Hello, everyone! I would like this journal to set as a reminder that if you are going to comment on art-- whether it be "good" or "bad"-- you should be able to back up those claims and explain why.  I will not tolerate people insulting my (or others') art with lonely comments of "the anatomy is bad. This is horrible." or "this sucks" without explaining why  something is bad, horrible, etc. Comments like that make you look like a jerk and a troll.  If the work is considerably older, question if the comment is even worthwhile if the deviant has since improved. I find critiques on my anatomy, etc. from works that are over 3 years old rather pointless and irrelevant since I have obviously improved my anatomy, colouring, etc. since then. Commenting on a flaw from an artwork done in 2007 is not going to be as helpful as something done within the past two years: I already know how bad my art was 4+ years ago, I can critique the pieces just as well as you if not harsher.  I like critiques so long as they are helpful and give tips on improvement.

In a year and a half I will be graduating with a BFA in art, painting focus.  If there is one thing I have learned in my studies, that one thing is how to constructively critique and assess artwork.  I take critiques seriously when given seriously. If you cannot find anything better to say than "that is horrible" please go read A Short Guide to Writing About Art by Sylvan Barnett then get back to me (if you have not been blocked first).
