GauGAN – paint a landscape with just a few strokes

So you wanna be an artist but you’re not really great at doing much more than drawing stick figures, well your time may be coming. GauGAN from Nvidia turns bare sketches into photo-realistic digital paintings with just a few clicks of a button.

This is an interesting program that has only a few tools. Just three actually which is miles away from most paint programs on the market today but it doesn’t need much because all you need to do is tell it what you’re trying to draw, then make some lines and boom, instant actual drawing.

It’s an interesting program and is meant to appeal to people who want to create casually or need fast results for other matters, not as a stand in for actual artists. After all, the program is close to what an artist can do but it’s not by any means perfect. Currently the program is still in development but may be available in Nvidia’s AI Playground in the future.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
