Month of May: Free For All

Journal Entry: Tue May 1, 2012, 12:38 PM


After Many Requests



:new: Our gallery closes TODAY! So get your work in before midnight Eastern time tonight! :heart: There are still 6 slots left. Remember, your work cannot be accepted if your artist's comment doesn't contain the group's icon and at least 2 questions for potential critics.

I have decided to open up the month of May to any type of art or literature. We will still only have 25 spots available, and everyone must comment on at least one other piece in the gallery. Submissions will be open from May 1st to May 20th.

:pointr: If you wish to submit work for critique:
:bulletblue: First, read our guidelines. Any submissions that do not adhere to submission guidelines will be rejected.
:bulletblue: If you have work you feel is ready for critique, submit it to our Featured Gallery. Remember, the submission cut-off date is Sunday, May 20th OR when we reach 25 pieces. Get your work in early!
:bulletblue: Comment on another piece in the featured gallery. This is a requirement.
:bulletblue: Leave a direct link to your comment on this blog. FAQ #14: How do I create a link to a specific comment?

:pointr: If you wish to be entered in the points drawing:
:bulletblue: First, read our guidelines.
:bulletblue: Leave as many comments as you'd like on pieces in our Featured Gallery.
:bulletblue: Leave a direct link to each of your comments on this blog. FAQ #14: How do I create a link to a specific comment? Multiple links together is fine.
:bulletblue: Remember: If you submit work this week, your first comment does NOT count toward the points drawing. You must make at least one more comment to be entered in the drawing.

:thumb289461634: Writing Useful Critiques
Preface

This article is written for LitResources. Our goal is to be a collection and creation station for all resources pertaining to literature on deviantART. This article will feature the wonderful world of critique! DeviantART staff recently made it possible for unsubscribed members to leave critiques using the premium feature, so we thought it was an opportune moment to educate the community about the many facets of critique.
If, after reading the article, you have more information or resources to add, please leave your thoughts in a comment! And don't forget to :+favlove: this article to help spread the word.

Critique: What It Is, What It Is Not

Though the distinction might seem obvious to some, people often confuse writing a critique with writing a review.
To make it plain, a critique offers thoughts and advice for improving a piece of literature or art. Cri

Second note (the first is right below this one :icondownarrowplz:) =

From the Literature Gallery, I also left a critique in the "Critique Box" on May 13, early AM, PDT.
Because it's sent to the writer first, I don't know when or even if it will be accepted, but am sure it will accepted, though unsure about when. I know you understand what I mean by "Critique Box" though it isn't really called that. The lit crit box open for premium members, it seems.

It's done on "Coppelia" by =XxXTalithaXxX -no ordinary link, only a thumb (which I doubt will show here) - :thumb200774489: It's a second critique not from Features, but done for the club. Thank you!

Hello, =Kneeling-Glory
As you already know, I've never been able to successfully use the "FAQ" regarding "How To Link Comments." This is because my computer is literally falling to pieces. I put a lit piece in for lit crit very recently. And on "May, 13, 2012, 4:56:50 AM" left a critique here, on ~Charmed-Ravenclaw's t-shirt design from the Featured gallery. And I hope I have the normal link correct for you. Will you let me know, please? Thank you for your patience with :stupidme: ... [link] Thanks again to all involved in this club! :)

It's good that you've made such a good constructive comment. Unfortunately I can't quite register it because you were suppose to comment on someone else's piece from the current featured gallery of this month's theme. See [link] Sorry, I should have been more specific when I wrote the other comment.

sorry for, like, never getting back to you. ): I have just been very busy and the inspiration to critique has been lost, especially since what was featured was not quite something I could give decent feedback to. sorry, again. I hope it is not too late to amend this whole thing.

I have made a comment on an artist's work. It is not a "formal critique", but it is in the comments:
