You might as well have said, "No offensive but..." It's passive aggressive and it's obnoxious. Just say what you really mean, "This is fucking stupid. Why the fuck would a hunter have a bunch of magic glitter flying around her? You probably had no idea what to do with the background so you just scribbled a bunch of green bullshit all over the place to distract people. What a joke."
ABSOLUTELY NOT. I have no interest in being light and quiet about my critiques. If I had intended to say something like that, I would have done so in it's full, unedited glory. I really enjoyed the composition of the piece and had one complaint. I stated that complaint. I might have been less than clear when doing so, but there was NO negative intention OR judgment to be had on my side. In terms of context, it is difficult to decipher the code that is critique via a platform such as deviantART, so I feel there is some sort of disconnect between what you really read and what you think you've read. That being said, have a good day. I hope, for your sake, that you find a place in your psyche where you can deal with comments on a civilized, understanding field.
You clearly didn't get response. Which is understandable.
It was my way of explaining why I did all the stupid green magical shit. Re-read what I said again... I never assumed that that was what you were actually trying to say, it's really what I was thinking about my own piece. Your comment reflected my own hatred for this painting. GET IT?
Either way, I apologize. I actually love critiques... I was just in a shitty mood. On top of that I really hate this painting. I haven't played WoW in over 2 years and I forgot this painting even existed. I honestly don't even remember wtf a hunter even does anymore.
It strikes me as generic fantasy art. The kind you see on the cover of books. That said, you have talent. I just don't think it's being applied in an original fashion. Barely clad fantasy women are a dime a dozen. Just my two cents, please don't take it as a personal insult.
No I SINCERELY appreciate this. I wish more people would leave me comments like this. I can't improve if I don't know what to improve on!
And I completely agree with you, it's definitely not original, the composition is boring, there isn't much to it. It's very... one dimensional if you will.
But this was my first "fantasy" piece. And I just really wanted to see if I could just PAINT a blood elf. I didn't want to worry about all the other stuff. Hince the green nonsense flying around. LOL Didn't want to worry about a background. So yeah I'm taking it one step at a time. Hopefully one day I will be able to produce a piece that is mind blowing. But for now this will have to do. :-\
Anyways, THANK YOU!
<3 Please leave me more critiques on my future works!
