Business Requirements
1. Develop a user-friendly and lightweight AI tool that seamlessly integrates with the art generation process. The tool should provide a simple and intuitive interface that keeps users informed about the ongoing creation process. Given the early stages of the bot, it is crucial to accommodate potential errors or slow load times while maintaining a high level of usability.

2. Implement functionality that enables users to choose from multiple options for the generated art, including saving the artwork, obtaining licenses for commercial use, or purchasing a printed version. The tool should provide a seamless flow for users to select their desired choice and facilitate the corresponding actions effectively.

3. Incorporate a feature that allows users to easily reference and access previously generated and saved artwork. The tool should provide a convenient and organized way for users to browse, search, and retrieve their previously created pieces, ensuring they can efficiently manage and utilize their art collection.
The current challenge is to create a user interface that aligns with the requirements of ARTemis, an AI art robot, in order to facilitate the development of intricate graphical scenes targeted towards fantasy creationists. The primary objectives are to design a lightweight and efficient interface that minimizes resource consumption and maximizes performance, while ensuring seamless usability for users engaging with the application. Additionally, the interface should provide a streamlined process for purchasing and utilizing the generated artwork within the fantasy creationist community.
ARTemis will be designed with a streamlined and intuitive interface, catering to professional users and eliminating unnecessary pages and prompts. A soft, dark color scheme will enhance visual comfort, allowing art styles and designs to take center stage during the creation process. Clear and self-explanatory options will enable users to license, save, and share artwork, with a re-generate feature facilitating quick iterations. The solution prioritizes efficiency, simplicity, and user-centric design, ensuring a captivating experience for fantasy creationists utilizing ARTemis.
