The checkmark is making fun of Elon Musk's tomfoolery re: Twitter. The drama appears to be the culmination of months of stupid that may be kinda subsiding now. Congrats on the kitty! And yay books! Welcome back! :D

i love these styles honestly and it's funny how zooms (well, i'm a zoom zoom myself) can't replicate it because it had way more effort put into. you can't replicate look of traditional works done with colored pencils in digital and modern software won't have that crunch and imperfections of like old painter versions or photoshop

i mess myself with old tablets and software and it shown me how more difficult things were back then. but this gave this era so much of vibe and people dared to be more creative and take risks, it was more human honestly. they had fun!

Training AI to create art that isn't hyperrealism or anime is something I didn't consider for some reason, perhaps because it's less likely to amass clout or money.

...art styles nowadays that were influenced from a greater subculture or movement. Not to say that people nowadays don't have unique styles or clever work, but I miss when you could truly *tell* what era art came from. The difference between 2018-current day art and everything before that feels so stark to me.

@matfloor & @futurehalf I think it's something that was kinda like of an era. I think in a decade or two we will look back at zoomie art fondly and it's not a bad thing. its just that modern art is more "solved" with so many tutorials and how refined the programs are. I think it would be an interesting experiment and I will try to post them with credit to the artists and links to the original art.
