Nvidia’s Canvas App Is Here to Transform Crappy Sketches into Photorealistic Artwork


If you have ever wanted to paint a photorealistic landscape portrait that Bob Ross would be proud of, but have next to no artistic skills, Nvidia’s new Canvas app will allow you to turn those dreams into reality.

Using GauGAN, an AI painting tool, the Canvas app allows users to paint by drawing lines and shapes across the virtual canvas. The AI will then transform every brushstroke into the material you wish to produce, such as clouds and grass.


Canvas uses “materials” instead of colors, which allows you to expedite the artistic process and see your finished product a lot quicker. So, for example, if you created a body of water but wanted to add some big rocks into the picture, the Canvas app will allow you to draw the shape of a rock and paint it the appropriate material color, and the AI will generate the object into the picture in real-time and include appropriate water reflections.

The Canvas app is currently in beta and includes 15 materials and 9 styles and is available to download right now. Unfortunately, the app is only available to RTX graphics card owners, such as an RTX 20 series, the 20 Super variants, the Titan or Quadro RTX, and the RTX 30 series (provided you were lucky enough to snag one).
