I sure am, thanks anon! You're welcome!
sorry, it just bugs me when I don't ask for critique and people give it to me anyway. I'm perfectly aware of my flaws and am working on them. I just come here when I feel like doodling and don't have any good ideas. If I wanted critique I would go somewhere else.
>Doesn't want critique
>Posts art on 4chan
Do you know where you are, Anon?
>it just bugs me when I don't ask for critique and people give it to me anyway
Then you don't quite get the point with drawthreads.
50% is generating OC
50% is promoting artist growth
Critique is artist growth.
I don't want asspats, I just want to draw for people and I don't want critique. No wonder this place is deader than it used to be.
>50% is generating OC
>50% is promoting artist growth
>Critique is artist growth.
I'm the artist and I should have the right to say whether I am looking for critique or not. Never mind, now I remember why I left this place in the first place.
>I don't want asspats, I just want to draw for people and I don't want critique. No wonder this place is deader than it used to be.
no, its fucking dead because its a board based off a game that only releases every so often
if you are an artist you either get and accept critique or fuck off
>No wonder this place is deader than it used to be
Any artist who abandons these threads because of a little constructive criticism clearly has no goddamn place in the thread to begin with.
I am probably FAR too late, but how about Cloyster
It may not be what you wanted for sure. But no one should have to deal with shit like that. This ain't DA
In which case, I won't give you any kind of critique. I'll just flat out say that your piece was shit and was drawn in one of the most retarded styles I've seen on here in a while. Better? No room for growth.
I say its fairly appreciated. I've drawn here for a few years as well before taking a break and although no one really knows me, I almost always got a thank you in return for drawing. I only really stopped for now to work on other things and practice other skills. Also because I'm lazy.
That said, it isn't a necessity and a drawfag should always draw for their own benefit (whatever that may be) and never feel like the requester should be obligated to thank them. This place is about as casual for the requesters as it is for most of the people who draw for them. I understand that it is nice to receive gratitude from a requester but being in the place we are you should always expect attitude from someone as well.
Do you have a problem
I never said It was a shit drawing, just a spot where it could be improved upon.
>you have to request critique now
thinskinned hugbox mentality shits go and stay go
no fuck off
there are shits in this thread saying we should never give critique, the most important thing an artist can get
I am absolutely fine with shit drawings
Ive been there
Im not proud of my early stuff
but through reflection and CC, Im much better now
I know a dude who is working on a webcomic, the dude's art isn't on the level that Araki's Part 7 or One-Punch Man Manga dude's art is as they're both top tier but he's not an ass and accepts pointers and even occasionally asks for tips or where he could improve and he has, now I'm not any anon who has been partaking in this up untill now and I probably won't post anymore on this after this post but get your head metaphorically out of your ass and deal with critique as it could help you improve.
To be honest, I've gotten where I am through self critique and hating almost everything about my work and comparing it to others. I'm still highly dissatisfied with a lot of my work, but I also always try to make everyone better than the last. On some level, I think most artists know they can do better, its knowing how to actually achieve that better or what that better is that is the difficult part. Another persons perspective can definitely be helpful but in the end, only the artist will know where they will want to end up. If they wish to stagnate or even just think they can do it themselves, then ranting to them about critique won't do you much good. They'll have to figure out on their own if a person's advice is what will help them reach their goals.
You are all missing the point of these threads. People can come here to draw for fun. in the past drawfags were sent to the /ic/ sticky to practise stuff. It's up to themselves anyway if they want critique or advice.
That's what most of us are here for, and it's not nearly as fun to draw when people point out flaws. If you want to draw professionally, I get it, but always say "thank you," and leave it at that when someone delivers unless they ask for critiques. Not the deliverer, btw. Just an anon.
For fun. I can't really speak. I stopped drawing because the drawthread told me to stop trying. I knew that I wasn't good, but I also saw what I could improve on over time without /vp/'s help. It just sucks that people here demand absolute professionality and can't just let a guy take baby steps.
>This thread is for the growth of artists and for people who want to enjoy themselves.
There are people who want to improve and there are people who just want to draw. If you want citique, ask for it. That's completly up to you, but people like me draw and don't care about critique. If I want to increase my drawing's quality, I'll get some advices about anatomy, light and shadow, brush settings and whatever I want to improve. But in these threads I draw for fun only, not to sit another lesson.
grow a pair
>It just sucks that people here demand absolute professionality and can't just let a guy take baby steps.
Nobody does this
truly the words of a thin-skinned baby
can someone do this with your favorite (or least favorite) cat pokemon?
I dont actually browse /ic/
The last time I went there was to find an app for a posable skeleton
Im not going to post my art, its too heated to do that at this point. Inb4 you use this as a copout
A copout for what? What if, hypothetically, none of us wanted to improve? That's be OK. There would still be a draw thread. People would still make requests and people would still get deliveries. When I make a request, I don't expect perfection. If I did, I'd make a commission. In fact,
Requesting a Ditto.
>When I make a request, I don't expect perfection.
Nobody expects this
why do you keep saying that
why are you strawmaning
Not that drawfag.
Might have taken too much artistic liberty with the design. It was fun to do though
which is why I hijacked this gjinka request sorry
Not that anon but I kinda already know who you are, since you are rather passionate and have stated this stuff before. You definitely have improved since you came here and it was likely through critiques and self reflection as you said, but you've got to understand that some people just aren't looking for that here. I agree that if an anon is giving critique here that they should not complain and suck it up. However, I also do not believe they are not obligated to take it. They have to decide for themselves whether its something they want to consider and if they do not wish to, you should just let them be on there way and casually do whatever. If they don't get any better and they desire to then it on them to consider the critique reflect on what they want.
Man I really fucked up the grammar in that.
>Thats fine, but to be whole opposed to it is retarded
Yeah, I mostly agree with that. If they don't want the critique, they should just ignore it and not make a huge fuss. This has always gotten us into trouble in the past. Also it should be noted that critique isn't "it's shit" since that is obviously just a shitpost to rile people up.
I literally copied the original image background since replacing the characters was all that was requested and I didn't have a lot of time to work on it, that said caving the ground would've been a nice touch indeed.
So holy shit what happened here? One guy mentions a small improvement that could be made to more accurately represent an absol and everyone starts calling him a big bad meanie and arguing about criticism? What the actual fuck guys? I get if you don't WANT to hear criticism, just ignore it. But to outright refuse it is childish especially when it's constructive. No one is saying you need to be perfect, but when someone makes a suggestion for your future work you don't need to make it a goddamn federal case, because the critic is trying to help you improve. You may not have said you wanted it but you sure as shit didn't say you didn't want it. you posted it on an anonymous forum in a tread about drawing and improving art, so while criticism may not be your ideal outcome, it's the obvious outcome. If you truly fashion yourself an artist of any caliber you should take the fucking criticism, because while nobody likes being told they're wrong they should at least adapt to the correction.
tl;dr whether you like it or not they're trying to help you, pussy.
>It's not appreciated
Speak for yourself, dumb fuck. I want critique because I legitimately want to improve with each piece I do. Have fun staying mediocre because you never learn what you're doing wrong.
You are some kind of retarded. If I wanted to post my work, I would. I don't, so I'm not. It's that fucking simple. If you're going to whine, then next time just don't fucking post it. I swear to fucking god, did you migrate here from deviant art?
>Literally using the arguement used against you so you can try to get someone to post their art so you can spew shit at it because your feelings are hurt.
You know what? Fine. I'm not the only anon here arguing it, but I personally concede. You're too stupid to actually understand what I'm trying to say and instead keep popping in these retarded little strawmen. No wonder half the art in these threads tends to suck anymore. Because we have idiots like you.
>Your argument sucks
>The art in here sucks
That anon isn't even the one you've been accusing of strawmanning this whole time, and the fact that you attack his argument with a strawman of your own shows you really don't know what you're talking about. If the art here sucks so bad, then go practice Loomis with /ic/. Literally nobody will care.
>I'm the artist and I should have the right to say whether I am looking for critique or not
Well then fucking tough titties, /vp/ is not a hugbox, neither is the rest of 4chan, if you're afraid of people giving you critique at any range when it comes to your art, then you really don't have any place being a drawfag.
There's lots of drawfags on 4chan who started out shit or mediocre, but eventually progressed to be become much more talented, part of why that happens is that people tell them what they do right, what they do wrong, what they should improve, what they should do differently.
If you can't handle it, then why the hell are you here? Why should we spend time trying to foster the talent of an incredibly mediocre artist who has no interest in learning how to get better? You're wasting our time by meandering about with the same low level of art. Nobody would mind shitscribbles as much if you made an effort of improving and showed it.
There's a difference between being an elitist cockwad and actually providing legit criticism and (ideally) suggesting improvement.
How the hell are you gonna grow as an artist if everyone just lies to you and tells you "This looks great!"
Because real artists can see for themselves, "I could improve this. I'll work on this next." Sometimes after looking at a finished product, you don't want to scrap the whole thing because proportions might be off. You just wanna be proud of what you DID do and let yourself improve over time. Autistic "constructive criticism" doesn't help in that process as much as you'd like to think it does.
>Because real artists can see for themselves, "I could improve this. I'll work on this next."
Fucking go to art school, or do anything in the real world pertaining to art and see how quickly that thought of yours is decimated.
>go to art school to learn how to draw
That's not even what I implied faggot, but if anything;
>Go to art school to improve your art, under the direction of more accomplished artists.
Naw it's cool it was my fault
How so I'm pointing out >>24628350 retarded use of reverse psychology to try and get >>24628395 to post their art in order to talk shit because >>24628350 is assblasted
That logic makes no sense. He was telling me that he enjoys cc on his work, so I asked to see his work so I could give him cc. Just admit you have no idea what you're talking about.
I'm not contradicting myself you fucking dipshit. The argument isn't "Every artist should post their art and accept critique" it's "if you post your art, you should be open to critique." How the hell aren't you wrapping your head around that?
theres no point in arguing with you because your some dipshit who thinks cc is bad
how retarded do you have to be to think that
the person is literally trying to help another with cc
>nobody asked for you to post draws
And nobody asked for your criticism, so why are you getting so booty-blasted when someone points that out to you? He voiced that he preferred not to have criticism, just to be met with "Don't get snooty with me."
B T F O
>literally trying to help
Are you this autistic to think that you're honestly trying to help? You're trying to point out flaws in some vain attempt to feel good about yourself. So retarded.
That's not why the guy told him not to get snotty. Did you read the fucking thread? He said "you're welcome for the free art, though." Like the guy who was just trying to help out was being an ungrateful prick. That's a little fucking shitty. Also, good job memeing. Fucking epic, mate.
Who cares? Who honestly cares? If you don't, then move on. If someone doesn't want your "cc," then move on. You've blown this so far out of proportion it's become annoying.
The artist was getting absolutely harrassed by some autistic d/ic/ks, for like 20 posts before I said that "I agree" with the artist. Admit it. You're just butthurt that someone disagrees with you.
I believe that is what you would call a
It looked pretty intentional to me, but that other guy felt the need to throw his autism into it. Don't like his art style? Get over it. Accept the free art. He was right for saying that. Learn to appreciate a free gift.
Yes. I INTENTIONALLY gave the ARTIST some COMMENT AND CRITICISM. I never remarked about the quality of the art, we all start somewhere. All I did was said the snout the too big. Sounds fair right? Very neutral.
But no he was passive agressive about it and I only wanted to help and then hugbox mentality kicked in.
some people man.
The thread is slow anyway and he never said sorry, the real problem was the people blindly defending it
sorry for being nice and justifiably responding, maybe you should quell yours.
I'm only not here because I'm lazy. This silliness is par for the course, or used to be anyway. Sometimes people just have thread long disagreements that turn into rants about things I don't really care about.
It's sketchy, but I'm tired. Here you go anyway
only if you let me cc them and they cc mine ; )
Shit, forgot the image.
It was one of my first attempts at doing lineless. Been wanting to change stuff around when it comes to "technique". I usually do nothing but ink and lines. I really wanna better my art and trying new things in drawthreads are helping. Gimme something to do please, i'll do my best.
