Tim Gibson took some of his own creative commercial work and went up against the bots. Does an AI art generator respond as effectively to a client’s brief as a human illustrator? Tim Gibson takes the Dall-E 2 art generator illustration briefs he’ve already completed, and then we’ll semi-objectively gauge the results vs the real-world artwork. Is the risk real? If so, are artists just the first creative foot soldiers to get mown down in the front line? Or are AI Art Generators just a new tool in the creative’s toolset? The author gives a biased and unscientific test to gauge the current sophistication of these systems, and gets a sense of their competitiveness versus a human counterpart. . . .
