelligence do the rest.

The exceptional levels of complexity that can arise from such simplistic inputs is quite astonishing.

Write simple words, such as “A mess yet magical” and you might end up with something like the below:

To be honest, this isn’t the first website that allows you to create art with artificial intelligence, but it is one of the most fun, in my opinion.

Say what you will about robots taking over, or artificial intelligence tools replacing human labor in the workforce – the company’s website states that AI is here “to make art creation accessible to the masses”.

And to be frank, the creation process couldn’t be simpler or more intuitive – literally anyone can create something.

Here’s one below that I made, and even added a saccharine title.

This website uses artificial intelligence to enable people to create artwork without any skill, practice, or knowledge.

The ability to build applications that leverage AI as features yet can be used by the layperson even if they are non-technical means that the adoption of AI might end up happening faster that you might expect.

One can only imagine what artificial intelligence generated music might be like as AI applications expand. I can’t wait for someone to build a way to create your own music using a process and technique that is as simple and easy as this one.

How to Create Art with Artificial Intelligence for Free

Artificial intelligence image synthesis is now able to produce realistic images from simple, hand-drawn shapes.

Nvidia’s Artificial Intelligence tool to create Artwork

The AI based artwork tool is built by Nvidia. The tool is called GauGAN, and is available for anyone to use online for free on Nvidia’s AI playground.

Although there are several implications of this technology, but the free Beta version of the application is fun and allows non-artsy people (like me) to unleash our creative side.

How does GauGAN work?

GauGAN works using a machine learning system that’s known as a Generative Adversarial Network, which uses a statistical approach that allows two agents, known as the generator and the discriminator, to engage in an optimization based competition.

This process is a type of unsupervised learning for AI.

This technique ultimately creates more accurate, high-resolution renderings of photos from hand drawn shapes.

As a user, you apply filters and select various labels from which the system will apply a style transfer algorithm to modify the color composition of basic single-colored areas and turn them into more photorealistic scenes.

How will AI Art Creation tools be used?

For digital graphic related disciplines, GauGAN is already being used by artists to build rapid prototypes of scenes and conceptual designs.

The time saving potential that tools like GauGAN will enable are huge.

For the world of video game development, the same is true. As video game creators like Fortnite embark on advancing their in-game creative mode, similar tools could be added to help players make quick mock-ups of maps and environments.
