Read here Before you Review / Critique drawings
« on: May 04, 2008, 01:31:27 PM »
Ok Lets keep it simple. I hope you have read the objective of this forum here,

http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,554.0.html


So basically what all we need is encourage people to draw and help them to improve their skills. Also help them to publish their arts without worrying or shy.
So when you critique or review others drawings please keep this in mind.

Critiques and reviews with reasons and logic are always welcome ! thats what help others to  improve and move on.

What we don't need is bad or negative remarks or remarks without reasons. such as

" Your arts look horrible "
" these look like crap you better quit "
" I don't like your drawing style "
" Your linearts are bad "
" Characters don't look like human "

I guess you can get the idea ... here's whats you can do,

01. Keep your Reviews and Critique always friendly.

02. Critique are welcome ! If you see something which can improve show it. But do it in professional and friendly manner.

03. Never discourage or hurt others feelings. We all are humans it take time to become gurus or experts.

04. If you finds a weak point in a draw but you are not sure how to explain it then try to tell it nicely or just tell what you like about the drawing the positive side.

05. Even you might have nothing to say about a drawing still a little encouraging word means a lot to the artist.


If you have any question or things you don't understand about this, feel free to post here.

my opinion is...
"
JUST ACCEPT THE CRITIQUE!!
IF SOMEONE SAID YOUR DRAWING IS SUCK OR WHAT EVER NEGATIVE COMMENT...JUST ACCEPT IT..!! AND DO NOT GIVE UP OR QUIT!!! DRAW MORE!! TRY YOUR BEST TO IMPROVE YOURSELF..!! AND ASK THEM TO EXPLAIN WHICH PART DO MAKE THEM SAID ITS A BAD ART..!! AND FOR SOMEONE THAT WANNA COMMENT....PLEASE...BE HONEST...DONT SAID THAT.."WOW YOUR ART IS REALLY GOOD KEEP IT UP" BUT THE FACT IT IS NOT...COZ THAT MAKE THE THE PERSON THINK "NAHH IM GOOD ALRDY NO NEED TO IMPROVE IT...BESIDES THEY LOVE MY DRAWING" YOU JUST MAKE THE PERSON STAY OR REMAIN AT THE SAME LEVEL...SOO THE GOOD WAY TO CRITIQUE OTHERS COMMENT IS...TELL THEM WHICH PART DO THEY NEED TO IMPROVE THEIR DRAWING AND THEN ENCOURAGE THEM..!!

EX: "YOU CANT' HIDE YOUR CHARACTER HAND FOREVER...TRY TO DRAW A CHARACTER WITHOUT HIDING THEIR HAND NEXT TIME...IM SURE ITS MAKE YOUR DRAWING MUCH BETTER..NEVER GIVE UP TRY YOUR BEST AND GOOD LUCK ^^"

What you say is very true. Only with practice an you truly improve. Art can come naturally for a lucky few but others can learn through continuous effort.

On another note, the caps lock is a bit annoying Yuuki. =X

Well, in contrary (whatever that means) I think it's good to to tell people their drawings look nice :3 'Criticism is a good thing, but it doesn't help as much as practice AND
people know the quality of their art and what to to improve on (if you don't, just compare to someone more skilled than you), so we've got to cheer on them :3 Criticism is important but so is... I SERIOUSLY CAN'T REMEMBER THE WORD!!!!!... cheering *sigh* I don't want to use that word---

I once got dumped a half page of critiques on me once. i couldnt draw anything in a week or so. There wasnt any kind words about the drawing.

I tried to learn from the critique, and it did work, but i sure didnt feel very well xD
