uninspired, going through the final projects from last year for the AI class I’m taking now, half of it looks dead boring
“Zizek Philosopher Chatbot” (I gasp, delighted, and click through)
Intro: “What is the true nature of the Other’s gaze? How
can we hope to reconcile various modes of economical/political
production? What did the poor
nurse say after you suggested more felicitously
Freudian imagery be introduced to the eye exam
in order to motivate your attention? And more importantly,
can a computer algorithm dynamically
generate answers to all of these questions in a simulated
imitation of Slovenian philosopher and film
critic, Slavoj Zizek?”
Just had a moment of !?!?!?!?!?!?! because I was scrolling through my pictures and i clicked the facial recognition to see all of the pictures of myself and while I don’t take a whole lot of selfies I experienced an out-of-body experience because I remembered I was an actual person with a corporeal form and not just a sack of anxiety with dry lips.
I haven’t read a series in quite a long time where I had such a clear, distinct vision of what each and every character looked like. After finishing through PJO earlier this year, I slowly started sketching out everyone I could and editing along the way in order to get them to look as closely as possible to what was in my head. I wasn’t able to cover every single character that’s mentioned, but I’m still really proud of this set! I can’t wait to use it as a reference for more PJO art going forward.
A few months ago, I had the opportunity to commission @xfreischutz to make a card for my Inquisitor, Astraia Lavellan. The final result was more than worth the wait! Frei paid so much attention to details and had creative interpretations of my ideas, managing to take my massive amount of information about my character and distill it down into a wonderful image.
They were a pleasure to work with and I am so glad that I commissioned them.
