I am firmly convinced the world is entering a new Age of Enlightenment. Call it Renaissance 2.0. It’s going to be very painful to get there. Some people will not want the world to change.
We will be able to understand each other more easily. New tools are being developed all the time.
What dose that mean for us as digital artists?
It’s a bit of a double edge sword:
The new tools will make creating art much easier to make!
Some people in charge will see this as you being able to deliver art faster or make more art, aka, more work.
If the person in charge understands you as an artist, new tools simply mean that you’ll be able to do your work better.
For artists, AI is not to be feared. It’s, currently, a tool. Like a paint brush or a pencil. AI is written by humans, and humans are limited. It can’t be creative. Artists will ALWAYS be creative. That is something AI can’t touch.
I’ve played with some image making AI tools. It’s really bloody tough! The final result is only as good as the input from a human. Even then, I had to go in and adjust the final to my specs.
I don’t think that the “machine overlords” will take over creativity. Artist will remain for sure.
We are made for creation 😬🖌️
