I remember distinctly the moment you're talking about. I love Kim Jung-Gi, I have a massive print of his on my wall. When I saw that person promote their AI I think it's the closest I've come to wanting to beat somebody with a branch. Same thing happened to Kevin Conroy when he passed away.

It's just so frustrating. Realizing all the talks KJG did, all the demonstrations, public drawings, etc. failed to reach these people. Failed to inspire them to pick up the pen, failed to get them to try, failed to reach their spirit. They missed the ENTIRE point of his career, so obsessed with the end result they'd rather not even try to get there. Just trying to skip to the very end to have lines on a paper. They say they want to create but have no desire to actually create the thing, they just want a product they can hawk or praise they can steal.

Is it over the top that I go to therapy because of AI? Propably, but few days ago I had a nightmare that someone took my face to wear it as a mask, because this is pretty much how the situation feels like for me, even if you take the monetary part out of the picture. My feathers are more then a bit ruffled, "Weltschmerz" is the word that feels more appropriate for me.

I just hope that there will be a place for us somehow, somewhere in the future. Even if I dont see it in the industry any longer.

It's blows a fuse for me when I see people call these images "Art". It's not art at all and merely an image replication the style of someone elses art. So these pictures generated by A.I are meerly images to me instead of art.
