I like giving critiques to help out, but I also like to receive critiques so that I can get better :')

If I post my art it's a finished piece of work and the "critiques" I get are along the lines of "I don't like her arm". I am used to getting feedback from editors so it's not that I can't take critiques, it's just that most people do it here are kind of dicks about it and feel that you need to put up with their abuse else you are a "bad person and bad artist".

I love getting critique because I am always looking to improve.
I also think other people can spot whats wrong better than you can or they might see something you didn't when you drew it c:

"It depends on who is critiquing me.... It just seems like some people have no room to judge my artwork." ---> this, but rephrased into "It depends on who is critiquing me. The people who's opinion insterests the most are people in my field (especially those who I know personally: teachers and fellow animation students) and those who I respect (not necessarily artists: family, friends)."
It's not that some people have no room to judge my artwork. It's that their opinion might not weigh as much as professionals' and those, who know me personally.

It does depend a lot for me, haha! Like if a picture is supposed to be really personal or venty I'd prefer not to get critique on it since the picture wasn't drawn for improvement purposes... or when people critique my quick doodles or something, just because they're not meant to be taken seriously <___> 
Personally I get very nervous about getting critique but still find it to be very helpful!

I don't usually ask, as I'll spend days looking at my last piece anyways, just picking out things I could have done better. But when I receive critique, I usually have a moment of 'ffff waaahh' that quickly fades into 'omg you're so right ;3;'. I am always trying to keep learning as an artist... overall I do like getting helpful critiques even if it stings a little at first. Gotta keep striving to be better and all that. 8D I probably should ask for more critiques if I want to do this professionally x.x Because I am too much of a baby right now fff.

I don't ask for it but I get it and when it's usable and helpful I'll use it :)

Same here. Some unwanted critique is just unnecessary though, I will admit. Sometimes it's just not constructive at all. D: Like...why tell me this?

Exactly. 
I don't mind if people give tips or help on areas I know I need to improve on but when it's basically telling me I'm doing it all wrong that's a bit annoying, know what I mean? 
It's a good thing we can choose not to follow it all, right? :XD:

same uou

Usually I rely on my own opinions though. I might get a little bothered when someone points something out to me that I can see myself. I won't get mad or anything though pff I usually just grit my teeth

I mean I already have issues with aspects of my own art that I acknowledge to myself and make it my job to work on. When I'm already gonna do it and someone points it out I'm like I KNOWWWW FFFFF... ;-;

I KNOW EXACTLY all the critiques I get are either for things I'm already like "wow i suck @ dis" or for purposeful stylistic choices. Yes he doesn't have a nose. No I doN'T CARE IT'S ON PORPOISE
