The internet is a great place for art criticism, if you particularly want people to complain to you about ships/headcanons or accuse you of making someone’s skin too light. But actual, reasonable critiques on technique and form can sometimes be hard to come by. This is a thread for people who want genuine criticism of their art/advice on how to improve, without all the other nonsense the internet produces.
I’m a freelance writer and amateur artist who got back into drawing last year, after a drawing hiatus of several years. As someone who frequently got bad/poorly communicated advice on art when I was younger, I know firsthand how much that can mess you up as an artist. I feel like I’ve come a long way in a short time, but I still have so much I need to work on. This thread was born from a desire to improve, and to give others a venue to learn how they can improve.
The Gist of It
There’s really not any rules on how to post or what to post. You can post specific pieces of art and ask for advice on specific aspects of it, or just toss your art onto the pile and let people determine what needs improvement/what you’re doing well. Just remember that this is a thread for artists, both those looking to help others and those looking to improve their art. Don’t post here if you’re just looking to mock people’s art without giving constructive criticism. Aside from that, have fun!
