>>3646116>Trad cucks seem to be eternally mad that their mediums are dieing..
I kind of see it as entering a new era where it'll be still be preferred and more highly valued for probably the rest of our lifetimes. Half of art "appreciation" is just circlejerking about the process. Digital is fantastic for industrial applications but there'll still always be a market for tradfag shit.
Like Van Gogh was painting his memes at the same time that the art world was freaking out about cameras. Everyone thought that cameras and industrialization was going to fundamentally kill the "fine arts." And while it did lead to abstract and non-objective and all kinds of other desperate shit, traditional art still always had a market. As technology improves people start being more drawn to the "primitive" forms that focus on emotions and ideas over execution. There will always be applications for 2d digital too, it'll just end up being mostly industrial with a side schism of feels shit. >time to bite down hard on the muzzle.
Oh yeah I was doing digital shit for most of my 20s. I got into acrylic meme painting mostly because it was novel and different. Like it's a passive acknowledgment that the internet/digital revolution is changing everything, and an active subversion of it. I'm translating internet memes to a traditional medium "for historical preservation" under the assumption that we're essentially entering another dark age of media. Once all this technology is outdated most of this shit will be lost like tears in rain. All that digital shit will be saved on hard drives and in various clouds that will eventually no longer be backwards compatible, and after a few generations are gone nobody will even think to bother looking up that shit.
Physical media will likely prevail on a long enough timeframe, because it'll be the primary evidence that we even have of this era.
