A circle, a box, some cylinders, a shaded rectangle going from light to dark …
Simple things make up more complex things. When you’re comfortable with the simple things, try some apples, a pencil, a peanut, a TV controller …
Add 4 cylinders to an apple, you’re just an peanut short of a pony.

Hey, hope you’re still not sick of AI problems.
I’ve been vocal about using AI in my art but I’ve seized to put actual bits of AI-generated imagery in my artworks, therefore stopped to tag my art AI-assisted. But I still reference AI imagery while drawing because sometimes it’s easier to ask AI for a good reference image than to google refs for hours. Referencing means looking at several images and studying certain aspects of them in order to improve your own piece, it’s not tracing or colour picking. Yet, because I look at lots of AI art specifically, my art sometimes feels like it’s generated.
I saw a couple of anon comments under my recently uploaded sketch (explicit art warning⚠️) - https://derpibooru.org/images/3248373#comment_10747149

Not sure how to feel about them. On one side, I’ve heard that there are people trying to spark AI drama on Derpi again and it’s better to ignore or delete such comments. On the other side, while the picture is fully drawn by hand, I did reference AI there and I know that the background looks like most of Purplesmart stuff so I know where they’re coming from.
Even though I feel no shame incorporating AI in my workflow, the connotations of my art looking like it’s fully genned are quite negative and it’s hurtful.
Should I report such comments as derailing conversation or something?
Should I put “AI assisted” under artwork that has zero AI-generated pixels but is still inspired by AI? It’s just weird to do so, kinda implies that I should also use “photography assisted” and “other people’s art assisted” since I borrow from those, too

Please report; the obnoxiousness of “IS THIS AI?” comments, including on stuff that’s obtusely obviously not, gives me eye twitches. While some comments won’t be deleted outright, it lets staff track of someone’s intentionally being a toad trying to start shit, or is just worth chiding.
As for if an image referencing or inspired by AI should be AI assisted, no, not any more than an image that used a 3D model should be tagged 3D or one using a photo model tagged IRL.

The heart and the sinuses.
The heart for its incredibly stupid blood supply solution – One artery gets blocked? Your heart’s fucked unless you get very prompt medical aid.
And the sinuses cuz they’re so large and filter most air we breath, but utterly lacking in proper defensive mechanisms, often leading to inflammation and infections…

I used to think I was pretty much a pervert. Then I started volunteering here, and realized I might actually be a bit of a prude.
