We are living in a magical time in technology. The emergence and development of new disciplines (artificial intelligence, blockchain...) and their application to our day-to-day activities is revolutionizing everything.
Art is now experiencing extraordinary moments that can change the way of creating in the incoming times. In my opinion, we are living the beginning of what is going to be the art of the future. And by that, I mean AI Art / Generative Art.
What is AI Art?
AI art is art generated with the help of an artificial intelligence.
As you know, artificial intelligence is a branch of computer science that deals with creating algorithms that mimic human intelligence. This discipline has progressed exponentially in recent years, reaching unimaginable milestones.
In the field of art, you team up with an artificial intelligence and your favourite artists to do teamwork whose result is unique that provokes emotions (what Art does) and in some cases surprising and beautiful. And you can apply this technology to all the art disciplines (painting, sculpture, literature, architecture, cinema, music, theater... even cooking!)
Talking about painting, there are many platforms where you can create AI Art. I particularly work with Disco Diffusion and the basic way of doing it is:
1 - You think about the work you want to draw.
2 - You configure a series of simple technical options.
3 - You whisper to the machine a series of instructions
... and voila:
(Examples of images that I have created with Artificial Intelligence)
And if we talk about literature, I have worked in some concept art for the lands of Borhealis. So I shared my ideas of the different continents we want to create with the artificial intelligence, I got the help of some incredible pros like Alexander Jansson, Dennis Halbeck, Rutger Van de Steeg, Sylvain Sarrailh... I whispered to the computer some instructions and...
Note: No init images! (is the new 'No filter' :P)
Birdcourts in L’Haddes - AI Concept Art
L´Haddes is the smallest but the most important and powerful continent in the Metaverse. It is built in the sky. Borhealis is ruled from there. It is joined to the surface by an infinite tower.
New Mestiza City - AI Concept Art
The most important city in Borhealis, where species from different continents coexist. It was rebuilt after the Massacre of the Guardians.
Lost-Lhiam in Selvha - AI Concept Art
Selvha is a continent of endless and dangerous jungles. Nature is extremely dangerous. You need a native to survive more than one hour.
Sumetra in Allicaria - AI Concept Art
Allicaria is composed by deserts, oases, cities of sand… The caverns of hell are famous because no one who has entered them has ever return.
Robacco in Besuria - AI Concept Art
Besuria is a continent made up of oceans, seas, islands and pirates. In Besuria the most paradisiacal islands coexist with the most dangerous borhealians and creatures.
The Fist of the Titan in Hellatia - AI Concept Art
Hellatia is a cold white desert. Except for the frozen forest that formed around the Fist of the Titan.
Endell in Endellion - AI Concept Art
Great valleys, trees, lakes, forests. Cold and humidity are predominant and different kinds of human species and settlements.
We will also be able to write novels with the help of an artificial intelligence and the best writers in the history.
And that will be possible very soon!
