AI Art and Second Life

Images & seamless textures that I generated with AI

A few months ago, I blogged about MidJourney art in Second Life. Second Life designers are now using AI to create more than just pretty pictures for sale. AI can also create seamless textures, help with logo creations, and other graphic design elements. It can be used as a tool to help with the creative process if used wisely.

I’ve been playing around with Stable Diffusion to give my Second Life avatar more realism, but not so realistic that it looks like a morph. I try not to stray too far from the original Second Life image, and that requires trying a lot of different settings. You can view my AI Glow Up album on Flickr for all of the images.

The possibilities of AI art are limitless. It’s exciting to think of the potential of AI art and how it will affect our lives in the future. It’s empowering to know that AI is something that I can use to express myself creatively. I’m looking forward to seeing what I can create with AI, and what new art forms can be born from its use.

What can you use to generate AI art?

If you don’t want to use MidJourney, there are so many alternatives for AI image generation. I’ve been playing around with Stable Diffusion. Stable Diffusion is an AI program that can generate images based on text inputs. What sets SD apart is that you can install it locally on your computer, it’s totally free and offers privacy. I found installing it challenging, but possible by following tutorials online. If your computer hardware isn’t great, it may take forever to generate images.

If you just want to start generating images with ease, I recommend using AI websites like Leonardo or Lexica. These websites are free with limitations, and you can pay for more robust features or privacy. Adobe Firefly is in beta, you can sign up now for access. In the future, what will set these websites apart are the features that they offer, and the price point that consumers are willing to pay.

    The future for avatar design is really exciting! think of the ease you could do using AI to create realistic second life avatars- no longer do you need to study 3D design apps or at least it will make the process much easier for the average person. I hope second life gets an upgrade for the world using AI – it will look much better and the idea of AI characters inworld will be nice.
