Doesn't they say the same thing about photography when it was emerging? ;)
Agreed. This is just depressing and is a detriment to society. If this keeps advancing at its current rate, good art will be so trivial to generate that it won't be special anymore. Art will slowly morph into a banal distraction, with creating an original piece being as easy as applying an Instagram filter. The role of the human artist will change from a craftsperson to someone who picks a bunch of parameters, gives it to the AI, and chooses the best output. This type of technology is a threat to the very existence of art as a craft, will completely devalue artwork, and will make the journey of training to become an artist obsolete. I hate these researchers for what they're doing to a field that I love.
I disagree. There will always be demand for real artists. Like any other digital software, this is just a tool with the possibility to help artists create compelling worlds faster and add realism that would otherwise have taken days to make using other methods. As a 3D character artist, I would love to use this to create quick backdrops to place my characters in to enhance final renders.
CyGames, a studio known for mobile titles like Granblue Fantasy, presented its console-exclusive game ahead of this year’s Tokyo Game Show called Project Awakening. This PlayStation 4 game, to be released for both Japan and the U.S, looks absolutely amazing in its first trailer, even with so little details about the story behind the title.
All we have now is the description for the short clip: “It’s time for the wolves of war to awaken.” Is the hero here contending with those “wolves”? Time will tell. whoever they are. Perhaps the giant dragon-monster he’s taken on is one of them?
We can definitely expect bloody sword action, scary monsters, and more. We also expect stunning beasts monsters shown at the very end (don’t look like wolves, but who knows, right?).
It’s kind of hard to tell anything else, so we’ll have to wait for more.
