(thumbnail art made using DALL-E + outpainting tool 😉)
Hello aliens, this is a quick update on our community rules, specifically regarding AI ART. If you post AI generated art in this community please take a moment to read this post!
I'm sure you are all aware that AI art has exploded in popularity over the last year and the tech has increased exponentially which has caused a lot of controversy. In the past it was usually quite easy to tell what was made by AI and what was "human made" but programs like DALL-E, Stable Diffusion etc. are blurring the line.
We have always explicitly allowed AI generated art to be posted in this community as we believe it is an incredible new tool for artists to explore and integrate into their process. This stance hasn't changed at all but due to the increasingly blurry lines we think it is fair to request transparency. Many curators on HIVE have expressed frustration with not being able to tell how art is made and may cause them to skip a post entirely if they aren't sure.
Alien Art Hivers are a lovely bunch and most of you are already transparent so this hasn't been a big issue to date 👽❤️ None the less we felt it was time to add some clarity and guidance on the topic.
TLDR: If you are posting AI art to this community we recommend making it clear in either the text or title of the post, especially if you are hoping to be included in our community curations. We will not be punishing artists that don't follow this rule, they are just less likely to be curated. The only exception to this would be outright deception, i.e saying the art is 100% hand painted when it is in fact 100% AI art, this will get you muted
