Doesn't they say the same thing about photography when it was emerging? ;)
Agreed. This is just depressing and is a detriment to society. If this keeps advancing at its current rate, good art will be so trivial to generate that it won't be special anymore. Art will slowly morph into a banal distraction, with creating an original piece being as easy as applying an Instagram filter. The role of the human artist will change from a craftsperson to someone who picks a bunch of parameters, gives it to the AI, and chooses the best output. This type of technology is a threat to the very existence of art as a craft, will completely devalue artwork, and will make the journey of training to become an artist obsolete. I hate these researchers for what they're doing to a field that I love.
I disagree. There will always be demand for real artists. Like any other digital software, this is just a tool with the possibility to help artists create compelling worlds faster and add realism that would otherwise have taken days to make using other methods. As a 3D character artist, I would love to use this to create quick backdrops to place my characters in to enhance final renders.
Variety reported that Andrew Cosby will write and showrun the upcoming show for Netflix.
The creator went to twitter to say that he’s in the final stages of negotiations about the Diablo animated show, co-produced by Activision Blizzard and Netflix. However, the tweet was later deleted. Maybe negotiations weren’t that final after all.
We have no idea what’s the show is going to be about. No details of the story, or the animation style were revealed. We do know that Andrew Cosby works on the new reboot of Hellboy, so he definitely knows something about hellish creatures.
It was reported earlier that Netflix was also making a show based on the Witcher series of video games.
