So let’s imagine a world where anyone can conceptualize, or create, the type of artwork or prototyping that was once reserved for experienced and skilled artists.
With AI, do you still need an Illustrator or Graphic Artist?
To simplify things, let us for now focus on the illustrative or decorative facets of creating artwork. And in this case, all without lifting a pencil?
It’s true, imagine using customizable text or audio prompts that result in uniquely rendered images or other digital assets.
Okay, now stop imagining, and let’s focus on how Artificial Intelligence is actually impacting the creative industry at the moment.
Well, to start with, we already know that some people predict that AI will become a valuable tool for artists and creatives, helping them to generate new ideas, or to create new artworks more quickly and efficiently.
Meanwhile, there are others who are concerned that AI will replace human artists and creatives, leading to job losses and a decrease in the value of human creativity.
Although there are a few flaws with some renditions, I’m getting some pretty good results with Lexica. What do you think?

In graphic design, AI is already being used to automate certain tasks, such as image resizing or color correction. However, the practice of using AI generated art is likely to be adopted as part of a creative workflow or process.
Fortunately, it’s unlikely that AI will be able to replace human graphic designers, who bring a unique combination of technical skills, creativity, and understanding of branding and marketing to their work.
In the field of illustration, AI algorithms can already generate simple drawings, but it’s unlikely that AI will be able to replace the unique vision and creativity of human artists any time soon.
However, irrespective of the “human-ness” that a person can add to any creative project, it cannot be ignored that the rise of AI and machine learning technologies in the creative industries, such as illustration and art, has raised concerns about their potential impact on employment in these fields.
Now, whilst there are several potential risks associated with the increased use of AI in these industries, there is also the possibility that artist will embrace the technology and leverage their existing skills.
Here are some concerns artists may have following the introduction of artificial intelligence and art.
Job Losses: One of the main concerns is that AI-powered tools and systems may replace human artists and illustrators, leading to job losses. This is particularly true for routine and repetitive tasks, which can be automated.
Reduced demand for human skills: As AI-powered tools and systems become more advanced, they may be able to perform tasks that were once considered unique to humans. This could lead to a reduced demand for human artists and illustrators.
Wages and Income Decreases: Competition from AI-powered systems may put pressure on the wages and income of human artists and illustrators, as companies seek to reduce costs by using automation.
Displacement of Freelancers: Freelance artists and illustrators may be particularly vulnerable to the impact of AI, as they often work in project-based roles that are easier to automate.
Whilst AI has the potential to displace some jobs in the creative industries, it’s important to note however, that it also has the potential to create new job opportunities. As well as this, ( the “human-ness”) the emotional and creative aspects of art and illustration are still difficult to replicate with AI.
Similarly, in the field of photography, AI is already being used to enhance photos. For example, our so far favorite, AI Image Editing software Luminar Neo helps by removing distracting elements, dust and other unwanted specs, improving lighting and color, replacing or removing image backgrounds or power lines.
However, the creative vision of human photographers is still in high demand, and it’s unlikely that AI will be able to replace human photographers in the near future.
A single word or prompt, can change the direction of your AI rendering. An AI prompt is a set of instructions or a question given to an artificial intelligence system, asking it to perform a specific task or generate a certain type of output.
The prompt can be in the form of text, speech, or images, and it serves as a way to communicate with the AI and guide its actions.
For example, an AI prompt could ask the AI to generate a sentence or a piece of music, or to classify an image as a specific type of object.
The AI uses the prompt to determine what action to take and what type of output to produce.
Here we started with the following worded prompt:
Using the above prompt resulted in a cross between superheroes; Superman and Batman. However, with a little tweaking, namely adding negative prompts; superman and batman in the Negative prompt field of the Lexica search form.
The value of AI prompts can come from their ability to provide users with a more predictable experience. As AI technology advances, the use of AI prompts is likely to become more widespread, increasing their value as a digital asset.
However, there are a few things to bear in mind when using AI prompts. As with any other digital asset, the ownership and use of AI prompts may be subject to copyright and intellectual property laws.
Beside the fine examples you will find at Lexica Aperture v2, head over to Exploring AI for our growing list of useful AI related platforms, tools and tips, plus we have a list of place you can access specific prompts.
Yes, believe it or not there is also the growing use of artificial intelligence with audio. However as expected, AI generated music does raise various legal implications, including issues related to copyright, trademark, and moral rights.
Here are a few key considerations:
These are just a few of the legal implications of using AI generated music, and it’s important to seek legal advice to ensure compliance with the relevant laws and regulations.
