So You Want to Critique
Here is a two-fold guide for deviants wishing to receive critique as well as deviants who want to give constructive critiques:
A Note to Non-subscribers
You're allowed to give and receive critique, too! The system for subscribers that dA has put in place is flashy, sure, but it doesn't alter the content of a quality critique. Comments have worked just fine for many years. I see no reason why you should stop using the tried and trusted system just because something new has come along. Now, onto the article!
Make Sure the Feeling's Mutual
Some people don't give critiques. Some people don't want critiques. That's okay. Being a member of dA does not precondition you to the critique-crowd.
However, if you do want to be a critique-groupie, make sure the artist you're giving critique to actually wants it. If the critique option is not enabled, or there's no request for critique in the comments, chances are critique is unwanted. If there's something you really, really want

Faithless Among the Faithful
I was sinking in despair,
With my lifeline right over there
It was just out of reach to me,
'Cause I was too proud to ask,
So I could never receive
I was drowning in,
My own tears,
Submerged by the pressure,
Of my own fears,
When suddenly,
My eyes blinked
And it became so very clear...
I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
I was quitting when I was able,
To stand up on my own
And I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
So it's time to turn the tables,
Or else risk living life alone
(Faithless, faithless, among the faithful)
(Faithless, so faithless, among the faithful)
I was sitting down,
At a feast for ten,
But for some reason I just,
Couldn't dig in,
I was starving myself of more,
Than just food
I lift a glass,
To drink my fill,
But the only thing I can do,
Is slowly spill,
The drops of my life
All across the room...
I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
I was quitting when I was able,
To stand up on my own
And I was!
Faithless among the faithful,
So it's time to turn the tables,
Or else

Compliments {16/30}
Flushing and blushing
I dare not believe
Those bringing and singing 
The words I receive;
I am not, I can not
Be all that you say
Because I have only
My best on display.
I yammer and stammer
A gracious reply
While thinking and blinking 
A tear from my eye;
I blunder and wonder
What is it you see?
And how can such words
Be directed at me?

PE: Giving and Receiving Quality Feedback

Giving and Receiving Feedback 

One of the most useful things on deviantart is the option to give and receive feedback. There are different kinds of feedback. This article aims to inform you on how to give quality feedback and hopefully receive it. 
Types of Feedback


One of the quickest ways to interact with others. From journals, to forums, to art, to profiles, comments are used everywhere. However, the quality can range from spam, to constructive. 

Any deviant can write them,(~,*,=,`,^ etc.) but only premium members can request them. Constructive comments can substitute for these. Critiques take some time to write, and really provide insight. If used correctly, can be a wonderful way to give/receive constructive criticism.

This is important to receiving feedback. If you give, you are l

Open letter to Maybelline
After a fierce word-fight against both my father and the magazine-seller I finally got what I wanted. It was an issue of a greek monthly magazine with diverse subjects on and around technology issues focusing in DIY home-built projects. Both my father and the seller tried to deter me from buying that particular magazine on the grounds that I was way too young to even try to read it. Well, I fought well.
When I opened it and started to read, a whole universe popped out! Incredible machines, gadgets, info, 3 unknown words in every sentence and yet! Photographs, pictures, sketches, diagrams and schematics fuelled my mind. Indelible from memory is an article about a fantastic (for my then age) task "Build your own pool table" Oh, the amount of detail about preparing, marking, cutting and assembling the wooden parts. It is there! I see it! This is beauty! Then the next issue was out.
Now, fasten your seatbelts and keep your hands inside at all times. One of the main articles inside had the
