Destiny 2 Art Featured In TWAB Reportedly AI Generated
Destiny 2 art featured as part of an ongoing fanart series in the developer’s This Week at Bungie series has apparently been generated by artificial intelligence, reports Destiny Tracker. A user named Hebb appears to have submitted the Destiny 2 artwork in response to a call for community members to post their Destiny 2-themed designs. Although Bungie does not appear to have an express rule prohibiting fans from to submit AI-generated artwork for the FPS game’s Community Creations page, recent conversations about this art have sparked controversy over what it means to create art in the first place.
In response to a comment on the site noting that the work was AI-generated, the creator hints that he didn’t mean to fool anyone as to what it was.
“Woah, I just thought the photo was really cool so I posted on the creations page. I’m going to delete the post” hebb wrote. Artwork is no longer immediately visible on the Destiny 2 Community Creations site.
While it can be difficult to tell AI-generated art from human-created art, there are a few signs that something may not have benefited from the careful attention to detail that we have. a human artist can provide. Although AI-generated art can create elaborate renderings, many artists have pointed out that hands are difficult for computer programs to master. With this particular piece, some observers noted that the hands looked unusual, which is often a sign that a piece of digital art was produced by an AI.
AI art programs typically work by taking artwork pulled from the web or some other database and relying on algorithms to synthesize the art styles of those works. In turn, the AI program can create new works from these algorithms. Users can then specify what they want to see based on the prompts. While the result may be something unique and beautiful, it still relies on artwork created by humans, who generally do not receive compensation or recognition for their contributions to AI-generated work.
While some Guardians felt that the art was interesting and distinctive and deserved to be featured, whether it was created by artificial intelligence or not, the majority shared views regarding the challenges of enabling the AI-generated art to be included as community creations. First, there’s the simple matter of taking AI-generated art and passing it off as its own without any reference to the fact that it was algorithmically created. Additionally, others have suggested allowing such art would entice people to submit AI-generated art, distracting from the art that hardcore fans spend so much time and energy on. create.
Some have even gone so far as to suggest that Bungie might discontinue the fanart feature series, which rewards players with a special emblem if their work is featured, due to the difficulty of discerning the AI-generated art of the game. man-made art. While such a fanart contest is intended to be a way to encourage and recognize creativity within the community, it might be difficult to ensure that all submitted works come from sources other than AI. There are tools designed to detect AI-generated artwork, but using this technology adds a level of difficulty to a project that was simply meant to acknowledge the hard work of Destiny 2 superfans.
Regardless of its artistic merit, it appears that Hebb still violated Bungie’s terms of service by uploading the art and passing it off as his own.
“If you share something that doesn’t belong to you, always credit the creator and link us to the source!” The Bungie Community Creations submission link reads. In this case, the person didn’t clearly reveal that the art was rendered by AI, nor did they appear to provide a link that would point to the true source of the artwork.
