Free AI artist app

NVIDIA Canvas for Windows is a free art application from NVIDIA that transforms small brush strokes into a photo-realistic landscape. While AI is easy to use, it presents a learning curve. However, frequent use of the software will make designing new landscapes easier.

While many will debate if AI can make real art, Corel Painter is an alternative that lets the user draw their own pictures. Similarly, ZBrush is a great option when creating 3D models through sculpting. 

Create landscape in moments

NVIDIA Canvas is an AI tool that sculpts realistic landscapes with only a handful of brushstrokes. The software has a wide selection of tools that help optimise workflow. Add layers, pick different brushes, and watch on a split screen as a drawing takes life. 


Once a basic landscape has been created, it can be imported into Adobe Photoshop and refined further. This feature makes it easy to create landscape backgrounds in pictures and use them in any project.

No art skill needed

Using NVIDIA Canvas to create a landscape doesn’t require any skill or art experience. A pre-AI landscape often looks like a child’s drawing, with flat colours representing different elements. 

Without AI, these drawings would seem out of place. However, thick, dull lines become rocks, and blue streaks become rivers. Thanks to intelligent AI, the application is easy to use for users of any level. 

Hard to master

NVIDIA Canvas is easy to learn, yet it’ll require time to master its full capabilities. Drawing and creating layers of scenery will take effort to perfect into a realistic and believable landscape. All it takes to start using the software is a computer and the downloaded program, as it won’t work on mobile devices or browsers.

Changing a landscape’s lighting and style will dramatically affect the result by using the option to pick a palette. Switching to night-time will remove the sun, adding shadows and setting a quieter mood on the landscape.

AI works of art

NVIDIA Canvas is a free application that can run without the Nvidia RTX graphics card. The software enables the creation of detailed landscapes with plain brushes as the user’s tools. The AI will convert initial, basic brush strokes into a photo-realistic interpretation of the image.

NVIDIA Canvas is a great tool, whether it’s just for fun or r using it for projects. Learning to use the software is easy,  but it will require patience to create stunning realistic landscapes.
