The Shortage of AI Drawing: A Creative Crisis?

Ash Wu & Jerry Tang

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has infiltrated nearly every sector of our lives – from healthcare diagnostics to automated customer service, and yes, even the arts. However, while AI has shown tremendous potential in creative fields like music and writing, the realm of drawing and visual arts seems to be lagging.

Challenges Faced:

  • Lack of Originality: While DeepArt does an impressive job of replicating styles, it doesn’t create a genuinely original piece of art. The tool is more about style transfer than genuine creation.
  • Limited Scope: Users are confined to existing styles rather than exploring truly novel visuals.
