I think people may fail to appreciate the creative tsunami coming as this goes from “Hope you can install a Python toolchain” to “It’s built into an app and you don’t have to understand what it is doing.” t.co/rdQffvDBZR

What do you need to make someone into the anime Santa Claus version of themselves? Five photos, basically anything you’d put on social media will do, and a few minutes on an M1 Mac.

A thing I’m going to try sometime when I get a few hours free: ingest official character art from Wrath of the Righteous, then style transfer myself into a character portrait for the PC. That seems… wild that it is a thing that is not merely technically possible but ~trivial.

“Copyright?” Personal use, transformative use, non-commercial, doesn’t hurt market for original since by necessity they already sold that to me to have the game to run it in, etc etc.

(You’d think a creative marketing team would start making custom character portraits of every e.g. YouTuber they approach to review the game once cost of a custom portrait asymptotically approaches the cost of finding the YouTuber’s email address to send it to them.)
