Critoons is a group dedicated to providing critique for art in the Cartoons & Comics gallery.
To join, just click the "join" button at the top. Requests are automatically approved.
I created this group because I wanted to write more critiques (see the stamp above), and creating this group should make that easier. I tend not to critique outside of the Cartoons & Comics gallery and DA never seem to get around to making the critiqueable page sortable by medium, so if you use that page, you have to sort through a bunch of stuff in other galleries to find what you want to critique. Also because that page only catalogs art from artists with premium accounts, this gives non-premium members a way to request critiques as well.
All genres are accepted, including WIPs and scraps.
Deviation submissions are automatically accepted.
You do not need a premium account. (We can write critiques in comments.)
Submissions will only be rejected or removed if they're submitted to the wrong folder or violate the DeviantART terms.
Please select the critique folder most appropriate for your works and the kind of critique you'd like to receive.
We recommend (but don't require) that all members write at least 2 critiques each month. It's a small enough number that everyone should be able to handle it and if everyone wrote only 2 critiques each month, it would actually increase the amount of critique we all receive.
It's up to you what, when and how you critique. Having said that, here are a couple of fun tutorials on giving and receiving good critique:
One last note about the redlines & paintovers folder. Make sure you ask the original artist before you post a redline or a paintover. Yes, everything in this group for the purpose of receiving critique, but not everyone wants redlines and paintovers.
