2.5D illustrator debuts on NFT platform “HINATA”!

FUWARI Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, hereinafter referred to as “FUWARI”) is pleased to announce that it has started selling illustration works by AiHis and AiShe, 2.5D illustrator units that fuse AI and creators at the NFT marketplace “HINATA” operated by the company.
  • A new initiative called 2.5D Illustrator

The growth of AI will bring convenience to human life, but at the same time, there are still strong voices and backlash that human work will be taken over by AI. It is a well-known fact that human tasks are shifting from the field to management by AI, and that the rise of AI is already remarkable in the world of shogi and chess.
Similar voices have been around for a long time in the creator industry. If AI grows, there will be no need for illustrators.
Is that really the case? 

On June 24, they made their debut at the NFT marketplace “HINATA” by AiHis and AiShe, the “2.5-dimensional” illustrators, which fuse the existence of two poles, an illustration generation AI, an illustrator.
They rewrite based on AI-generated illustrations or create works by reinforcing areas that are lacking in depiction.
It is by no means a matter of using AI to create works easily, but it is just a process of understanding “what AI wanted to draw” and compromising to give shape. Announcing that the works created in this way are a collaboration with AI is the activity concept of the two of them, and it leads to an expression of respect for AI.

While the illustrations generated by AI are full of imagination that is not bound by common sense, they have many fatal drawbacks, such as distorted character depictions. Therefore, in order to give shape to a work, it is essential to have a “human imagination” that can supplement information and infer the finished form even from incomplete descriptions. AI and collaboration can enjoy new creative activities based on AI ideas that are not bound by common sense.

Rather than being afraid of the growth of AI, I would like the joy of creating with AI to spread to more people.
Please pay attention to the future activities of the two people who say that they want to spread the concept of “2.5 dimensional” creators through their activities at “HINATA”.
