Do you want my help or not? - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
Do you want my help or not?
This is for those of you who show me your art. im often confused as to how you want me to react to it, so i figured id give you a little poll and depending on your personal answers, ill react accordingly. im not out to offend anyone, its just some people want a critique, and some people just wanna show me..and all of that is cool and fine with me. i cant tell you how many times someone asks my advice and doesnt take it, or ignores me completely, or gets mad at me for one stupid reason or another cuz i didnt gush. so...if you want me to gush, ill gush, if you wanna be serious, hey ill be serious! if you dont want me to say anything at all..just say so and ill keep my trap shut. i LOVE seeing your guys' art, but as i get opinions/pointers on mine *though not as often as id like* my natural reaction is to help rather than lie and say everythings perfect. i mean hey..im definitely not perfect *points to various scribbles of hers*. so...without further ado...

Poll #127955 Random Questions about Art

Scenario: you show me your art. would you like me to..

gawk at it and say nothing more than *nice*
point out any anatomical errors in that Thorn special way *ie: NICE*
sugar coat EVERYTHING..well, hes falling over and one hands bigger than the BUT i like the way you chose shocking pink as your accent color..so..good job. id say its done!
offer a redline, but i do mean OFFER. you dont have to take one
gush about it. OMG its PERFECT!

Would you think i knew what i was talking about IF i pointed out any anatomical errors?

yes, definitely
no, whatchoo talkin 'bout Thorn?
you took those classes, youd have to know at least a little
youre just guessing to sound smart

If i offered a critique and/or redline, would you heed my corrections/advice?

id smile and nod and humor you but i wouldnt change a thing
of course id have a go at it
id get mad
id ignore everything you said about my sketch, ink it AND color it and THEN ask you how it looked

Why do you think i made this poll?

Thorn feels bad no one listens to her
Thorn loves to correct peoples horrid mistakes
Thorn likes to help out
Thorn gets irked by bad art
Thorn does not want these confusing experiences to happen anymore

Current Mood: curious curious
Current Music: silence. why silence? *turns on radio* there we go. Loveline

For the second one I wanted to put that "getting a second opinnion on anatomy is good to do anyway and I'd trust you with that second opinnion before most people." You don't tend to base your redlines and such on personal style preference (ie huge feet or enormous eyes) like I've seen before. You work with the artists style to improve the work. There's my number two! :)

yay! *hugs* yeah ive been milling around on yerf lately and ive been noticing a lot of those "unhelpful" redlines. you know the ones...where they totally redraw the picture in their own style etc etc. it would be one thing if they said "this is a suggestion for the placement of the arm" or something..but its not. their way is "right" =P

thanks for the vote of confidence =)

as for the last question...just to let everyone know..not ALL of them are true. =)
