btw love the first 5 comments. Gave me help with critique and lifted me up thanks a buch! =)
I told myself I would not reply to this thread anymore as I don’t believe you’re ready to receive actual critique or really understand the process. But this comment irks me. The purpose of critique is to get OBJECTIVE insights into your work – the good, the bad and the plain old ‘meh’. It’s purpose isn’t just to ‘lift you up’ as you say. It’s purpose is to make you critically evaluate your work and ask yourself, ‘how can I make this better?’. What can I do better next time? No one is trying to bring you down, people are actually just trying to help you. Your friends and family will do all the ‘you go girl’ and all the other enthused accolades you want. That is all well and good but it won’t help you grow as an artist.
IHF posted some great links, you would benefit a lot from reading them.
