Every line you see here represents a human experience.
Nothing was generated by AI.
Each cross-hatched section was done by hand.
What is your opinion about the “AI trend” that’s everywhere these days?
I like the iamges created by AI.
The one thing I do miss though is “the process.”
The AI drawings are often completed in seconds.
When a human creates something, the process is as important, if not more so, than the end-product.
The huge success of so many online tutorials bear testimony to the fact that people want to see a process.
Even if AI simulates that, it won’t transcend the authenticity associated with human creativity.
Oh, and of course, human creativity is flawed. It has to be.
That’s the whole point of Wabi-Sabi.
Go research the fascinating world of Japanese aesthetics.
At least I can acknowledge my drawings are flawed – That’s one sure sign it wasn’t created by AI!

Regarding AI, remember first to cherish your skill with line. All AI can do is crib from the millions of images on the Internet (probably including yours) and merge them into something else, triggered by a prompt. AI images can be fascinating, and I do like them myself, but it’s we who provide the fascination by projecting ourselves into the image. What AI does is not original or creative. It’s a computation.
On the personal level, our images are deeply satisfying in their execution and completion, while the AI gains nothing because it’s not alive. It seeks no meaning through art, gains no quiet satisfaction from doodles. I also think you’re you’re being overly critical of your skills – I see no flaws in your drawings. For flaws, you should see some of the awkward figure drawings I produce.
Thanks for the motivating words Michael, and some interesting thoughts about AI.
I’m on board with what you are saying!
I’ve always been (overly) critical of my own stuff. Once done, and posted, I sometimes change it. Even after the fact.
On the other hand, I suppose it promotes growth? Pushing limits?
