The world of art and design has been seen in an endless debate since AI’s acquired the ability to create visual pieces on their own, something that generates discussion and makes sides for and against artificial intelligence. wonder the limits of these and the time that is missing to be able to replace humans in the most abstract activities such as drawing. However, some organizations and companies are already placing limits on AI’s, as is the case with video games.
Trent Kaniuga, concept artist and creator of the art of many video games such as League of Legends, Hearthstone or Diablo 3, mentioned in a tweet that many of the studios he has worked with are updating their contracts to prohibit the use of AI’s to create concept art in their video games. Although Kaniuga does not mention the studies, he does explain that many developers he worked for are making changes to avoid legal and ethical problems around the creations of artificial intelligences, which often use content under Copyright as learning references. .
It is common for video game art artists to be against designs created by AI, which has led them to actively demonstrate on social networks to prevent the advancement of these products, as was the case in December 2022, in which the Artstation website, in which different artists share their designs for video games, was hacked to fill your home screen with images with the headline “NO TO AI-GENERATED IMAGES”. The rejection of these images has reached the studios, which avoid them because the AI-generated art cannot be copyrighted.
The AI’s will remain under debate one way or another due to the limits that it can break in terms of quality of work and ethical level, as has been seen with the legal norms that they do not comply in order to continue ‘learning’. But for now, game studios prefer to stay away from CGI and stick with traditional artists.
