Veeeeeery few things in life get me really well and truly pissed off (the Westboro Baptist Church is one, but this ain't about that).
There's this girl, over on deviantART
, and apparently y!Gallery
too, who goes around giving what she thinks is 'constructive criticism' to people.
Pretty much everyone she does it too is pissed off with what she says. She made my friend Terra cry because it was a huge blow to her ego that she really didn't need.
Over on y!Gallery she also commented on my artwork in a similar fashion.
Today she commented on Kitty's art, also in a similar fashion.
I shall show you what she said.( Collapse )
Someone tell me I'm not over-reacting? I probably am but she's done this to so many people and all of them, if not than definitely the majority, don't appreciate it and hate her for it.
She said on her deviantART page
that she's like Simon Cowell. What? Even the douche has the decency to give a good comment about something. All of what she says is negative and near downright bashing.
And the thing is she KNOWS people get angry at her for it! Ok, then why don't you stop darlin'? Cleary she wants attention because she didn't even change her username or her icon on y!Gallery.
Now, some of what she says can be honestly taken as good advice, but to me this seems like a 'not what she said but how she said it' situation.
I'm gonna be truthful too and say most of my anger comes from the fact she made Terra cry and accused her girlfriend of white-knighting when she stood in to defend her.
She keeps repeating the same things about anatomy and shading and yet doesn't give any helpful advice of how to make it look better! She gives all these negative comments without a single good point. If she at least said something nice then it would be an attempt at constructive criticism but noooooo, its all 'this is wrong' and 'that is wrong' and 'oh god what were you thinking?'.
More often than not an artist knows when they've fucked up in a drawing or piece of art, you don't need to have someone like her rubbing it in your face and making you feel even worse about it. You can just move on from your mistakes and learn from them. You don't need 'critics' like her coming in and pointing out what you more than likely already know.
