The Art of the Critique:
Don't take it personally, just take it seriously.
I think the main thing to remember when giving or receiving a critique is that it is not about the person giving the critique, or the person receiving the critique. It is SOLELY about the art in question.
I am writing this thread because I think it is important for people to understand the critique process to avoid possible fights and hurt feelings. I will be coming back and adding to it from time to time. If any of you feel that you have suggestions that could make it better, please post them and I might add them.
I hope people find it helpful.
