does photobashing make you a worse artist?

>> No.6848599

It can. The best photobashers are artists who got good at all the fundies first.

>> No.6849617

There is something about Photobash that just looks so genetic and trashy, like its mass produced garbage
I lack the verbal IQ to describe the feeling with precision, but I don't remember a single Photobash piece of art, its like its not memorable at all.

>> No.6849648

It does, because it robs you of gesture, composition, appeal.
Your photobashing is only as good as your base pic, so you basically have a self imposed quality ceiling.
It's like ceramic paintings
It's an ok thing to do and there's a market for it, but yes, it does make you a worse (certainly more limited) artist

It's soulless. It was ai-slop before ai-slop existed.

>> No.6849794

Photobashing is basically AI art done by hand.
Fucking retarded.

>> No.6849815

It is a tool and it depends on your creativity and work to give it an artistic sense, Also do not forget that this technique is used for conceptual artists who need to finish their work quickly and with high quality. Find the artist: Nekro (It is not exactly the same technique but it shares similarities). He made covers for blasphemus and some elden ring illustrations.

Let's stop demonizing tools, humans are the ones who, with their work and artistic sense, will give them meaning and no, just writing prompts is not using AI correctly And it doesn't make you an artist.

Photobashing is a shortcut for people trying to meet deadlines and when you cut such huge corners your end result is a pile of shit.

>> No.6849892

if you use digital for anything, its not art.

Wow, a balanced opinion. In the first post.

That's more like it.

>but I don't remember a single Photobash piece of art
Linda Bergkvist had some pretty memorable pieces. but we didn't know they were photobashed at the time.

>> No.6851943

I think photobashing makes a piece less impressive, gives it less soul, and usually limits you to a more realistic style. However, it's pretty much impossible to be competitive as a concept artist or visdev artist without doing it, so I don't blame anyone for it.

What is photo bashing?

>> No.6852144

Feng Zhu ruined the industry when he normalized it and made it seem it was acceptable to do by calling it a "plate", no it's just a photo.

>> No.6852180

Obviously, yes.

>> No.6852259

I wonder how much more diverse and interesting AAA games and movies would have looked had he not done that. If photorealism was sorta off the table...

Kinda retarded. I cringe at your cringe.

>does photobashing make you a worse artist?
the process of photo bashing rips your own unique style and intent out of the work that's why all pieces produced with this technique tends to look like homogenized AI tier slop it's similar problem to using a base in that respect.

>> No.6852981

I'd be curious to see your "art" in that case. To see your skill level. But you won't. So I'm just gona assume you're mid if anything. I use both mediums btw. Have been for a long time. Regardless you're entitled to your meritless opinion.

>> No.6853035

NTA but certainly digital represents less of an artistic acheivement. Similarily a castle built in blender holds less artistic value than a real life equivalent. A music piece made in ableton less than an actual orchestral recording.
In my view digital art is only fully valid when it is transparently so, ie pixel art. Digital art that mimics tradiditional art will always be fraudulent on some level. An inferior synthetic approximation of a potential physical equivalent.

>> No.6853870

give a bricklayer blender and see how he does

give a trad artist a tablet, it come out same and vice versa

bad analogy
