Ok OK whatever...So what is the difference between a "proper" critique, constructive, criticism, and someone just nitpicking?
Here are examples.
Example of a nitpick I have received on my art work quite often.
"Ugh.. you have drawn the boobs way to big on that character in comparison to how it is drawn in the comic book."
My Take on This Response
The person clearly voiced their opinion.But chose to only notice what they felt was a flaw in the work.I openly admit to drawing big breasts on most of my fan art.So the response was valid.But not fully explained.To me the artist I'm left wondering if the person just doesn't like big boobs or the drawing in general.The only thing they pointed out and "picked" on was how big I drawn the characters boobs. As the artist getting that response I'm left wondering where is this person going with this type comment. And you as the person posting the comment has just opened up a can of worms that you may not have the time or state of mind to deal

I will go through the following cases of being ignored:
Do know, that even though being ignored feels very personal it's hardly ever personal at all!
Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T
