I've decided recently to to start actually taking time to leave detailed and in depth reviews in the Art Portal. I guess its mostly just being sick of there being so little actual critiques on pieces, especially the ones that are almost there in terms of quality but are just missing some factor that is keeping them from shining. Even more frustrating is the useless comments I see from time to time.
So if you've got any art you'd like me to critique just leave it in the comments or pm me and I'll probably get to it within a day or so of seeing it. If you're afraid of your drawing being eviscerated then don't worry I'm not going to be an asshole about it or try to tear you down and insult you or your art, I don't derive joy in putting people down like that.
With that being said I am now going to vent about something that really really really bothers me to the point of actually weighing on my mind that a very small amount of artists do here but is pretty prominent on social media sites and Deviant art(from the extremely small amount of time I've spent on that site). When working with traditional art - particularly colored pencils, pens and/or markers - sometimes the artist will inexplicably choose to take a picture of the drawing with the pens/pencils/markers in the shot to show that "hey these are what I used to make this!" DO NOT FUCKING DO THAT. It looks awful, we all know what pencils look like, you're taking attention away from your art with the materials, you're messing up the compostition or taking up valuable space that could be better suited for details and readability. Write in the description what materials you used. jeez.
Anyway, yeah I'm doing critiques and reviews now so if you want me to review/critique your art let me know. If not I might just do that anyway. Don't forget to go make an art thread in the art forum and participate in the activities there. See ya!
