How to get more from your commenters!If like me you crave critique and feedback, but only ever get "nice work" comments, here are some tips to get what you want!How to get more from your commenters! in Other More Like This
First of all, allow me to briefly elaborate on what I mean by critique and feedback.
Critique - Noun, A detailed analysis and assessment of something.
Someone who offers you a critique gifts you with a full evaluation of the good and bad parts of your piece, as well as offering ideas for its improvement.
Feedback - Noun, Information about reactions to a product.
They let you know which parts they like / don't like, and possibly how the piece made them feel.
Comments such as "Great work!" "Awesome" don't fall into either of these categories.
Reply to them with a question.
Asking a question prompts a response. Not only that, but it forces them to take a look at your work again! Below are two screenshots where I have used this technique.

I'm Taking Tutorial Requests!So for a while now I've been thinking of taking tutorial requests, specifically in the areas of:I'm Taking Tutorial Requests! in Personal More Like This
If you would like to request a tutorial in those areas, please just post it below. It can be anything from "How do I use the pen tool", to "What is the Rule of Thirds", and "How do I use box-shadow on text in CSS".
Alternatively, if there's a piece of art in my gallery you would like broken down, link me to it and I'll gladly create a walkthrough.
Be sure to watch me to see if your tutorial gets made. I'll be focusing on making 1 a week, and I'll feature in my journal which tutorial will be made each week.
