Candy by Pikapetey Candy by Pikapetey
I work as an animator and I recieve critiques over my work all the time. To the point where, the only "good" remark I ever recieve is "yeah, that works. Ok good."

That is very rare and few inbetween.

What I normally recieve is mistakes that I've made in the piece and changes I need to make. This, I love to recieve than "WOW GREAT!". I'd rather be told things that I did wrong than to go through the rest of my artistic career never improveing because I don't know any better.


Which brings us to an artist I dubbed "CANDY" I'm not going to tell or the real account, nor will I encourage people to find the account and post comments. If I catch you I will bann you from my account and display your horrible comment in my gallery.

Unfortunatly CANDY had other intentions, for I recieve a lot of encourageing notes from CANDY'S followers such as:

"GO TO HELL YOU SACK OF SHIT."
and
"YOU'RE JUST A TALENTESS TROLL."


Oh CANDY, My dear sweet CANDY, don't worry, I wont bother you again. ...


ever.....


*****READ ME*********
People are thinking I randomly started critiquing CANDY's art on her comment section. THAT IS NOT THE CASE.

My critiques at the top of this piece are explanations to why CANDY's art didn't make it into pony pros. The messages that CANDY received were only viewable between the Founders of Pony Bros, CANDY, and Me. So there is no potential "exposure" to the artist's "ego." I try to be aware of my own personal taste when critiquing art that is submitted to Pony Bros and will approach it with unbiased view.

What I DO look for and can clearly spot is SLOPPY art. I explained to CANDY that the way the ponies are drawn is a very simple style with LOTS of anatomy laid on into the image. This style of drawing does not allow for a lot "wiggle room" when drawing as any mistakes in the anatomy and perspective of the image will become glaringly obvious. At Pony Bros, we receive A LOT of submissions into the OC category, so art that gets admitted to that category has to be truly exceptional. A pony with drawn with mistakes in perspective, and nothing else but a plain background just doesn't make the cut. If these pieces were drawn with an exceptional background then they probably would have been admitted.

We have a lot of entries to shift though at Pony Bros don't have time to write a paragraph for each entry that is denied. So I cut out the fluff and get straight to the point. I think an explanation to why the art didn't make the cut is far better than no comments at all. Like I would rather receive a rejection letter to a job that I applied to or a text from a friend saying that they will have to cancel going to the movies than no responses at all.

Look PikaPetey, I think Candy's work is awesome. I don't know when you posted and if you already have your attitude adjusted, tell me.
I like the idea of critiqueing work. Heck, I do it when the artists ask. But not adding anything encouraging or saying what she does well makes it seem like you are trolling her. I have a friend who had to stop because she couldn't deal with people like you who troll unintentionally. There are limits to critiques. I also think that she shouldn't have put so many people against you. and those notes seem really unnecessary. Just watch how you word things.

come on dude, I know a ADHD brain can do it! (lol just look at me.)

When I need to focus on things I play a specific type of music to distract myself so I can focus. Normally it has lots of wubs and base.

yeah but...doesn't DA give you an option to ask for critiques...

personally i wouldn't like it either if a random person critiqued my art without even asking for a critique.

It's a rule in my group, she read the rules and she knew how it work. She should have said something if it was getting on her nerves but she did the immature thing and made a journal about him and we got shit loads of spam.

So wait, (please forgive me I'm just really stupid..) were they asking for critiques and you gave it to them? Or were you critiquing randomly?

But I'm sorry you were sent with some insults. *hugs* And anyone who was sent with insults.

all the critiques that are pictured above is what an artist recieves if there pieces DOES NOT make the cut to enter into the group Pony Bros. The critique I Submited to CANDY is explaining why the work wasn't acceptted into the group.

The messages that CANDY recieved were private between CANDY, 800dyrain, and me, but only viewable in the group subbmission window.

I if you read DID NOT ATTACK CANDY AS AN ARTIST. I only critiqued the work that CANDY produced, apparently artist like CANDY are so attached to their work they take it as an insult.

If I reacted this way as an animator I would have been fired.

I can see why it hurt, but there's a difference between bullying and honest criticism...

peter did give an honest critique. this person replied with harshness and even sent her watchers to him. when people make posts about others "bullying them" its ONLY to attack them. if she didn't want to attack him she would have cept the whole thing under the table. simply by making a journal and saying that he was mean she is in fact telling her watchers strait up. go get this guy. and they did. hes been receiving many threats and hate mail all from her watchers. so tell me.

whos the real bully?.

...what on earth are you talking about? That's what I said. He gave her honest criticism, not "bullying" messages. I can empathise with her hurt feelings, because I would be too, but I would certainly not do this, this is bullying in itself. I totally agree with everything you say. O.o

...you started arguing with me...O.o

It's not really a personal opinion, it's a false accusation by someone else designed to bully the other, in this case, "CANDY" using his criticism to get people to abuse him.

candy is a girl ^^. also. im starting to have trouble understanding you. because you are basically saying what i was saying. and if thats the case. why go on if you already agree ^^.

oh. wait XD. no you see pekapetey is a professional animator. he lives in a house with other animators and artists. so he gets lots of criticisms from them but they aren't trying to be mean. they criticize his work so he can get better. and they all do it to each other.

and pekapetey did this with candy. he gave her a fair criticism of her work and i agree with it she does in fact need to work on her eyes ^^.

however she did not act mature and just say thanks or try to have a real conversation about it. she basically raged and said that pekapetey is a troll because hes a new artist here on DA. and that was really her only nitch that she could grap at

"It's not really a personal opinion, it's a false accusation by somepony else(Candy) designed to bully the other(Pika), in this case, "CANDY" using his(Pika's) criticism to get ponies to abuse him(Pika)."

O.o I know you and I are on the same tune, why are you being weird about it? Let's just have a cup of coffee already!
