  1. A.I can already recognize rough sketches and training them to draw is already being done. Making art, however, is a process, and based on personal experience half of the process is deciding on the fundamentals. Form, direction, lighting. this trial and error process is crucial in making art that looks 'right'. Just feeding images into a machine learning algorithm can't teach an A.I. the process of making said Images.
  2. For students and artists of traditional mediums of drawing starting digital drawing, high end drawing software is rather costly. Market level software doesn't offer the same level of control that the premium ones do.
If a company or Individual was to create a high quality digital drawing software that collected data from it's users they could allow many more people to try their hand at digital art while making a profit by selling the data they harvest to tech companies.
An interactive A.I program that can help you through the process by refrencing from a database of thousands of artists therefore saving you time and effort.

Expanding this idea as a tool for learning artist

Correct me if I am wrong, but you are suggesting the user teaches the AI or does the AI teaches the user? Or is it a mix of both(Eg the AI learns about the user drawing habits and style) Apologies, I would just like to clarify!
Because personally, I think the latter would be a great way for one to learn how to draw digitally. If we could come up with an AI that can "edit" and "correct" the user drawings, it would help tremendously in allowing the user to first understand the fundamentals and basics of digital drawings. I have tried drawing digitally in the past and one problem I faced was that while I was looking at many references/artist inspiration, I did not understand how to translate drawings on pen and paper onto the digital canvas. This AI can suggest brushes(their hardness/softness/colour etc) and their strokes on specific areas of the drawing to aid the user as they go along creating their work. Alternatively, it can also be programmed in such a way where it corrects the user drawing after the user has completed their drawing(sort of like a auto-enhance function in photo editing). This feature does not have to be fully automatic. For example, step by step instructions can be given on how to improve the drawing and it is up to the user to follow it. In addition, I think it be great to allow users to mimic the artistic style of their favourite artist. That being said, at the end of the day, the user should still have complete creative freedom and the AI shouldn't spoonfeed them all the way. We do not want the users to copy their references completely but instead use them as inspiration.

yeah yeah..you got it ..The idea was to teach an AI the process..then use the AI as a tool to help artists.(sorry I wasn't clear enough)thanks for expanding on it

Contrived _voice No worries! I actually think this is a very feasible and useful idea especially for struggling artist! like me:) I think the hardest aspect would to be programme the AI properly, be it either through deep learning and other neural methods etc. However, if successful, I believe it could change the way people approach art and provide a much more positive in learning it!

Darryl Koh Yuan Jie That was the motivation behind it. I spent 3 hours working on the sketch and wondered why there wasn't an app like grammerly but for drawing, then got too caught up on how it could feasibly work I forgot to explain the original intention.
