Critiques- please read!

It's extremely difficult to grow as an artist if you keep going on doing what you've always done. Artists get so involved in a piece, and occasionally full of themselves, that they cry foul whenever anyone criticizes their work regardless of the intentions of the critic.
Some of us see some glaring fault in the anatomy or lighting, etc. and simply want to help correct it to improve the piece overall. We're not doing it to be mean. We're not trying to attack you personally. however, when someone posts a critique on a piece that wasn't asked for, I can understand getting a little grumpy. This still doesn't warrant chewing out the critic.
We as critics need to be responsible for how we word things. Try to be constructive. Constructive criticism is what makes the difference between a critique and bitching and nitpicking.
I know I have flaws in my art, and I would love to have people come and point them out to me. Help me figure out what I'm doing wrong so I can fix it and make it better.
I feel I've become one of those faceless people who just go around favoriting what I like. This is because I've had poor experiences where people get mad at a helpful piece of advice. I feel that the favorite click goes far enough in praising a work, that I don't need to add to the mindless "this is awesome" comments.

This being said, I would love critique on my work! I would love to critique yours as well. But please let me know that you want to be critiqued. I will do my best to be professional and helpful without being insulting but only so long as you're willing to behave the same way.

I love to receive critique, Although when I critique others it's hard to pinpoint exactly what needs to be said. But I agree constructive criticism is needed to grow as an artist.

The biggest thing that sets my eye twitching is wonky anatomy, and usually the first thing I notice about someone's work - can the position be held in real life?
But, if you'd like a critique, please send me a link to a piece you want feedback on!

critiques are something i want more of on my pictures. the best kind is constructive criticism since it usually helps you grow as an artist in skills.

It's something that's seriously lacking in this fandom. People get grumpy if someone uses reference but they don't want to hear that their anatomy is all goofy.
Send me a link to something you want feedback on!

I appreciate critique myself. I don't like random complaints or nitpicking, but helpful critique is something I'm happy to give and get.

One thing that gets lost in all this is the absence of constructive praise! You can help an artist by emphasizing what they got right in a picture just as much as pointing out what went wrong; in either case you're drawing attention to something they might otherwise miss.

True enough. It's something that's missing just about everywhere, nowadays. People tend to ignore what someone does right only to target the wrongs. I can do my job flawlessly and never get a "Job well done!" from my boss, but the moment I do something wrong...
If you'd like a critique, send me a link!
