WTP'S GUIDE TO EFFECTIVE DEVIANTART CRITIQUES
It is important to understand the difference between the type of critique we give and receive here on deviantART, and the type of critique seen elsewhere.
At deviantART, we tend to give critique on the technical aspects of how an image or literary work was executed. While 'real-world' critique often references technical aspects of a subject, it is likely to be about things that are even more subjective, like sociopolitical impact of a piece, morality, successful execution of x combination of styles, etc. This kind of 'critique of intent' is going to be irrelevant to most people on deviantART. Many may not even recognize it as a legitimate critique!
In fact, deviantART's Fair Critique Policy discourages 'critiques of intent' by stating that "Critiques are not intended as personal criticisms of behavior, politics or opinion of an Artist and should concentrate only on discussion and an evaluation of the artwork itself."
  Don't critique a piece if you hav

I was born in Kettering Ohio but grew up primarily in the Northwest.  I remember in third grade I started drawing superhero cards and had my best friend color them.  We took the cards off to the in house laminator machine and started selling the cards at lunch.  I think we made a grand total of $3.30. (My mom ended up buying most of them).
In elementary school I remember playing X-Men at recess with my friends.  I was always Cyclops.  I wore glasses (still do) so naturally I was the one-eye-laser-blasting Cyclops.  In forth grade I started drawing Cyclops exclusively and screen

Fan Art Character Bonanza: LotR
:heart: Following the wild success of the Harry Potter Character Bonanza, the Fan Art Department introduces the second character bonanza: Lord of the Rings!
What is this Character Bonanza?
Every day there will be an assigned character to draw/paint/sculpt/etc! One a day for as long as the bonanza lasts!
What are the guidelines?
:bulletgreen: You can participate in as many days as you'd like!
:bulletgreen: Work must be new and for this specific event! No older submissions allowed. :)
:bulletgreen: Your piece can feature more than one character, but it will only count for the day you submit it!
:bulletgreen: Relaxed Guidelines: While the first bonanza required you to turn in your artwork for each day (no earlier, no later) you CAN turn in your characters ANYTIME up until the last day of the bonanza!
:bulletgreen: Marathon Guidelines: If you would like to participate the same as before, one character turned in each day, that is fine too!

From Emo to Smile and the Llamas in Between
dA was the first thing to make me truly happy in a long long time. That's the conclusion to my story though. The beginning was 1998.
In early 1998, my cat, the family cat, was diagnosed with feline leukemia. We did surgery after surgery, but nothing helped. About 8 months after she was initially diagnosed, my mother was diagnosed with melanoma (skin cancer) and cervical cancer. It didn't take long for my parents to realize that no matter how it traumatized us kids, we just couldn't keep our cat alive any longer. She was put to sleep and buried in the backyard. What I understood: Cancer kills you, Mom's going to die. She didn't, and she's still alive and can't free today, but that realization, that understanding about death, stays with me. I was 8.
That winter, not long after Christmas, my mom received a phone call from her mother. My grandfather had died. I didn't know him well, but with the recent death of our cat, and my understanding growing stronger, it hurt me still.
The next year

I spend about 80% of my time making comics.
Interests
  • Listening to: Somersault by Zero 7 on When it Falls
  • Drinking: Very potent Earl Grey Tea
Has it really been four years since I joined dA? Yes, yes it has. Goodness time flies doesn't it?
Yeah.

For me, I'm spending summer between a couple of relatives' places. Trying to get as much work on Stymie done as possible. I intended to write a journal recapping and reviewing everything I learned from last semester at school, but it's been awhile since that happened. Can't recall enough of it that I could write anything intelligent about it. So perhaps I'll just say a few things here anyways.

I still intend on doing Dingo at some point. I'm hoping to get my hands on a book the talks about MI6 and read that so I can have a better grasp at historical context. I'm also changing a lot of things, hopefully to make it more concrete. Still have to figure out how to style it, and I might do it with line-work or line-less. I think they somehow take almost the same amount of time. Ink stage versus flatting stage or something like that.

I think what Stymie might have over what Dingo had is it's more inspired. Admittedly, when I first did Dingo, not only did it only lack direction ALOT, but the characters were heavily referential. Not necessarily I bad thing, but the characters in Stymie are more of their own nature. I have a little bit of reference for Wes' character, but the rest just are. It makes them seem a little more authentic to me.

Remind me to make a review of the things I learn from Stymie. Admittedly, its been quite alot.

Cheerio dA folks.
