Q:Hi, you guys have helped me improve a lot since I started drawing. One of my drawings was critiqued a while back and it helped so much. I wanted to say thank you again, and I was wondering when submissions will be open again.
I’m glad we were to help you, it’ll be a while before we open again because we got a number of entries last time. We’ll make sure to post a heads up next time we open!
Q:I would like to have my work critiqued but I don't really know where to post links o:
Right now we’re full on critiques and have closed the submission link but don’t worry, we’re working on critiques and trying to get them out as fast as possible! Be on the lookout for the next submission post!
Q:So the text on the left says submissions are open, but according to your post they're not, so I just thought you might want to know ^^;
Oh thank you! I’ll change that some time today :)
Q:Thank you for your review of my gallery! And thanks for the advice, I'll try it ^^
You’re very welcome! :)
Q:Do any of your admins use Furaffintiy or Weasyl? And do you allow mature [e.g. artistic nudes] to be submitted?
hello, 22mg here! i don’t know how the other mods feel about that subject matter, but you are more than welcome to message me on my personal blog, weasyl, or furaffinity and i’d be more than happy to give you feedback, redlines, or some nice references that i like to use! you can also private message me anywhere to get my skype handle so i can talk to you in real time~

Hello! Admin Tina here!
Your art is coming around really nicely with drawing both figures and creatures such as Pokemon. I really like how you push yourself with your work. Especially with making comics, your attempts with figures and color theory.
The two biggest things I see with your work are Composition and Color Theory. In some cases, such as [x] [x] I fee like you’re cutting your composition too close and not allowing enough breathing room.
Here is FZD’s video on painting over a student’s piece. It helps describe composition, which is ultimately what will make all of your art interesting. It will make or break your work. Also check out our sister blog Art and Sterf if you haven’t already and go through their composition blog here.
With Color Theory, your art is way too saturated. Even if this is a style, your art will greatly improve if you choose more **unsaturated colors. Your objects will appear more dynamic and will look more fuller if you were to implement more saturation. I know that those colors sound gross, but Sycra’s video [x] will show you have to pick colors that work very well together.
Please also check out A&S’s tagged posts here on Color Theory. That’s about it for now! Don’t want to overwhelm you! Good luck and happy arting :)
**editted, sorry about the confusion!
Hello, this is my deviantart -> http://chitsuu.deviantart.com/
I recently had a fresh start and would like to have your opinion on this gallery, such as what to work on.
Thank you very much.
Hello chitsuu. uvu First off I’d like to say that there is a softness to your work that I really like, and the color schemes are nice. It looks like most of your colored works are watercolor, so I would suggest watching watercolor process videos on youtube or vimeo. I’ve always felt like process videos help me with coloring, so I hope they can help you too.
I think what will help you most is drawing and painting from life! For anatomy especially, doing a lot of more loose drawings (both from imagination and reference) will allow you to experiment and learn about anatomy and form. Draw lots of figures on the same page! Do this with anything you want to improve. Larolaro has some good examples:
and doing this from life is good too!
As for working on painting, doing watercolors from life or photo can help. I recommend high contrast lighting so the different values and shadows are easy to see.
FINALLY I really like that you’re drawing different types of characters doing different things. Allowing yourself to draw lots of stuff and experiment will only help you grow as an artist. I hope this critique helps!
Submissions are Temporarily Closed For Now
Due to the crazy amount of submissions we have gotten, we’re putting a hold on crits for now until we get some out. Thanks for your support!
Submissions Are Open!
Please be aware that we are only taking links to places such as your art blog, art tag, deviantArt, or any other form of host for your art.
We are only critiquing your overall progress and not your individual works. This is an experiment to see if this is more helpful to you guys.
If you send us individual pieces, we will not critique them and will be subjected to deletion.
If you do not have a link, a post of several of your works will work.
Thank you all for being so supportive and sticking with us through our slow times.
We have finished all the crits, but now I think we should do a change in pace.
I’ll open up submissions tomorrow, but instead of individual pieces I think it would be helpful if you all sent us your links to your art blogs and we take a look at your overall progress and tell you what we think you should be working on and what we think is working for you now.
What do you guys think?
