Hey guys! :) for those who don't know, I've been learning to paint for 4 months now. I want to learn as fast as I can from all you pros on here, so I thought I'd start something like an ongoing contest to give away points and help me improve.

So, basically:
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:

Prizes:
  1. First Critique - 20 :points:
  2. Best Critique - 100 :points:
  3. Random Critique or Comment - 20 :points:
Notes:
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, Star!favStar! 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 :D

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 :wow: 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 :D looking forward to hopefully making some friends in the along the way! If you've got any questions, just pop them in the comments :)

Any deviation that's less than a week old - you can check when I submitted it in the 'details' section on the right side bar. Thanks :) (sorry for the late reply!)
