The rise of AI technology has (understandably) made many of us a little suspicious of the art that we see online and frequently the internet's AI accusations have been correct – until now. After Dungeons & Dragons posted a promo for its new player handbook, fans were quick to call the artwork a product of AI – something that artist Katerina Ladon was quick to dispel.
