Our Mission



At Critique-It, we believe constructive feedback is one of the mainstays of deviantART's thriving community of artists and writers. We feel that the exchange of information and knowledge is just as important as amassing :+fav:s and :+devwatch:s. And, we feel that every deviant, regardless of symbols, can and should participate in that exchange.

Our mission is to facilitate that exchange through concentrated commenting efforts that focus on improvement, encouragement, and education.

How to Win Friends and Influence Deviantart Part 1
*Title stolen from a well-known and favourite book of mine
Part 1: Submitting with POWER
I know there are a million "how to be popular" guides on DA and a million more parody versions of them. This article isn't about becoming popular, or starting drama or racking up pageviews as fast as possible for the sake of seeing a larger number.
This article won't make your art better, or make you more a more popular personality. However, what I've noticed is that many artists are missing out on feedback and exposure that they should be getting if not for a few common mistakes. Time after time, I've read on Artist's Confessions, or just browsing through members' personal journals that their gallery doesn't recieve any traffic and they can't improve because they're not getting any feedback. They feel like their lack of popularity is a personal statement. That their art isn't worth looking at. This is entirely untrue.
Hopefully this will help you, the underexposed artist, to b

The Hard Work of Poetry
Poets are constantly crippled, creatively. It's the way it works. You write a line and, just now, right now, it seems like it's the best line in the world to date. It's a shiny, beautiful line, a thought, an image so remarkably profound that you are in awe of yourself, or (if you are a seasoned poet) in awe of that angelic being which sits on high in your mind and occasionally drops little scraps of poetic manna into your head. Now, you only need to write a poem around it.
And fail.
Because the poem takes over, sprouts a million legs and scurries in directions you had no real intention of it going – and now the Wondrous Line of Glory and Poetic Win doesn't fit. You have to either change it or take it out and save it for another poem. Or make it a haiku-like short poem on its own, so all those other words don't assault it again. If you're an experienced poet, you'll probably just store it in a .txt file or on a post-it note somewhere and lament it until you're old and nothing matte

Members of Critique-It,

It's not easy to give and get feedback. If it was easy, we'd all be giving and getting a lot of feedback. It wouldn't matter if the feedback was comments, critiques, :+fav:, :+devwatch:, exposure - you would get lots of it on every piece of artwork you uploaded.

The sad reality is that doesn't happen on DeviantArt. If it does for you, awesome - this message isn't for you. For the majority on this community, though, our art barely gets seen, let alone faved or critiqued.

That's part of the reason why ProjectComment was created. Like many comment/critique/feedback groups, ProjectComment was made to give you the comments you deserve.

Every single one of you deserves one comment. That has been our unwavering belief since 2009. But, it's not enough to exist on belief. What do I mean by that? Well, nobody can get comments if nobody gives them.

Instead of dividing a community filled with aspiring artists between groups that are no longer active, join us today at ProjectComment. Join us in uniting our community, supporting one another, and fighting against the lack of feedback that can be seen everywhere on DeviantArt.

Take note: I'm not offering a magic button, or a genie in the bottle, that will grant you every kind of feedback you desire, whenever and as often as you wish. That's fantasy - it doesn't exist in reality.

What I am offering is a platform, that has existed for more than 8 years, so that we can come together and support one another. If you're not interested in helping your fellow artist who is in the same exact position as you, don't bother.

I'm not saying it's going to be easy. It's going to take a lot of time, effort and more, but together... we make a difference.

Join Us At :iconprojectcomment: Today


:points: Support our mission by donating to CommentOutreach here. Small or big, every little bit helps.

And if, at the end of all that, DeviantArt isn't for you...

Hello! :lol:
I am a new member of this group and have been really wanting some constructive feedback to help me improve as an artist in this community. Unfortunately, I am unable to submit any of my pieces into this group for some reason as I do not "have permission" as described even though I am a member.

Anyway, these are a few of my pieces I've been wanting some feedback on and was really hoping that someone could help me out.

Thank you.
