I'm giving away points to people who critique my work. Each new deviation of mine will be open for critiques in its comments section, and there will be 3 prizes totalling 140 points per painting:
- First Critique - 20
- Best Critique - 100
- Random Critique or Comment - 20
The 'First Critique' prize goes to the first critique, unless it's really short (i.e. less than 100 words, say). All 3 prizes will be sent and announced in the comments section of the deviation roughly 1 week after the deviation's submission date - and then the contest will close for that deviation. The 'Random Critique' prize can be won by anyone (even if you gave a very short critique or just a helpful comment).
Okay, so what do you do now?
Finish reading this journal, fav it, and then critique one of my deviations that is less than a week old and you're in the draw to win points!
How will I choose the Best Critique?
The best critique will be the one that best helps me to understand what I need to improve. A good critique will tell me what's good, what's bad, and *how to improve* the bad parts. It doesn't have to be long, but more detailed critiques are better. Also, don't be too nice! I prefer brutal critiques that get straight to the point about what I need to improve on
How long will this give-away go for?
Forever, or at least as far as the foreseeable future.
Can I win all three categories?
Yep, if you're the first, and the best, and you win the random prize, then you'll get 140 points You can submit multiple critiques, e.g. if you thought of another thing to add - it's just that they wont count as multiple items for the random prize.
How often do I post new paintings?
Once a week, minimum - usually more.
I think that's it. This should be fun looking forward to hopefully making some friends in the along the way! If you've got any questions, just pop them in the comments
