Every day I hear about AI generated images fears. The more I slowly die. From hearing the same thing over and over agian
First of of I wouldnt worry so much about it. Cus
A) copy right wise AI art is sketchy at best, and legal nightmare at worst. Alot of these AI compnaies are pretty much liars on how thier shit generated. Laws take a while to catch up, but I feel in a few years we'll be seeing "NO AI art" on alot of diffrent art sites
B) Its not easy to draw in the same way its not easy to be a photographer, but rando's with google images and photoshop are not putting putting photographers out of business or even smart phones. Vocaloid have not replaced singers or musicans
C) That isnt anything new, Lazu comics and some tapas premiums are on a pay as you go model. Alot of comics are patreon exclusives. That idea is not new, in fact alot of comics do that.
D) No would not fix the main issue period, cus people read free to read comics to get a free to read story. ALot of digital and traditional artists can work on them just fine. Why in god's name would I waste cash on AI when I can learn for free and not worry about copy right and get a pic EXCATLy as I want and not spin the ai art carnival wheel for something close enough.
E) I feel its best artist just ignore the tech space and just keep going cus like it all stupid. Alot people like to praise a shiny new thing before getting bored or frustrated and leave.
