Welcome to the TTRPG Art Asset Jam!

Artists wishing to participate in this Jam are encouraged to submit any art assets (old or new) they have made that they think could be useful for indie TTRPG designers, who need artwork for their games.

Motivation and Goals

I was moved to host this jam after seeing quite a few game designers using images in their games which were clearly created using the so-called "AI art generators".
Many people far more eloquent than I have already written or spoken a lot about how these tools - as they function now - are deeply unethical and harmful for human artists, who are already struggling in our current capitalist hell-scape.
Below are two videos on the subject that I strongly recommend watching if you want to learn more. The first is a shorter, more introductory video, the second a longer video essay, but both go over debunking the various awful arguments made in favour of machine generated image tools.
Some Thoughts on "AI Art" - ThoughtSlime
The End of Art: An Argument Against Image AIs - Steven Zapata

The goal of this Jam is therefore to provide a veritable treasure trove  - or at the very least, decent-sized goodie bag - of art assets for TTRPG designers to use INSTEAD of "AI Art". The Jam therefore seeks to support both artists and indie TTRPG creators.

Requirements

- Any Art Assets you wish to submit must be available under an open license (I suggest the CC BY 4.0) for both personal and commercial use.
- The Art Assets must not contain any hateful or bigoted material which targets marginalised groups on the basis of appearance, skin colour, disability, sex, gender identity, nationality, ethnicity, faith (or lack thereof), or species. 
- Obviously, the Art Assets must not be made using machine learning tools.

I look forward to seeing your submissions!
