What up my Peeps!!
Well, as of late I have been commenting alot more and really getting into the DA community thing,
BUT...Theres alot of folks out there that cant seem to take a critique well!? I allways choose my words carefully and really examine the artists gallery before making such critiques cause..well sometimes you have an off day or a certain piece just does'nt go the way you wanted!! or you just plain miss something!
and I allways try to communicate clearly of the aspect that seems to need improvement, then I ALLWAYS comment on the artists strong points which are many as to the one that may need improvement, and I allways try to keep communication open to come up with solutions IF the artist wishs!?! ...oh and I only give critiques to those with the "critiques welcome" on ( a much overlooked feature perhaps!)
Anyhow I have been recieving a growing number of rude and disrespectful replies to such critiques!?!? most rebuttals are as such "your gallery sucks! why should I listen to you!?" to this I never take personally...how can anyone really art IS subjective to the audiance one persons "awesome" is anothers "crappy gallery"! BUT in the world of proffessional art you will have an audiance of thousands to millions of non-art people to make happy ( not mentioning editors that cant draw stick figures) giving you critiques and if You want success you HAVE to listen and take to heart those critiques!!!
I think a critique from a non-artist is THE best critique you can get!!! the reason being is that they are tapped into what the other million non-art types that buy,watch and totally devour art related items LIKE!!! they have an eye for what the art is as a whole rather than an artists eye for what techniques should and should'nt be used.
I personaly LOVE getting critiques!!! it helps me grow in skill much faster by pinpointing weakness's ...in fact look through my gallery almost every other piece I recieved a valuble critique that I instantly took to heart ( other thant the Iron-arena one...I could'nt figure how to get it darker without losing the character!?) and I have learned from those mistakes!!!
Now then, What do you guys think!?!? do you like or dislike critiques!?!? have you been noticing rude or disrespectful backash to your critiques!?!? .....let me know guys and ladys!?
great artists and greater friends-
