I am new here at SkinBase, and I've been getting good reviews for my art. I don't have any problem with people complimenting my work, but I would like to stimulate people to tell me if they have any criticism. In oher words, if you don't like my work, I'd also like to know. Of course, taste is an important factor. But still, if someone can give a reason for not likinga certain skin or wallpaper, I think we can all learn from it.

Does anyone share this opinion?

First of all, welcome to SB Happy . And yes, I share this opinion, as criticism is always welcome if made in a way in which we can improve our works ,skills and ideas. As an amateur photographer, I am much more at home when appreciating photographs from other SBasers and I try always to tell exactly what I think and when needed I always give my advice, technically speaking, and from my personal point of view.

I agree and I think everyone welcomes constructive criticism. Things have gotten ALOT better in that area in the past couple of years...I remember when comments used to get pretty vicious sometimes and a thick skin was required just to share your work with others... :-)
Of course, we all see through different eyes and it is basically a matter of individual taste but tips on the "mechanics" of creating an image, photograph or skin in a certain way are always helpful. Just an opinion... :-)

To me, constructive criticism is the most helpful - and more welcome - thing of all. As a beginner trying to learn the art of creating CGIs (didn´t even know what they were until a couple of years ago) I feel it would be presumptuous for me to offer critiques of another´s work, so I seldom do...besides, everyone else´s work always looks better than mine to my eyes. Grin I´m not so much lazy as I´m afaid of embarrassing myself - but I´ll try to do better in the future. Booming love

Problem is a lot of people percieve constructive criticism as a threat....they lack the maturity to see it as a tool to improve. Cool Wink Magician

I know what people you´re talking about...
Personally I like constructive criticism, but I can´t stand it if someone criticises me in a way that makes him seem like the best, and me like a total maggot. I started a riot over something like that in a project group at university (and eventually got fired)...

Agreed.I think some constructive criticism is particularly useful in this line of art since a good knowledge of techniques involved with different styles and programs can improve the quality of someone´s art. I´m still learning new things about the programs I use, which can be seen if you look at my uploaded work (I hope).

Quote ~ "Personally I like constructive criticism, but I can´t stand it if someone criticises me in a way that makes him seem like the best, and me like a total maggot"... well that isn´t constructive criticism is it, and anyone that feels they have to denegrate your work in that way is probably insecure ( or, like theatre critics, incapable of competing with your work and just plain jealous! ).

It´s the old "those who can do, those who can´t teach... and those who would like to to be able to do either critcise".

Don´t read too much into it... I think my work is crap, but a lot of other people seem to like it... it just makes me want to do better. lol
