How I Critique Without Being A Jerk (I hope)
I have to start this by saying I am writing this partly out of guilt because I broke some of my rules recently.  And I kicked myself all evening over it, asking what the hell I was thinking and why I didn't be a better person and even though I've been told 'it's not your fault' I'm like yes it was my fault because I was there and I broke my own rules.  And maybe it's no big deal and I'm overreacting but I broke my own rules.  The rules I made for reasons.
See, I have rules about critiquing.  The first rule is “Don't.”  The second rule is “Don't, except for very rare exceptions.”  And the third rule consists of a method I've developed to keep my own asinine tendencies in check and to ensure I don't trample all over the other person in the name of ARTISTIC CRITQIUE OMMMMG.

Get Inspired! Do Not Be Discouraged!
This journal is a reflection of my thoughts and experiences from the past several months. It's for anyone who is currently looking into hobbies or careers, not just art.
During my time as an artist, I get comments from people telling me that I have Inspired them to draw. I love that, I really love it when someone tells me that they started drawing because of my own work. It feels good knowing my work has that ability to provoke action in others. However, lately I had some close friends and associates get the point where they stop their strive altogether, because of my work.  This isn't speculation, it's direct information from the source. It's disheartening to see that happen, so if you are feeling the same way, please take note of the rest of this journal.
Don't strive for popularity.
This seems to be the root for the majority of problems I've seen. I've seen many beginners start drawing expecting a large amount of watchers and comments to happ

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:A very good day to you, human. I come to you on your day of birth with greetings... and thanks.
:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
:iconcelestiaorlyplz::iconsaysplz:Now... where is she...
:iconlunawaveplz::iconsaysplz:Here, sister!
