Critiquing And Insulting Stamp by xXPariahsXx Critiquing And Insulting Stamp by xXPariahsXx
This is for all of the brave critiques out there. :heart:

Now, I myself, am not good at critiquing other people's art. I love to look at it, spot details and interesting quirks, but I don't find myself skilled enough to be able to point out flaws that could make it better. I can do that with my own art, but that's simply because, like the old saying goes, "an artist is his/her own worst critique," which means that a good artist will spot countless flaws within their own work that most other people probably wouldn't notice.

Regarding the first part said, I really do admire the people who are able to and do critique others' work. The reason I say that is because of the ignorance that attacks them.

There is a difference between critiquing and insulting ladies and gents. Really there is.

Critiquing is used to help the artist out. They point out mistakes and actually tell you how to improve. For example:

"Her nose and mouth protrude out further than they should, and while the nose is going to stick out further than the forehead, her lips should roughly follow the same line that her forehead lies on."

That is a critique.

This is an insult:

"This picture sucks. She looks so stupid. You should really stop drawing."

You see what I'm getting at? Loosen up people. Appreciate that people are taking the time to help you improve.

Feel free to use, guys.

Huh apparently I've been named the 'dumbest person on the internet' by this one person on here. Just because I dislike swearing? O.o Anyway there is a difference between critiquing the person and saying there art or writing is terrible. I review story's and art but I'm not so good at critiquing. I still be nice though but for this one artist on here ArianaVampireQueen...um...I'm sure you all know her no? ^^;

I've been named the worst artist on this site. People don't even tell me how to improve. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Well critique can be done in such a blunt fashion that it could also be seen as insulting. But yeah people who go "HURHUR SHITSUX" and call that critique deserve everything you can chew out at them. Derp.

Yeah, I'm not a critique myself, but I feel so bad for those that actually do and get bashed. :( It's not right, especially when they're just trying to help.

Geez...I'm really sorry to hear that you had to do that.

Aw, it's ok. I like this account better anyway. :3
But yeah. D: It's awful that people have to be afraid of getting bashed. ;w;
I guess people just don't realize that words on the internet are still words that affect real people.

That being said, it's really nice to see a stamp like that. :3

I've actually had this experience before where someone left an unnecessary, hurtful comment on a piece of mine, then they tried to justify it by saying "Oh, I was just critiquing it." Because in their mind, apparently, critiques and flames are the same thing. :roll:

Extremely agreed with this...

A critique contains a positive output with checks and advice on errors of a creation, and which can be solved ^^;

what I hate are those that are like...they give a critique but with no support what so ever and they pretty much say: "you suck 8/"

by all means I SUPPORT THIS STAMP >.>b

This is so true if you want to insult it then do it verbally to your computer not on a critique cuz its not helping them.
