Wherein we discuss the dangers of AI Art tools and potential benefits
I’m much like your friend that finds it useful for concepts and color pallets- it’s nice to know I’m not alone!
While the average person might not care about AI-created art vs organically-created art (I’m not calling myself human YOU CANT MAKE ME 😋) I do think there will always be a market for us. And I have to agree that it can bring more value over time.
People love the shiny new thing but the pendulum never swings one way- it always swings back. Maybe, just maybe- this will bring a sort of renaissance to the average person’s appreciation and understanding of art. The fact that so many people are talking about this already shows more attention to art as a concept in the general public than I’ve seen in my lifetime (so the last 3 decades or so) and I think that’s something that can benefit artists once the AI art trend feels less shiny.
I appreciate your bright side way of looking at this. I do worry about the future for artists, especially with the knowledge that many (if not most) clients are looking for the cheapest option. Hopefully we’ll be able to evolve with the technology and make it work for us instead of against us.
That’s just weird, lol. Eddie and Chris eating ice-cream made up by an AI. Panic buttons being pressed by artists when this news broke out, and I definitely let out a groan of disappointment. Like you said, and I agree that this can be used as a tool for artists. So non-artists can use it, but they don’t have the basics of drawing at all, they’ll still have to work with an artist. If anything they can show an actual image of what they want created and go from there with the artist. Can’t get rid of us that easily! Ha!
