Yes, she mistook him for someone else, another writer.

YouTube has been recommending random videos from all genres recently, often with only 1 to 15 views each. It just gave me this one. It's a Swing / Jazz song called "Hikikomori" but looking at the description…

>This track has been either partially or entirely generated using Artificial Intelligence tools.

You are welcome to incorporate this music into your projects, videos, podcasts, or any other creative work without a concern over copyright infringement.

The AI generation part is one thing. The vocals become apparent in their synthetic nature about halfway through the song, but how much of the instrumental composition is done by AI? Does the author consider VSTs and other synths to be "ai"? Why not just use a Vocaloid or Voiceroid singer? The other weird thing is the proclamation of being a 'forward-thinking' company. It's ominously robotic in its appeals. It's as if the entire thing was artificially generated.


I'm a failed cartoonist and pretty used to being rejected by editors and publishers but today takes the cake. I got into contact with an editor a couple days ago and she refused to even look at my work. Usually they'll accept your pages and never contact you again or tell you it's not what they're looking for. It's the first time I was barred from even showing my stuff to someone. They probably looked my name up and upon realizing I have no social media presence whatsoever didn't even bother with the actual work. Not to toot my own horn but at least visually my stuff is better than 90% of the alternative comics they print. Feels pretty miserable to not even get the chance of having your material rejected.


Sounds like job hunting only in this case the rejection is even more personal, which sucks.

Have you tried going independent and building a following that way?
Apparently a lot of cartoonist are turning to twitter and webtoons but I don't understand how they monitizes.
I know most older school cartoonist have their own websites too, but the way the web is now such sites probably get almost no traffic.

I don't really have any real advice, at least none from experience.

I just wish you luck and hope someone that matters sees value in your craft.


Not that poster, but it's clear as crystal it can't be monetized that way. You can't have a twitter or social media following without being published first. It's a catch 22.

And if you don't get published by someone who already has lots of capital, your stuff decays and nobody sees it except you.


Send your comic to every Ethernet mail direction in the world, print it and mail it to every direction in the world, send it to every publisher in the world, draw a single page on a bunch of paper sheets and let the wind blow it away, transmit it as a signal to be picked up by any receiver, send it as a message to every chat platform


There is so much competition in the modern world that this would still likely yield zero results and a lot of listings on spam filters.

Hell, in a year or two they can prompt an AI to make a short cartoon on any subject with unique art styles in 5 seconds.


>Hell, in a year or two they can prompt an AI

You say this about everything

I've shared my stuff on social media for years without any actual benefit so I took it all down and began sending stuff to publishers. Oh well. Here's a page for the story I was trying to show the editor who told me to not even bother sending in. It's about a guy going LDAR but then a strange alien entity shows up in his room.


Somehow I'm starting to feel whole again.
Yeah, my cynicism still persists, but just the absence of pressured pretense is comforting. ^^

Especially knowing I'm not one of a kind in the best way possible. ^^

Don't even need to wait 2 years. The algos can already do it today.

Today was a highly bittersweet day for me, so I did this to cheer myself up if not help keep me away from the dreaded deppression crawl thread. :D


The grand master wizard's dragon has 4 fingers on one claw and 3 on the other.

I always wondered why AI always does weird stuff to fingers.
I think it will be a few years before the finger artifacts go away.


>no social media presence whatsoever
That's probably the problem, they have no way of gauging the popularity of your comics or your fanbase. At least have a twatter account where you post your comics, you don't even need to engage with the comments, just post your work so it gets views. Even Japanese mangaka have social media these days in order to advertise their work.


>The pro-AI art wizard doesn't have a wand or staff, rather just a normal stick
Excellent self-critique from AI

I did have a twitter for 3 years or so and in that time I amassed around 250 followers, about 30 of them obvious bots and who knows how many fake accounts. It's quite a task to churn out content to keep up with your social media shit and like I said I never saw any quantifiable return for it. It feels like chasing a ghost, it's a very elusive process. You get 1k likes in one picture and none in another. Producing content for social media is a scam if you ask me, it's just yet another way to work for free.

AI is completely irrelevant. Cartooning in this day and age is a personality cult. People purchasing lots of comics are buying it because they like the author (the person, not the work) or believe in whatever they think the author stands for. The quality of the artwork is also mostly irrelevant. Many cartoonists nowadays spend more time in podcasts and talking garbage at snippet interviews on instagram than actually producing content. I've also noticed they got considerably more attractive over the years. There's no way a clunker like Wally Wood would've made it today. In fact many of those older guys are now cancelled for being toxic or whatever.


potted plants are really useful if you happen to be a hikki who can't come out of your room for a while because of people in the house. Like a piss jug but you don't need to empty it and it makes zero sound while pissing.

I had really intense and vivid dreams last night. It was great. Probably had something to do with the easter candy I ate. My shit smelled foul today. I really wish I could dream like that every night.

I dunno.
I guess knowing stuff like Mr. Imaishi having taken a pay cut for his art is what pushes me forward in times like these.

That and, of course, memes from a era when my brain could handle dopamine like a walk in the park. ^^


>he did it yet again
Since no one else can be bothered to do it, I will.

Rule 8: stop it.


Whoops, forgot about rule 11. Anyway, since it's the crawl thread on /lounge/, I won't report it this time. Mods can remove my posts if they wish.


We won fellow volcels


It pains me to delete my porn


>doesnt get you in trouble/harms you
Masturbating at all does physical damage to the brain. Adding stress responses to extreme fetish material is only going to increase the ill effects of cumming.

Its always the middle


>I did it again

Do what? Be an optimist?
I'd love to be more negative but the depression crawl thread is textbook counterproductive.

As for the rules:
>8.Do not sign your posts with a name, avatar, signature, or any variations thereof.
I didnt know I created Studio Trigger/art student owl, SWEET!

>11.If a post violates a rule, report it. Do not respond to the post or announce your objection.

Well at least you're self aware, ya megalomaniac you :D

But hey, if I DO get banned, at least it'll be for something honest rather than because I was framed (I'm not gonna provide the image cause I'm more mature than that).


My AG album should get here today.:D


Power went out again. I try to post here like normal but I always forget I am banned because of some shitposter in my area who has the same mobile IP. Makes me realize how much I rely on this place for social interaction. Even just going a day or two without being able to post sucks. It will suck when this site inevitably goes down forever.


My range is banned too. God dammit.


Got ketchup on my keyboard.
Had to take the keys off to properly clean it. Such a pain.
I need to stop eating while sitting at the computer.


next time you ever get any of your electronics wet, just wash it and let it dry

as long as it doesnt have any battery or capacitors storing power the water will just clean it


I can only hope the USA is all right rn.
I don't live in it, nor an English speaking country.

And even then I could hear someone yelling "F*** U!" from four to five blocks away a few weeks ago.



Mechanical keyboards don't react to being wet well.


Mechanical keyboards are an over-engineered joke


Interesting I realized the whole house was shaking a while back and I figured it must be a mild earthquake and it turns out that it was. We don't usually get those around here.


Since you already went to the effort of signing your posts, why bother to pretend now? Your text wall speaks for itself.


They really aren't.


Speaking of over-engineered, has anyone here seen the new wave of CPU coolers that have embedded LCDs? You can even play videos on them. Just crazy. And of course, with RGB.

Although they can be functional in a display piece sort of way. But they're definitely not for me


>has anyone here seen the new wave of CPU coolers that have embedded LCDs?
No actually. Totally new to me.
Where would they even sell those?
Got pictures?


I have a video, this is from Corsair


The fuck is that bootleg scam site you tried sending me to.

I don't trust it.


yet you trust youtube, that's ironic because you have it backwards


I went outside once


Time to test out some AIs!


Ones you wrote?


I don't know how many times I have to post this…but anyway:
Don't tell me you're too afraid to even visit a Github link?
