A Journey Down the Radoslav Zilinsky Rabbit Hole, and Radoxist Studios’ “Awesome Art Generator” Software

Yesterday I saw a really cool picture posted on reddit in a comment:

Worth Enough by Radoxist

Someone asked “Wow, who’s the artist?” and I, wanting to know too, put the image into reverse google image search and discovered that it’s by a guy called Radoslav Zilinsky.

I replied in the thread:

Here’s his DeviantArt page and here’s his company Radoxist Studio.

This morning, for no particular reason, I had another look at the company website.

This time I was intrigued by the “Art Generator Project” tab which I hadn’t noticed before, and the link took me to another site: artgenerator.me.

It turns out that not only has this design studio done work for various high profile clients such as Transport for London, but they have created a piece of software which boldly claims “YOU WILL NOT NEED TO HIRE AN ARTIST AGAIN. EVER.”

Wait…WHAT?!

Of course, this sounded straight out unbelievable and I was very curious to see what “Awesome Art Generator” actually did. It couldn’t be the software it claimed to be…surely?

Sensing a trap, before downloading it I watched the video about the project, which is highly entertaining and well-produced:

At this point, while still a little suspicious, I felt that whatever this software turned out to be I would certainly not be disappointed.

I downloaded it from the site, unzipped the file, started up the app, and straight away typed in my default test word “Bongo Drum”.

Instantly a .jpg image file appeared on my desktop.

I gingerly opened the file and – without any spoilers now – let’s just say I was NOT disappointed with what I saw.

I recommend you take a look at some of Radoslav’s work yourself then give Awesome Art Generator a shot. I think you will be likewise entertained.
