Meet the AI art tool designed by artists

3 min readMay 16, 2024

Discover the power of the first and only AI image generator made by professional artists.

AI-generated illustrations often have an unmistakable ‘made by a machine’ vibe. Creating authentically human-looking artwork still demands serious expertise in using prompts, and that’s exactly what we’re here to fix with Illustration Generator.

A team of artists and engineers behind Icons8 Ouch! bridged art and tech so you can generate perfectly consistent images within authentic authors’ styles.

How is that possible?

These three steps:

  1. We drew 100,000+ illustrations and still draw hundreds of new illustrations weekly. However, we can’t cover all people’s needs, which is where AI steps in.
  2. We made datasets of our illustrations. Unlike other generative platforms, we did not scrape the Internet for images. We used our proprietary data for training.
  3. We trained AI to generate pictures matching our styles. Now, you can get a picture that will look like you’ve hired us. Every next image you generate in the same style will match the previous ones.

It’s like having an infinite illustration pack that you can use even for the most unusual cases.
