First off - Great Idéa! I’m really looking forward to this forum.
I’m a bit worried about it, because it could end up as another “focused critique” where everyone
basically are silent, not saying a thing.
What I’ve seen over time here is that those who get’s helped are either the extreme-beginners or the absolute professionals.
There are a certain tendency to comment on works with “easy-to-spot” errors
and of course fan-boy commenting on the fantastic work.
Now…while there’s nothing wrong with that at all, one can wonder what happens to the mid-range posts.
It seems like deserted abandon-land where they can’t come any further because noone
has anything to say, it’s not good enough to make the better artists “bother” to help
and it’s too good for the rest to point out basic technical errors.
Example - some images & works & w.i.p’s I post - rarely or ever gets any feedback at all - that is HUGELY frustrating because
one feels that one doesn’t know where to take it from there.
I’ve been thinking - MAYBE the above has something to do with
the expression of the images alone, perhaps they really are
so BORING that no-one has anything to say.
In fact - if things are boring - I’d LOVE to know, and especially
getting feedback on how to improve that so it’d be more
God I’m excited about this new forum, I really hope that
this is what can PUSH things forward.
