Now that I know how AI ‘art’ does things, this is my stand on it:
- It’s not really art, lacking a human creator’s direct agency in its making
- Currently, AI art is made using human artists’ work as sample data, without any compensation scheme for those artists; that’s unfair
- I don’t think AI will ever have the depth and ability that human artists can give
Therefore, since I have quite a few artist friends and am getting to know more artists, I’m going to pledge that when I need illustrations, I’ll get them, or some other artist who fulfills my requirements. But humans, not robots.
