Over the years I have been a member here, I have encountered so many people who either give aggressive, negative comments or are afraid of constructive criticism because of the aggressive, negative comments. It really makes me sad to see so many people avoiding something so fundamental and important to artists because of fear. So I decided to make a tutorial concerning constructive criticism, what it is, and how to give it!

Please stop by #Critiqual-mass
! It's a new and upcoming critique group geared towards learning how to give and receive critique, as well as helping you get and give critique!
Check out #ProjectComment
. It is a wonderful group filled with kind, courtesy and constructive commenters who look to share and receive beneficial feedback.
Favorite this and spread the word.
Special thanks to *MachinesBleedToo
for letting me use her art in this tutorial. The piece I chose to use is something that I critiqued on in the past, and *MachinesBleedToo
has always been sort of a mentor to me. Just looking at her art is inspiring and educational, and she is very friendly, straight-forward, and has written some of the best critiques I have ever received on this website. Thank you for everything, *MachinesBleedToo
. You are truly an inspiration. Features:
