not him, but the right pic is technically much better (anatomy, and proportions). Face on the right is undeniably more accurate and appealing. But the artist lost the soul in the lineart especially.

>> No.6135614

September one seems lazy, face lacks the emotion from the january one, shading is also a lot less detailed, and no BG makes the january one better, although i can tell you improved, it's just uninspired although i would be too considering it's the same picture on the same year.

True it is tricky, but I couldn't find any drawing I could show besides that one. Plus that anime drawing is a copy I tried hard to do, so for me it is a lot of progress.

I have met this fork in the road. I'm a cs student who will soon be looking for work, and feel I might enoy just creating filters for photographs and videos and such. When I'm at my best I like to do photography and music production, and always wanted to create some videos for them. Today I was checking out some artistic filters that convert photos to fanous artist styles, and felt that's good enough for me, especially if I can find or make a filter with more granular controls.

I'm not sure of the best route forward; trying to develop any new skill will eat into other things, so personally I feel I'm best served by doubling down on what I already know. Not sure why I'm posting af this point I guess, but I have been thinking about reworking through keys to drawing book just to get thiughts out of ny head easier. I should probably just do it instead posting

Honestly, the only people I could see it replacing are photobashers, or very, VERY generic artists that create a lot of incredibly samey stuff, *at best*. Or those people would use the AI to do their shit for them.
The thing about a neural network like DALL-E is that they're good to train at doing specific things with limited rulesets, but for something so general and with such a nearly infinitely broad range of rules (and rules breaking rules breaking rules) to the point that the existence of rules are basically nebulous guidelines, as art and design is, it would legitimately have to become a true general intelligence (or in other words, achieve sentience and sapience) to be able to create in the same capacity as a human can. It can't create at all, in fact, it can only mash together preexisting data it's already been trained on. The thing about art is that art has a voice, the voice of another being speaking its intent and feeling and personality to you through the things it creates. An AI can only splice together voice recordings semi-randomly and play them back at you.
Asking a neural net to replace an artist would be nearly as difficult as asking it to live in the real world as a human being would. There are simply too many parameters, too many variables to account for.

AI will replace most of us someday, who cares. I personally tripled the female unemployment rate in some areas of the third world by making robots.

But you'll still get jobs, people want to hire specific artists for the prestige of it and weird parasocial relationships. If the field was that soulless we'd just have drawing farms in Vietnam with two hundred dudes hunched over cheap tablets in a basement drawing your commissions and photobashing concept art all day the same way Korean slaves do pretty much every animation since the 90s.

Plus I doubt the boomers in charge can tard wrangle the AI into drawing the very specific thing they want, we're talking about people who need help using PowerPoint.

This thread is dedicated to master studies, where you copy artwork you admire as a form of study. They are the quickest way to improve and learn about any fundamental you are having problems with. If you need to work on your hands, copy hands from other artists, and if you're having trouble with rendering, make careful studies of paintings with lighting you admire. Studies can be quick or long. You can even copy anatomy books like Bridgman, Morpho, and Hogarth. The type of studies you want to do depend on your personal goals and the types of problems you are grappling with.

Artists of all levels are welcome. Critiques and redlines are encouraged.

In art school I remember having classmates that painted like this, one thing I noticed about them is they barely ever paid attention to the teacher's advice or skipped class a lot, they always tried to do the flashy shit first and at some point you gotta question yourself if giving them any advice is worth the effort, they never improved, at most they learned about photobashing and using overlay and multiply but it didn't help them at all.
