So this little issue has risen to the surface hmm.. whys that? well it just has ok so here we go *Engages Deadpool mode*
caution swearing, sarcasm, and bulldust ahead and me just off loading and fire shit at idiots that deserve it.
So after reading
journal one paragraph stood out to meFurthermore there is the lack of response to my art on here. I was honestly thinking about quitting DA since all I get are damn pageviews, but nothing else. The only thing I get occasionally are damned one word comments. What do you think I should draw from ones such as "cool", "nice", "cute", etc.? While it may be a reaction, it's not what serious artists look for and I brought this up repeatedly in the past. One word comments don't provide feedback of any kind as to how well or bad something is done. I rather have you not comment at all if all you can do is one or two words and a series of symbols (faces, etc.) rather than fully and properly phrased sentences (which is what most people on here would expect you to do if you made it through the sign up and if you manage to upload your pictures with proper descriptions). I don't have any other art pages (or the likes) to sign up to as my laptop and desktop PC are the only devices I can log onto the internet with.
So you read that yeah ok, so what am I going do make a song and dance about it... noooo.....But I am going to put a big neon sign up directing ugly people to a plastic surgeon though.
One word comments, really just one word is all that a person can describe you're art really? Now I'm going to paint a picture here.
Picture this the artist (you) has got inspired to do art whatever it be you do best, you've done the research, done sketches and then done the final version that you're happy with and then take the picture and then upload it to DA. Whilst looking at other stuff the upload has completed and you go to check to see if there's any comments, you click to see that there's a comment and all it has to say is something like: cool, nice or cute. Now to an artist of any degree one word does not cut it what it is doing more a less is underscoring them.
has summed it up pretty well on how it should be done
A Guide on Critiques (Amateur Addition!)Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, today we're going to be talking about a lovely lil thing in the art community called "criticism." Yep, that dreaded word that most everyone in the artist community hates. For some, criticism has the same definition as "hate" comments. However, real criticism is far from some nasty comment that a random user happens to make on your art.
So, what is a critique? And what's it's function?
First of all, let's see what the concrete definition of criticism really is. There are many types of criticism, but the one that is most important on this website is artistic criticism.
Criticism - The analysis and judgment of the merits and faults of a literary or artistic work.
Basically, it means that someone will go through and evaluate your art, usually pointing out both the good and bad in the piece. Also, critiques consists of a list of improvements the artist
. So keep that at the forefront of you're mind next time you comment.
What you don't want to do is demoralise an artist, or disappoint them with these one word comments, because the artist has worked pretty hard at what they do and these one word comment can affect each and everyone differently. My reaction is kinda like at times ah fuck'em they can have a cactus fibreglass dildo up their arse, then dipped in tar, cover in feathers, and thrown off a cliff signing "I believe I can fly" whilst high as a kite. But that's me each and every artist reacts differently, it can depress some, it can aggravate others or some just do nothin. But you don't want to see is one of those journals : I'm leaving DA.... That's just sad to me and really should not happen to a good artist to have to leave a site like this.
What you want to do is avoid the above all together ok.... good
So what do you need to do?
Well artist need their ego stroked, there balls fondled, there breast played with, there penises sucked, there vaginas licked and while you're their a blowjob too would be a good idea.
Artist need good feedback on their art so they can have an art orgasm because of how good you've made them feel. This inturn you get the artist's creativity going and the creative juices flow for them, so they'll be inspired to do something else which is something else for you the watcher to view down the track.
So you've got to give an artist good feedback and critique their work if they ask for it. It gives the artist that warm fuzzy feeling of being a artist and why they do art.
It also makes the artist evolve and become better with each and every piece they do and keeps them interested in what they do.
You need to encourage the artist and if you're watching you're not watching them for the hell of it are you, you watch them because you're interested in what the artist does and you have similar interest to them, don't watch them and expect them to watch you back either, watch them because you enjoy their art and try and describe how it gives you a art boner in the comment section so you can give the artist their art orgasm to produce more awesome art.
Boot on the other foot now
yeah think of this way if you're that artist that you're about to comment on are you going to be happy with that comment you just made, you might want to edit that one because you might make a complete ass of yourself and be appreciated as much as a slow driver on the autobarn. So you're gotta ask yourself how do I want my art orgasm this week from my art work....and after you do that type you're comment and go check out some other awesome art and comment on them also.
So that's enough from me on that I think I might have covered everything I can think of.... hmmm.... there's always something always just that one thing.....?
Ah well it will come to me later, any ways if you come up with something funny or a name for people that leave one comments on art you know what you gotta do just comment below it real easy, easier than you think realllllllyyyyyyyy.........
I remembered that one thing share this with you're friends by journal, fave it and don't forget to credit me thought or I will go Deadpool on you
the whole idea is to help artist and to make people think, because at the end of the day this helps you, you do want that art orgasm dontcha?
know what you gotta do now go do it off you go do it now.
*Disengage Deadpool mode*
Apologies if I have left any on any of you're works I will retract them and redefine them if you prefer
Oh you're still here
Well as for me I'm going to go to bed so I can wake up and do some art so I can have a art orgasm probably after I do what I do best and then do some railroading,
so that's all from me.
Be yourself now
