Hey AI Art Ludites, you hate technology taking your job? Get used to it, it took mine.

It took mine about 25 years ago and it ruined everything I liked about technology.

Technological advancements ruined everything I liked about late 20th century tech jobs. I wanted a tech job, but I liked it under the context of "all you need to understand how anything works is a simple screw driver". Now that was true when everything was analog and even simple digital and I was under the impression as things got more and more complicated, I would just become more smarter to scale with the complexity of the technological infrastructure. I even studied a foreign language in hopes of getting an engineering job in the country that made all the best consumer electronics. A big hint of this country it's not china and at the time they were dominating the consumer electronics space, they made animated TV shows where cool futuristic hardware was the central theme and it really expressed a sense of wonder of what it would be like to live in a world of more ambitious hardware doing more ambitions things and didn't feel the technology was a source of dread, but as a vehicle of ambition.

Realizing I'll never have a job developing off grid friendly multimedia hardware was very soul crushing to me, but we're not going back to that direction for my mental health. Why should the world not progress because it will take away your sense of purpose? Why is it OK for Netflix to kill the market for Holographic Versatile Disks and Blockbuster, but not OK putting porn artists out of work?

    It was always ok to put artists out of work.

    Modern """art""" is not art. Anybody who has a job or works in art is just making soulless corporate shit to feed a machine, and now that the machine is going to throw them away (the natural evolution of capitalism) they're getting pissy about it and it's hilarious. The future is art where 90% of it is done by ai and the remainder is sent to some 3rd worlder to touch up/finish for 5 cents on the hour. Love to see all the seethe around ai.

      I think AI has the potential to make art better. I haven't seen detailed draftsmanship in anime since Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, the Big-O and Outlaw Star in the late 90's.

      Whatever your complaints about AI art, I hate digital paint art worse

        100% this. AI still needs real art to get fed into it for training. So what I believe will happen is that human made works will start to need to justify their existence, and that will be through draftsmanship, skill, whatever may have you. Essentially AI will make good art more valuable and devalue shitty mass produced stuff. You still can't overcome the training limitation.

          Yeah, instead of shitty mass produced stuff, we'll see good mass produced stuff. We'll also see more independent projects. If Makoto Shinkai can make Voices of a Distant Star on a Power Mac G3, imagine what he could have done if he kept the cel painted atmosphere.

    Yeah AI , with no commonsense and no creativity
    Before AI
    To create art you needed one guy
    Now you need 10 devs to make ai Model and then model creates garbage from the Stolen arts from real creators still lacks creativity and bunch pussies think it can replace Artists
    hahaha nice try go and pay your electricity bills and suck the devs wiener so they can make you better models and devs will suck real creators wiener so they can get data for their Over hyped AI shit ...

    It's still shit. Inconsistent lighting direction. Visible seam where the arm crosses the edge of the planet to the right of the image. Bizarre stretching artifacts on the planet texture. Planet extents into space at the armpit. Inexplicable purple glow in the pleat of the skirt. Asymmetrical ear height. Pleat in the cape turns into lens flare. Inconsistent lens flares. Ugly embroidery of the logo. Physically impossible shadow on the logo. Inexplicable caustics on the collar.

    I'll stop now but you get the point.

    Anon,AI is cool and all,but it's simply not at a stage where it can be viable ,the speed of improvement is great,but still very early ,it's as if Benz made the first ever car in 1885 and declared we've peaked and horses need to move over.
