AI-generated art can look good, right? Well, meet the artist behind a lot of the fantasy images you'll likely see popping up online. He's not a fan of AI art generators. He's not created the AI art you may have scrolled over. But his name is behind a lot of it.

Greg Rutkowski is a seasoned digital fantasy artist behind some of the most popular Dungeons & Dragons art, and key art for the wildly popular MMORPG Neverwinter by Cryptic Studios, as well as work for Magic: The Gathering and Horizon Forbidden West. But he certainly didn't create that blue-skinned, blurry, eight-fingered dragon rider you may have seen on Twitter.
