Hello, I am an AI artist, programmer, and advocate of AI technology.
Ive been in content creation most of my life, close to two decades experience with photoshop, blender and poser. AI tools are new though, and i have found them a pathway into doing very cool things since about september 2022
I've found a broad variety of applications and creative uses for AI art. I make fanart for my favourite franchises, art for videogame mods, mood pieces in times of strong emotion, silly whimsical stream-of-consciousness style stuff, and various experiments with new technology
My works can be divided into two broad categories:
The pure AI pieces, which are the result of a prompt, usually with minor or no editing afterwards
and the Serious Works, that are long multi-part pieces where AIs are used as a base and refinement, alongside heavy usage of photoshop. All of the latter can be found in my Proudest Works gallery. Many of these take multiple days or even weeks of dedicated work, this isnt just pushing a button to make a pretty picture
Comments are always welcome. I will try my best to respond, so please leave your thoughts. I'm open to discussion and debate about all manner of subjects, but please be civil.
Its important for me to have artistic merit in my works. The use of an AI cheapens beauty, I know this. So I try to make each piece with a purpose. To tell a story, make people laugh, inspire a mood, make an artistic or philosophical statement, or commemorate a person/thing that i loved. For things that don't have any meaning to me, I use my Freakshow gallery so as not to spam public spaces
I use the gallery tab to categorise works into groups, please look there!
My subjects are varied. I do a lot of warhammer stuff and fanart for a few other universes, some memes, lots of pretty artistic landscape scenes without characters, a few occasional wierd things
Sometimes i let my imagination run wild, other times i go in with a set plan. I do a little of everything!
Everything I post is my own work, though many things use characters and themes from other IPs.
I am an aspiring game developer and the reason I originally got into AI art was to make characters, places, and things for those future games. I still strive towards this goal, and I have created a gallery especially for those images
Everything in that gallery is 100% original, and i like to write little bits of lore for them, although i'm not a great writer. I am interested in collaborating with a writer, focusing on fantasy to help with the stuff above
If you like my work, leave a comment! Critique is especially welcome, i have a lot of control and can fix mistakes the AI made if you guys help me find them
If you wonder about my account age, I originally signed up here just as a normal user, to look at pictures and follow people. It's only this year i've started creating content
I just came back after a decade not active due to work, I've seen art from the evolution of real paint, to digital and now AI. I've work in visual industry for printing and advertisement industry for this long and as a person whom is neutral I don't feel intimidated by AI image at all. People think its easy to generate a specific pretty pic, but they never try to make it themselves. I'm coming back to fulfill my digital drawing hobby and AI reference is amazing. So much more visual information I can absorb in a short amount of time.
I'm running trough AI artist and I'm proud to let you know you are my first watch after my comeback.
I understand some older artist despise AI for a few different reasons, but I can tell them now that base on the market AI generated art VS digital artist is very different. Rarely would the market crash into each other for the same reasons. If they feel like this is end of the world, wait till they find out few years down the road people can extract image from mind trough a device and paste them down to a computer, that would be way more scarier then what AI can do now.
I will most likely be learning to draw digital art and would view AI for their amazing reference capability, once I"m good at drawing I"ll most likely be generating my own AI art and start to learn traditional painting and make exclusive piece for the pure joy of it.
Keep up the good art, I'll be visiting whenever I'm on :)
... Extracting images from the brain? Yea, sure, if you think neuropathways run on magic. How would you translate synapses into imagery? And no, sticking things into your brain is not recommended no matter what an idiot like Elon Musk says. Reason we generally tend to not get invasive with the brain aside from electrodes adhered to the scalp is because one little slip-up results in brain damage or possible cerebral hemorrhage that then leads to nerve cell death and brain damage. The blood-brain barrier is there for a reason.
Let alone the human brain is infinitely more complex from a computer: 80 billion separate nerve cells connecting to billions more from the spine to the body. There isn't just one central spot on the brain where imagination comes from; it's the entire structure working in tandem to create a very specific pathway. Speaking as someone who studied biological psychology for three years.
