AI Policy

I need to solidify my stance on AI created artwork. I would love your opinion, but here is mine for now. I have considered it long though, so I don’t think I will change substantially.

It seems a few of my competition is starting to chart and offer up AI created artwork as part of their product line. I will NOT be doing that. I support artwork and artists. I will try to maintain my site to offer authentic artwork created by artists and not AI. I will continue to pay the commissions because it’s valid work that I cannot do. Art and artists are both amazing. I will always support that medium.

On the side though, I also realize that AI and AI artwork is not going away. Therefore, I will chart AI created images as custom pieces. This also includes the pieces of AI art charted by my competition because AI art is unable to be copyrighted. It’s all legal as of now.
