AI Art Imposter is a drawing party game that allows AI to draw illustrations to find outs of friends.

In this work, the player first prepares an exhibition illustration as an artist. For AI, use the functions in the game to give instructions in sentences and generate illustrations. AI will show some candidates according to the instructions, so one of them will be selected as an illustration for exhibition.
Next, the artists show each illustration they have prepared and guess who is a fake artist who does not know the theme. When everyone showed off two illustrations, we voted for players who think they are fake artists. If a fake artist is voted, the artists who know the theme will win.
