TW AI art generators (I hate them), swearing

As an artist, I’m so fucking sick of so many fucking companies using AI art generators that steal from others’ work without even any permission from artists. Ever since 2023, it feels that everything on the web’s AI this and AI that. My used-to-be-favorite websites started adding AI generators and became greedy and now I hate them more than ever. All of this talk of AI art is pissing me off. It’s actually pretty triggering to even bring up about this because it’s just so immoral, and seeing big companies like Microsoft and Google going even more south is just… 😡

It’s not just human artists struggling. Otherkin (those who don’t fully identify as human non-physically for various reasons (yes, it’s a real and good-faith identity)) artists exist, too such, as I. So I always tend to get very uncomfortable being called a human throughout all of this.

Is our government even doing shit about this??? This is extremely unfair that so many individuals would now rather shit on artists and use and AI art generators than requesting or do commissions to artists. Yes, I know some commissions are expensive (some too expensive, in my opinion), but some do art as a job and that should be respected!

The role of art in my life

I graduated in fine art. I work in an art related job part time so I have time to work on my own art too. I'm not good at sticking to one idea and I am often bouncing around the many possibilities and not monetising any of them. I get intimidated by the work I see online by other artists. Often in the comments it says AI, which I suppose is a relief. My mental health causes me to engage in abstract thought a lot and sometimes I feel I should use this to fuel my imagination. I'm in a place now, where I can be mindful when I need to, but it didn't used to be like that, therefore I have years of dreams and ideas which I think could make good stories and art. Now that I am in a better place I'm realising that I need to put the creativity into practise to make it better but there's always the voice saying I've wasted too much time and im too old now.#Art #creativity #Anxiety #Schizophrenia

Art exchange

Not sure if this is allowed here exactly so admin take it down if it’s prohibited.

I’ve got a new idea to do an art exchange. I pair up with you and make a piece of art for you and you make one for me. (It does not matter how good you are!) Then we send them to each other. The parameters are different for each pair as you discuss what you want or if you want a surprise. Anyway, art is so therapeutic so I thought I’d give it a shot. Thanks, guys! #Art

Pandora’s Jar #Depression #MentalHealth

My sister-in-law got me a sketch journal for Christmas. Which is very thoughtful and I’m really interested in doing it. I am scared though to put my innermost thoughts out on paper. I need to get them out of my head because I will bottle everything inside but I’m afraid for others to see the negative thoughts and self-loathing that is in my heart and soul. I am afraid of what people will say if they see it. However I am more afraid of what will happen if I withhold whats inside. #sketchjournaling #Art #MentalHealth

Astral Plane Cigarette

Based on a dream. I’ve been cig/vape free for over a year now. The cigarette in the dream was silver and said the words astral plane. I used to explore that topic. There was also a quote where I mentioned the word baby. #Schizophrenia #OCD #Art

“What is your question?” #Art #OCD #Schizophrenia

Based on an OBE in 2017. Hope that’s okay to say. Don’t know what else to call the experience. Painted with iPad and Apple Pencil.
