real talk: "art" AI produces mass-produced publication style images which is what i'm mostly sure is the goal. so you might see the flat and lifeless stock painting at the top of a NYT article become AI generated more often but for custom artwork that needs to be done with clearly defined specifics, AI isn't going to become much of a threat to artists
also, the reason these AI art bots produce digital painting style images is because it's much easier to smoosh data together and dither out the borders of elements to create that soft brush look than to produce illustrations with bold and well defined lineart
so, you won't see much comic or manga-esque stuff coming out of AI artbots. and if you do, it's gonna look hella wonky
