AI Painting Tools: Impact on Designers’ Careers

As a CG painter passionate about exploring new technologies, I'm excited to be at the forefront of AI painting and its potential to create beautiful, unique artworks.

AI painting tools have caused panic among CG painters who have not yet graduated, as AI painting can complete images in a few minutes, much faster than traditional painting. This has caused concern that AI painting may threaten the employment of painters. Baidu’s AI painting platform Wenxin Yige and the generative AI platform “TIAMAT” have both attracted attention from venture capital, showing that the prospect of AI painting is optimistic. To ensure their employment prospects, CG painters should keep up with the development of AI painting and strive to improve their skills.

AI painting tools are becoming increasingly popular in the fashion industry, allowing for the creation of unique and eye-catching images in a fraction of the time it would take to create them manually. Harper’s Bazaar recently celebrated its 36th anniversary by inviting AI painters to create surreal images that combine traditional oriental culture with modern elements. AI paintings have become increasingly popular in the market, with posts selling AI paintings appearing on Xianyu and positions for AI assistants being created on recruitment software. AI has reached the skill level of ordinary people in just half a year, posing a threat to designers who have to compete with AI.
