    Default The Deviant Art of Konekodesu

    This is to my deviant art page... if you have an account, please comment there, and if not, please comment here- or both. I handle criticism poorly... so... be gentle... and add some compliments in your mix of criticism so I don't die of horror that I am poisoning people's eyes. (Don't I just scream of confidence?)

    Spendid! I liked Ameya in Seppengakure the most.

    I hope, now you won't kill me in my sleep.

    Ah, thank you! >_<

    Ameya in Seppengakure was one of my favorites of my own, but it didn't seem to catch much notice... even though it took me ages with all the details.

    *blinks* Where in the world did you pick up that low confidence? You should feel better about your art, yo, it doesn't match. You've obviously got great technique. Just keep it up and you'll get even better. *nod nod* I look forward to seeing more.

    Heh, thank you! I know I should, but there's artists my age that have ten times the talent and I feel overwhelmed at my lack of ability... and so much of the time I have no idea what I am doing. Mostly all internet tutorials... where I have learned what I know about Jasc PSP... and the works that I am most proud of have the least amount of favorites-- what am I missing? TT_TT

    I know I'm talented, but I know I could be better, I guess....... <_<

    XDD Hey hey, don't use deviant art as a rating system for your art. A lot of the time comments and favorites and things are based on your charisma, and how much you spam your art site. In order to catch attention you might actually need to gain more confidence in your art. ^^ You dont have to be so careful and you dont have to be apologetic for your art. You should have pride in it (otherwise it's not as fun to draw, is it?). Not to say you need to get a big head or anything. There's a huge difference in big headed maniacs and a level headed artist who know's where they stand. All you gotta do is be realistic and have a positive attitude. xD Know your strengths and know your weaknesses (by listening to constructive criticism) and once you do that you can improve and make your way up both in skill and in popularity. You cant be afraid of criticism, since seeing your art through another person's eyes and then adapting it through your own vision is the number one way of improving. ^^ Constructive criticism isn't meant to be an attack, it's simply the language of helpful artists.

    PS. I'm glad you know you are talented AND that you know you need improvment. That's the most important thing, so keep it with you. Remember, a talented artist will never think his or her art is at it's peak. There is ALWAYS room for improvement. It'd get boring if there wasn't, right? xD I've always thought that the funnest part of drawing is watching myself improve and I know I've still got a loong way till I'm happy with my stuff XD ... if I ever will be <3

    Aw, thank you, you're so sweet! >_<

    That's one of the things I find most troubling about being an artist though, is seeing how much you've improved when at the time, something you were so proud of brings horror to you now... ex: Sakura in Goth v. Ameya in Seppengakure-- love the last, hate the first (though it was the very first time I was using a vector program- and I knew nothing about layers-- nothing.)

    I just wish I knew what I was doing 100% of the time-- and get better even with all that knowledge... but as of now it's more like 20%... with trial and error and.... finally saying to myself there's nothing more I can do for it...

    HOLY SHIT

    THIS MAN SPEAKS THE TRUTH!

    People, this guy has said nicely what I couldn't. Deviant Art is a bad bad place, the only way people get noticed is by ass kissing and giving false compliments. Nothing constructive goes on there, it's just ass pat after ass pat. I fear that this place might succumb to that so I'll be here to put a stop to that.

    Anyway, this guy has said all that needs to be said, you're talented for sure, but your confidence could use a boost, don't downplay your art or the critisizms you want to recieve, the best crits I've ever had were people digging into me deep.

    Constructive crits are never mean and belittling, only bad crits are.
