bex's crit thread

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm bex, and I'm here to offer some critique. My strengths are stock use, composition/placement, and making graphics flow! I struggle with text, varying my colouring, and image quality (damn gimp 2.10) . I'm telling you this because even at master artist, we can still suck at stuff - I'll be the first to admit that we do. I'm also telling you because it's important to know where we excel and where we need work. I'm offering that in the form of critique! 

 

I prefer giving harsh critique, telling you where and how you can improve. If you don't want harsh crit, let me know and I'll soften it up. If you like I can give you a cleanout (be warned they can be ruthless) and a challenge. The challenge will be asking you to make a graphic that's out of your comfort zone i.e a blend using a minimum of four different models (that would be my challenge, i hate blends!)

 

Fill out the form below, if you want a cleanout and/or challenge please let me know in the form somewhere! 

 

If you don't want specific crit, and would just like to know more about how I make my graphics, or any questions about a specific piece in my gallery, you can ask on my Q&A thread+. I've also got tutorials on gradient blending+ and stock use+

 

Given the weird times we're in, for now I'm going to say this is open to any rank, with unlimited spaces. Depending on how well this does, that may change! 

 

The form:

[b]Artist Name[/b]:
[b]Acknowledged Weak Points[/b]: (i.e., 'blending')
[b]Type of Critique Requested[/b]: (i.e., 'my banners always come out cluttered - how can i prevent that from happening?')
[b]Software[/b]: (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, etc...)
[b]Most Recent Gallery Update[/b]: (i.e., date)
[b]Gallery Link[/b]: [url=LINKHERE]Gallery[/url]
[b]Requested Time Frame[/b]:

Hey! Just to let you know, I have seen this - I've just been really busy and in the midst of a slump myself. I'll get this written and up for you in the next week. I hope that's okay!
