And we're all here for feedback, right?
26_994 voiced his opinion. If you're gonna post stuff, expect to get various response - be that feedback, opinion, troll-talk or hate-talk. 29_994 just gave an opinion - I hope true to his heart.
Sure, he could hold back on it, but then again - why should he? Of course, it would be nice if he'd tell what kind of brilliance is he expecting. I don't know 'bout how you feel, but his comment would make me think about my flaws rather than make me upset and force me to order him to shut up
. I'd understand the fuss if it was a hatefull comment or troll comment, but 'twas just an opinion. Telling to shut up
just shows that one cannot take opinion. And if you can't take a simple, blunt opinion then how can you imagine to take harsh critique?
I don't see a point in getting uptight about a guy who told what is on his wavelenght. Moreso, I have to say that I agree with him. There's nothing brilliant here. But I understand that BeDaOrLiSeAr is a young dude and he's developing in terms of drawing(in terms of teenage hormone storm too, I guess
). He posts lot's of stuff here, scratch quality, but he does draw a lot. I can tell that I saw some improvement from first post, but - truth to be told - not that big. When I was 13 or so I could change styles and the way I've drawn in months, although I couldn't see that until recently. And here - I don't see that much.
So, yes, I don't see anything brilliant here and if BeDaOrLiSeAr isn't an emo or a stuck up fellow, then he shouldn't take that as an offense. It's a statement, sure, on the negative side, but without any malice.
But, if a feedback is a must on this forum, then I believe that you should work with other stuff, i.ex. draw stuff that belongs to other - to grasp their style, look for some new ways of solving your problems, dealing with limitations. Sure, create your own stuff, but also draw by imitating works of others. You're young, you'll have tons of time to think about your characters. Meanwhile focus on improving by learning varieties of styles. Your own will surface one day, eventually. And as for chacters - write stories, novels, scripts. Improve on that field if you want to make comics - no matter if for your own enjoyment or for enjoyment of others. And if you want the latter - then you should definiately improve, because if you're gonna draw like the way you do now when you'll be 20, not many folks will care about it. And then, the heavy critique hammer will fall down hard. You still have some years to improve, if you really like it, and lot's of room for improvement.
Not to pose on the wise guy, I suck too, you know. :-)
