[QUOTE=Eltro102;34879873]you two sound like those people on da who are "you critisied me omg but im totatlly going to pretend that i dont care!"[/QUOTE] Except I care if I get crit and want it? Detlef is throwing a bitch fit right now, and it is because Mako was right to some extent. She needs to grow as an artist and her pride is getting in her way and she is going to be in for some tough shit when goes to an art school. So whatever Detlef, you're obviously so much better than me and the other artists here that we have no idea what we are talking about! Continue on in your supreme way and we can only hope you post your work here so we can bask in your glory.
wtf chains [editline]26th February 2012[/editline] I responded to your hostile description of me, I never said I wont work to improve.
It makes sense to me that he would paint that if it was his first time using oils. It's a good idea to stick to a very comfortable subject when you're using a new medium.
[QUOTE=Detlef;34879960]wtf chains [editline]26th February 2012[/editline] I responded to your hostile description of me, I never said I wont work to improve.[/QUOTE] There is no nice way to put what he said, and he has a point.
[QUOTE=Detlef;34879960]wtf chains[/QUOTE] No, don't wtf me. I tired of you acting this way, and if I have to be a blunt asshole for you to finally get the message, then I will be one. You have great fucking potential but you need to refine it and GROW! You are not going to get anywhere if you do not branch out and currently you are staying at the same quality you were a few months ago. You should want to learn more and explore and hunger for knowledge, not push it away and that is what youre doing. So cut the shit, and start practicing different body types as they exist and if you want to draw a proper human then you need to learn the varying forms in which it comes in.
I am not rude in my critique [editline]26th February 2012[/editline] I knew painting that picture was a mistake.
[QUOTE=Detlef;34880018]I am not rude in my critique[/QUOTE] hahahaha You're serious?
while you have many valid points chains, I don't think I am superior and I don't live off my pride.
[QUOTE=Detlef;34880018]I am not rude in my critique[/QUOTE] A few pages back you gave someone an extremely blunt and vague critique and when they asked you to go into detail you told them to "go figure out themselves". This subject of your rude critique has come up multiple times and yet you still argue that youre not rude? Whatever Detlef, live in whatever delusion you want to, I am done with this argument.
[QUOTE=ADT;34880036]hahahaha You're serious?[/QUOTE] yeah! I remember I used to critique very harshly, but I am very careful now and I can't seem to remember last time I ever were as harsh as people here think I am. [editline]26th February 2012[/editline] jesus christ I think you guys are overreacting
Hey chains, maybe what you're describing is not actually Detlef but just an exaggerated caricature of Detlef. Hey Detlef, maybe you should recognize that this exaggerated caricature, while not actually you, is at least somewhat representative of you and you have some stuff to work on.

A sketch of an enemy soldier for that platformer game. Thoughts on which style looks nicer? I'm unsure if I want everything in a style consistent with the protagonist, or having her be the only one with the silhouette gimmick. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/52726455/Soldiers.png[/img]

[QUOTE=MakoSkyDub;34875944]Why so serious First off, finding out if there's a legitimate reason he doesn't want to try it himself is the first step to putting him on the path to being more artistic. Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll never go hungry. Plus, a man can speak for himself. Second, I wasn't attacking her, over that or over anything. I wrote a second, mediating post to try to explain that. In the end, if you want to read me like a cunt and say I'm never helpful or out to get everyone, it's your problem. I don't try to get anyone riled up. Hell, I've thought you're a pretty shitty poster from what I've seen of you in the past as well, but you're not some troll or anything, so I really have no reason to care or say anything about it. It's not as though it inconveniences me in any way. Peace and love and shit [editline]26th February 2012[/editline] At the moment there's too many things wrong with it as compared to a person in proper proportion and perspective to give much feedback beyond "study anatomy". Go grab a reference photo of a person (full body) and try to replicate it. Let it be as rough as it comes out, and don't use any colour. Post your result after a couple of tries and there'll be a lot more to work with for us to help you get better. At the moment everything is stylised and symbolic, so you should move away from that, start using your eyes and trying to draw in three dimensions.[/QUOTE] it was mainly just for a small avatar but yeah i do know i need to work on my anatomy [editline]26th February 2012[/editline] thanks for the crits
Seems a lot of chaos is going on around here. Now I'm gonna try not to take any one's sides here, but from what I'm seeing there's a lot of anger building up mostly because Detlef keeps drawing the same looking guy again and again. Well I too feel she should sometimes branch out a bit more. But I will admit it definitely was an okay thing to do, drawing something familiar with an unfamiliar medium such as oil paints, and Mako shouldn't have gotten so aggressive with it. And come to think of it, Detlef had just done about 3 different comic panels for RA which all featured things she never usually draws.. So I'm not really seeing the problem with her drawing the teen deer guy with oils at least for now. But yeah, Detlef, for your next oil painting, why don't you try something new, give yourself the hardest assignment possible, it'll be a great way of practice.. Try it on a smaller canvas though, as to not waste too much money when experimenting.. As for your critiques, Detlef, they are kind of right on this.. You can get off a bit blunt which isn't really good, but it's not too constructive and can come off as rude, which is why it may seem hypocritical when you get defensive towards blunt repetitive critiques. However, I have noticed you in the way you give them out, like the last one you did with Maya was pretty helpful. I think all of you need to be a bit more chill with each other. Seeing Mako explode on Detlef like that, its not really hard to see why Detlef got so defensive from the start, and then you came in with even more anger, Chains, you might have had some valid points, but so much anger like that is only going to result in more anger.
[QUOTE=theLazyLion;34883474]anger like that is only going to result in more anger.[/QUOTE] Agreed Everyone should just chillll We all love each other here in CWTDDAT
