Inspired by the incredible work I saw from @blockheim here, I am launching an AI art competition!
The prizes: three winners will get $2,000 USD each. I’ve been going deep on AI-generated art, my mind is blown, and I want to feed the creative fire.
No purchase of any kind is required. Here are the deadlines and rules…
Wizard – 345, 436
Berserker – 289, 336
Cleric – 367, 343
High Elf – 171, 237
Forest Elf – 487, 176, 40
Master of Blades – 493, 100
Shaman – 133, 144
Pirate – 259, 115
If you’d like higher-res images, as well as preserved aspect ratio, you can use cockpunch.com/pfp.
[Update: The winners have been announced.]

I’m disappointed that Tim would throw more fuel on the AI-art fire. Yes, it’s very cool and will reduce barriers to entry, however, it’s hard to imagine this won’t ultimately increase homogeneity. Are we sure we want to make it even harder to be an artist?
Harder?? How does opening the door to anyone and everyone make it “harder to be an artist”. Harder to make a living at it maybe, but let’s be honest. If making money is your priority, “artist” was already a poor career choice…
The only constant things is change. Artists and art is changing. That’s all.
Maybe the AI should be viewed as a new style artists should adopt instead of fight. The words used are the new paint or photoshop tool,the AI is the canvas that helps you capture it.
Re: Tech shortcuts I’m using daily
To paste without any formatting, use Command + Shift + V (Windows: Ctrl + Shift + V) instead of Command+V (Windows: Ctrl + V). Saves the step of highlighting + clicking “remove formatting”!
I don’t think anybody, including you Tim understand how massive cockpunch is going to be. Excited to be a small part of it!
This is awesome!
