I want to be the character everyone always talks about but you never see. 🤣
Hahahaha, we already have one Banes LOL!
I think I know my main issue with AI “art” created by most non-artists: The lack of intention
That is MASSIVE for me personally. When I create everything is there for a reason, everything took thought.
Imagery created without intent is actually revolting to me. I find it vile and disgusting, because art is about communication. And that is what prompted AI is delivering: It gives you the equivalent of a bunch of generic cliches which you don't have any specific control over.
It reminds of when I was a really young kid doing art in school… preschool and grade 1. Some kids would draw the usual flowers, stick figure pictures of their “parents” or houses with square windows, and get lots of praise because it was generic and expected and the flowers would have nice colours. I found that so frustrating because I'd be drawing pictures of actual things with meaning to convey about what they were, rather than just reproducing a bunch of expected cliches. XD
(Though I didn't think of it in those terms!)It wasn't till about grade 3 when it finally clicked-
The class had all seen a dead beached whale on the shore together and the teacher asked us to draw it. My picture and one by this girl who was popular in class were both chosen as the best ones.
She was a nasty bully so I was perturbed that she got chosen along with me. Her's was an expected, colourful picture, all done on the one plane with the typical hierarchical perspective (more important things are big, less important are smaller), all figures from front on only. Mine was a complex picture that showed the actual scene of the whale being moved by the front end loader, showing where the ocean was in relation to the class etc. using rough one point perspective.
The best part was that the teacher showed both pictures to the entire class and said of the girl's: “This picture is good for a little child's drawing.”
Then held up mine and said: “But THIS is good for an adult. This was how it really looked, it's more like a photo.”
The fact that she was a bully made that such a sweet moment. The “little child” remark really cut her.
