criticism vs orignailty
Posted 6/9/10
a good friend of mine is a artist and Ive been seeing some of the comments he gets on devianart and im starting to wonder if critics actually discourage originality and i draw too[ on my cr page if you wanna see] but i like how i draw it may not be the best or even decent i dont take criticism so dont post any XD but i believe that to a certain degree criticism is bad how do you guys feel

My best advise: 'Deal with it!'

Like it or not, when you enter the world of art or writting, expect a few critics. If anything it shouldn't discourage you, but to strive to do better and prove them wrong.

I happen to write stories, and sometimes I do get a few rude replies, but I continue to write either way.

Meh. That's to be expected with everything in life. It gets criticized, but you shouldn't let negative comments affect you.

It's the same with my art whenever I show it to people. They say things like "I don't get it" or "Haha this looks stupid" or something just unnecessary and stupid just trying to insult you but yes you should just keep doing what you do no matter what people say. I mean I've been told off because I wanna make my own cartoons and I've been told things that put me down but hey I just look upwards and move on.

Just remember that a lot of the world's most influential artist were once dismissed as fools. Stick by your convictions.

Some criticism is okay, like, for example drawing the body. They may criticize on how you drew it, maybe the proportions were wrong, or something. I think usually criticism is for encouragement , and trying to help you do better... ?
Altho some 'criticisms', like 'this is weird' , or 'wtf is this' are just a matter of opinions. I wouldn't listen to them. :]

there is a difference between criticism and people just bashing your work cuz they're stupid if some one gives you criticism they're trying to help you so at least heed their advice. if some one is just bashing your work to try and be cool or some stupid reason just ignore them
