I first want to say the featured image for this Blog is not a Selfie.
I can’t avoid hearing about artificial intelligence, shorten to just AI. The modern multifunction cell phone is about 15 years old. It changed the world.
AI, the kind that is easily accessible to the masses around the world, has been around for a time range measured in months! Incredible!
I was curious when ChatGPT first came out, and I had it write a very good draft to promote my e-Book of my first year of Blogs. I was impressed with the result.
Some major projects, my priority ones, are lowering their time demands, so I decided it was time to teach myself to draw. Sketching stickmen is my current level of expertise. I decided to use the Procreate drawing app. I’ve followed a few YouTube videos for beginners, and I’m enjoying this learning process.
I thought it would be fun to ask ChatGPT to do a drawing of mountains in Procreate. After a few seconds, it responded. (I’ve included the actual response after my signature block for those who are curious.)
It couldn’t draw anything, but it did give me a good starting point, given my limited knowledge. The only wrong piece of information was that the final step #6 should have been step #3 to avoid loads of frustration, as in – “Why didn’t you tell me that earlier?”
There are some AI programs that look at millions of images and can ‘create’ a single image based on the text you give it, such as, “Show me a children’s birthday party with a cake and candles.”
I realized that my couple of months spent learning the very basics of the sophisticated Procreate software may be wasted if. In a year or so, I could just ask AI to draw the scenery for me in Procreate.
I also understand that it was the learning process itself that I enjoyed. I’m sure I’ll enjoy learning how to create beautiful pictures for years to come.
I’m curious about your thoughts. Please give this a bit of a think. How might you dip your toes in the AI water? What would you like to ask it? I might even take some of your ideas and ask it myself, then post the responses – with no identifying information, of course.
Please share your bit of a think below.

Draw an image in Procreate of mountains.
I’m sorry, but as an AI language model, I don’t have the capability to create visual content like images or drawings. However, I can provide you with some guidance on how to draw mountains in Procreate.
- Start by creating a new canvas in Procreate and selecting a suitable background color or texture.
- Choose a suitable brush for drawing the mountains. A brush with a textured or rough edge will help you create a natural-looking mountain range.
- Draw the outline of the mountains with a light color and thin brush. You can use a reference photo or a rough sketch as a guide.
- Add shading and texture to the mountains by layering darker colors on top of the lighter ones. Use a variety of brush strokes and techniques to create a realistic texture.
- Add details such as snowcaps, trees, or rocks to make the mountains more interesting and varied.
- Finally, use layers to separate the different elements of your drawing and make adjustments or corrections as needed.
Remember that drawing takes practice and patience, so don’t be discouraged if your first attempt doesn’t turn out exactly as you imagined. Keep experimenting with different brushes, colors, and techniques until you achieve the desired result.
