AI art looks great, really great, granted of course, that there are no hands or extra limbs involved.
AI has gone through some impressive changes and I hold nothing but admiration for that, honestly. But AI "artists"? you can call yourself an artist just because you've typed some prompts on your computer? It feels a little (really) annoying honestly, since us artists work our asses off to earn the title and learn the trade. What's more frustrating is that because AI art looks so good, it attracts a lot of attention. I was just on Deviantart and I saw this AI art piece. I got curious so I checked the comments and everyone thinks that the person who posted the piece actually made it, even though it's tagged as AI. It feels kind of lame to be this rewarded for a minimum of effort. Yes, I am envious, because I personally spend days working on my artworks, and I get little to no recognition, which I think is a common occurrence for a lot of us. And for those artists who have an active fanbase I feel nothing but respect and admiration for you, because you worked hard for it and you earned it. What I am envious of are those people who call themselves "artists" when their computers did all the work for them, and they even claim credit for it with so much audacity.
Do you guys agree with me or am I misunderstanding something? If so, please do correct me. and if not, and you agree, hop in the hate bandwagon
