Hello all who see this.
forgive me if this has been posted before. A quick hotword search with "critique" would probably show the answer I am looking for,
But I will also use this opportunity to say hello and as I will be here for the long haul.
Basically I just wanted to ask people's opinions on receiving thoughtful critique from artists they deem at a lower skill level to themselves.
Being on here I always try and do more than just give ass pats to the higher tiers which in its own right, are good for artists as well.
It can be hard as it's quite easy to get blinded by a show of great draftsmanship that you fail to see the errors in the work you are viewing, but on the occassion
where critique is asked for, I try my best. However I personally feel out of place when critiquing a piece of work I know I could not do.
An example would be like a white belt in Karate, commenting on a black belts movement. The black belt is the one who has been putting in the hard work the longest
so what does this newbie fresh off the boat know.
that is how I feel the higher tiers feel when I comment on their work sometimes.
Me personally I am all ears to critique from people who may not be as good as me; you can learn from new comers as well as from higher tiers.
again with reference to martial arts the white belt may notice a slight error in movement that the higher belt is not correcting and can point it out, because he is being drilled on that specific movement. you learn things through reading that someone who is higher than you may not have come across.
hmmm I'm hoping my clarity in typing is better than my clarity in speech as I feel somewhat that this can confuse.
do you welcome thoughtful critique from all levels? do you feel a critique from a lower level although a kind gesture, is futile because you already know the flaws?
are you appreciative of this attempt at critique or are you like "Your art is whack jack, get outta here~ you don't know shit.
hmmmmmmm I will continue in my efforts to be more than just an asspatter anyway (unless you got a big ol' ass lol I joke i joke) but just curious on the thoughts of others if they take offence.
