Make Art with Artificial Intelligence by Kevin Ashley Book PDF Summary
MAKE ART with Artificial Intelligence A guide on practical artificial intelligence for drawing, art, illustration, and design - for everyone interested in creativity, art, and technology. The book has hundreds of original illustrations made or augmented with AI, 20+ online and video tutorials, 35+ Python notebooks, a GitHub repository and a blockchain art gallery. Written and illustrated by Kevin Ashley, a Microsoft developer hall of fame engineer, and an author of books and courses on artificial intelligence. Think of this book as v3.0 of your drawing class manual on how to sketch, draw faces, emotions, body poses, landscapes, apply light, color, style, emotion, expressions, perspective, generate animations, speech and more with artificial intelligence. All artwork from this book is created or augmented with machine learning and available in online NFT gallery, as well as tutorials and practical examples. The impact of this book in data science community inspired a group of Microsoft engineers and data scientists to implement a project they called Azure Picasso to streamline the path from a conceptual artwork, enhanced with artificial intelligence to publishing art in online galleries. FROM REVIEWS This is similar to the best lecture classes I had in college where the professor talked in class about the concepts and fundamentals but then gave us homework that would let us experiment and try out the concepts hands-on. As an artist who has 30 years of artwork looking to share, I love this book because it's approachable to the novice and useful to the expert. EDITIONS Beautiful Paperback, 8x10, color edition, more illustrations than the e-book, reads like an art book, beautiful print and high-quality paper. eBook - easy to read on phones, tablets and online readers, reflowing text, great for practical tutorials, as the book has many links to tutorials.
