ITT: I would like to discuss the issues of using AI for creative work as someone who has done graphic design, digital illustration, and 2D digital animation instead of blindly praising or blindly hating on it.
>1. Lack of specificity
Meaningful scenes need to be very specific. Everything from the angle to what the characters are doing to the way their fingers are positioned. I can't get this with AI. This is a problem for everything from a simple landscape scene to some insane furry vore art.
>2. AI can't remember the things I make
If I get an AI to make me a really cool pokemon, I can't do anything with that. I can't tell the AI to put that exact pokemon on a background or make it fight with another pokemon I made.
>3. AI can't really do character sheets
Yes, I've seen character sheets AI have made and the hair is always fucked. The clothes are never right. This is a massive challenge for anyone working in animation or concept art
>4. AI can't keep the style specific
Massive problem for all artists. If you have a comic made with AI, good luck keeping the style cohesive.
>5. AI can't generate anything in a workable format
If you like an illustration an AI makes and want to edit it yourself by manipulating the lines and colors... tough luck. Editing a single layer on photoshop is all you're going to get. No vectors or anything for you.
For one-off stuff, stock art of landscapes, and maybe designs of basic objects to reference it's nice. But for building projects, comics, sequences, it's not very useful unless you're willing to make so many compromises and limit your workflow around it.
