This thread is for "Advanced Critique". If you have a piece that you want to improve and need advice, or if you just want to improve your work in general, you can post your work in this thread. BEWARE:: Posts here will be HONEST and may at times seem harsh. Do not post up your art if you are not prepared to have it analyzed. Consider yourself forewarned.
IF YOU ARE POSTING ART:
> Please only post one drawing at a time, not just a link to your gallery and say "crit away".
> Follow the other guidelines of the forum.
> Try to accept crits with grace IF YOU ARE CRITIQUING:
> Just because you're giving a crit, doesn't mean you get to stop being polite. Try to phrase your crits in such a way that it's not offensive, remember, this is a person's CRAFT. Be HONEST, but BE NICE.
> Critiques point out both GOOD and BAD. It's not a rule, but as a personal guideline, the best crits will point out an equal number of good poitns and bad points. Once you're out of good points to mention, stop pointing out bad points, unless the artist specifically requests you to "crit it to shreds". Conversely, if you can't find anything *bad* to say, don't go on and on about how awesome something is. That's not the point of "advanced critique".
> Try not to do a "draw over" unless the artist asks for it. In the art world, doing it without permission is considered by some to be VERY rude. Also, try not to point out pieces you've done to illustrate a point. If you think you draw better, that's fine. That doesn't make you more important.
> BE SPECIFIC: "I just don't like it" or "this sux!" ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE CRITS. And I WILL come down on you for trolling if you post such things. If you're not *sure* what's wrong, just mention that "something seems off... around the nose" or something like that.
> Lastly, if you're new to art, or don't draw, or don't really know how to crit... do us a favour and DON'T CRIT. If you're new and want to learn to crit, that's fine. Also feel free to just watch and learn, you'll probably learn a lot!
Sorry for all the words, but a crit thread can go horribly horribly wrong
