What is your opinion on AI art? Do you see it as a threat, as a tool or are indifferent towards it? Personally I see it more like cheap entertainment and a tool for making concept art but not real art. Pic related was created using Dall-e 3, you can see it has lots of mistakes and it's boring and stale but I made it in 10 seconds for free. Couldn't get the square pattern in Mado's sweater properly, sadly.

I make my own art, but I frankly don't care if someone feeds it to AI along with thousands of others for it to learn artistic style patterns, because the result is far away from looking like made by me.
To me its no different than a person downloading my art copying it using it as reference, it's not like the AI is tracing or blatantly plagiarizing it like lots of human artists pieces of shit actually do with my art.
People don't need my permission to download and use my art for their own learning so I'm not gonna be mad at a machine for doing the same, humans arguably copy more of your art with the "for reference" excuse than most AI models today having your art among thousands of others to get an average ideal style.
I think the artist hate for AI comes from three fronts:

>They asssume AI traces their artwork or make a collage with all the artists' works and that's not how it works.

>People they admire/their friends say its bad so they say its bad

>They are mad because they spent years of their lives learning a skill just for some loser with no skill to be able to put out art that looks a thousand times better than anything that artist could ever make in a lifetime

With that being said, there are AI models that were developed unethically in the past and simply made collages with people's art, and without enough data from the art pieces to make it unique or transformed, which is a valid reason for artists(not me idc) to be upset about.

AI art is great for memes though, no debate.

I'm fine with AI, been running Stable Diffusion locally and had some fun making AI-generated Monoes. Pic related.


Artists are slow and expensive. Fuck paying hundreds of dollars on a commission with tons of stipulations and other bullshit attached. An AI just as good as a person, would basically be a slave, and slavery was great for slave-owners. So I'm all for it.


Not a fan, gotta be honest. It's a fun toy to play around with, but it struggles with the finer details. I think if you want actually good art instead of just 'good enough', it's probably better to just bite the bullet and learn to draw. It's embarrassing to spend god knows how long sucking until you get good, but it's probably worth it in the long run.

AI Art and AI as a whole are just the beginning of the end of the necessity of work for humans. At an economic level, AI art will likely cause the human-art market to shrink extremely, if not completely. (Consider the fact the majority of art jobs are repetitive work such as animation clean up, in-between frames, small design work and other things that AI is very suited for taking over.) As AI improves, this will only progress and expand into other areas (already has) that will leave most fields that are not the upmost specialized completely AI dominated. As a result, human activity will primarily shift from work/economic focused to recreationally focused, which I think overall is a net positive to humanity, even though the transition from now to that will be very painful.
Overall I'm completely indifferent to AI art because all it means is that art will return to being a primarily recreationally endeavoured skill.

At least where I live, there are fewer and fewer people even thinking about decorating or even celebrating Christmas (not to mention that I heard a few days ago: "Christmas trees are diabolical"). Maybe I'm missing a global news story about Christmas trees being soul-sucking and throat-ripping.

Or that I'm not a child anymore. How unexciting it is to grow up.


Sounds like a crappy place to live

Not sure if this is the right place to post. I'm looking for a specific image that is a comic. I'll describe it:

>Long image with more than 8 or 10 panels

>Western style but not cal-arts
>Two characters: a girl with punk hair in underwear and a bald guy, both are a couple
>No walls of text
>There are predominantly cold colors (blue, purple…)

The story:

>night time, the girl is chill on the bed with her phone

>guy comes home to sleep, he's got a bad day at work
>girl tries to lighten the atmosphere "wanna do sexy things honey?"
>"no, I'm not in the mood"
>girl is shocked for a few panels

You managed to remember way more about this than I did.


Can anyone help me find an illustration of a Catholic schoolgirl tieing her shoes for the day in front of her mirror in her pink room, and in the reflection is a goth version of herself wickedly or righteously smiling at her with goth periphenilia and AR-15 scattered about. There was text saying something along the lines of be yourself.


That's a highly specific request, man.


It's at least a decade-old too.

Man and I forgot I made this thread.

Yes, that's exactly right. It's the exact comic I described. Well done anon, and thank you for your efforts, you have my gratitude. It means a lot to me.
I chose to ask spefically in this imageboard for a certain yet wholesome comic. So take something from that if you will.
>You managed to remember way more about this than I did.
I remember it well because it resonated with me in a big way when I read it nearly a decade ago, that's why I was detailing the comic as much as I could to make things easier.
Again, thank you. You turned my shitty day into a good day.

I been feeling lately like a lot of the interest that normalfags take in Asiatic culture is somewhat disingenuous. In an attempt to appear more, "cultured", people have started moving away from European stuff and focusing on more, "exotic", cultures to seem more well-rounded. To me, it seems like they're forcing themselves to take appear like they've taken an interest in something to put on airs. A lot of what they focus on and glamorize were also at one point mundane, normal parts of life to their original practitioners. And now these people are coming in and treating it like some kind of high art. Even though they supposedly moved away from traditional European traditional culture, they still change their subjects of interest to better fit that mold of treatment. A good example of this is how the Michelin Star guide, which is almost entirely made up of indistinguishable, massively expensive French restaurants, randomly decided to throw in one Dim-Sum place. These people also completely ignore more contemporary Asian culture in favor of an obsolete version of ancient traditions, which have actually been updated for modern times by the people who made those traditions. You don't see these people try to emulate an eighteenth century English tea party. There's just something off-putting to me about the image of a bunch of snobbish, old, white people sitting around in Kimonos and obsessing over all the intricacies of a tea-ceremony in a class they payed to take and attend once a week in between golf games. Is this all just in my head, or does anybody else feel the same way?
There's people who pull far thinner noodles in totally inconspicuous street food just to make a living, but you don't them parading it around to the whole world.

Systems of belief can cause people to do things they wouldn't have done otherwise.
>You're literally the same as modern atheists but without the fedora. You both feed on lies and half truths, have a fetish for slave morality and pathological altruism and believe in universalism.
That both does not accurately describe modern liberalism specifically or is in any way related to my first post. You ran out of things to say pretty quick after you went through your laundry list of talking points. You can't actually address a point directly, you have to always side-step to regurgitate something somebody else already said.
>lies and half truths, have a fetish for slave morality and pathological altruism and believe in universalism.
And you're getting all of that from me thinking that Jews aren't responsible for everything wrong in western society now and Christian culture is more important, relevant, influential and complex than pagan cultures such as the vikings'. Wow.


>Nobody is taught anything about white culture in their formative years

People are taught Christianism is the right religion to follow in most 1st world countries (except for asian 1st countries obviously), people are taught white people are more trustworthy basically everywhere including asian countries and 3rd world shitholes, USA and Europe public schools' teach mostly aspects of white history (check the curriculum of each country if you are curious). I don't know where you live but the majority of people are favorable towards whites except a few niches in big cities and internet. You seem extremely sheltered.


>You seem extremely sheltered.
That's what you can expect from a libertarian anarchist.
